Birth injury and birth malpractice cases comprise a major portion of the medical negligence and malpractice claims The Law Office of Michael J. Weiss handles for our clients in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Improper or careless treatment during pregnancy or childbirth can result in or contribute to birth injuries. But medical practitioners and facilities have the means to minimize the chances of such injuries occurring. Routine tests and procedures can evaluate the health and progress of expectant mothers and their babies. Fetal monitoring during delivery can identify complications before they cause irreversible damage. But sometimes obstetricians or other health care providers fail to use accepted equipment and techniques, or may use them improperly.
Birth injuries cause physical, emotional, and financial hardships, and their impacts can be devastating for parents and children alike. Should these conditions arise as a result of improper care or medical error, it is important to safeguard the legal rights of the infant and the parent. Doctors and obstetricians as well as hospitals, health care facilities, nurses, and other health care providers and institutions may be liable for improper care that contributes to birth injuries. To maintain your rights, you need an expert birth injury attorney, brain injury attorney, or a lawyer well-versed in birth malpractice cases.
