Albany, New York Birth Injury Attorneys

Albany Birth Injury AttorneysThe birth of a child should be one of the happiest moments in a parent’s life, but accidents sometimes happen that cause irrevocable damage to the baby or mother. Many times these accidents are caused by the negligence of physicians, nurses, or other healthcare professionals. When the substandard care of a physician leads to severe birth injuries or the death of a child, parents need to seek the legal advice of an experienced birth injury lawyer.

Injuries and Warning Signals

Before, during, and directly after birth, babies are in the most vulnerable of states. Any trauma could severely impact the rest of that child’s life, but there are sometimes warnings that should signal doctors and nurses to a problem with the baby. Some of the common warning signs include: weight gain/loss, amniotic fluid leakage, premature labor/contractions, and change in blood pressure.

Unfortunately, some doctors may not react quickly enough to these distress signals leaving the baby and mother helpless. When a warning sign is not handled properly, the baby can be negatively affected with life-long results. There are many birth injuries that could produce life-long issues including:

  • Developmental Delay
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Clotting Issues (RH+, RH-)
  • Brachial Plexus
  • Bone Fractures
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Infections
  • Brain Damage
  • Internal Bleeding
  • Should Dystocia
  • Erb’s Palsy
  • Death

If you feel your baby has suffered serious injuries as a direct result of a physician’s negligence during the birthing process, consult an experienced NY injury lawyer to file a medical malpractice claim.
