Causes of Birth Injury in Queens County

Our firm can help you fight for your rights as you seek to ensure that the negligent party is held responsible for his or her medical malpractice. There are a variety of causes of birth injury, including a compressed or twisted umbilical cord, which can result in the deprivation of oxygen. If the obstetrician fails to properly anticipate the child's size, the child may have significant trouble as he or she enters the world. Another mistake the doctor could make would be to misread or fail to monitor fetal strips. As the mother is giving birth, the obstetrician and nurses could improperly use the forceps or vacuum, or even fail to perform a C-section when necessary.

Those are only a few ways that the doctor could cause harm to the child or mother and in each situation, you deserve to seek compensation. Those accidents could result in any of the following injuries:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Paralysis
  • Brain damage
  • Erb's palsy
  • Fractured collar bone
  • Klumpke's palsy
  • Brachial plexis palsy

In many unfortunate circumstances, birth injury can even result in death of the child or mother. At Law Offices of Gary E. Rosenberg, P.C., we can serve your needs and help you to obtain the compensation you and your family deserves. Whether you need a birth injury lawyer in Queens, we can help.
