Birth Injury, Newborn Babies and Infants

New York Birth Injury Attorney

Having a baby is probably the most important event that can happen. The care of you and your newborn are put in the hands of obstetricians, midwifes, and prenatal clinics. Unfortunately when mistakes and negligence occur, the effects are devastating. This often has tragic effects upon the victims and their families.

Alan Chorne has been representing families, mothers and fathers and damaged children for decades, holding doctors, hospitals, obstetricians, and midwifes responsible for their mistakes. Unfortunately, throughout NYC, Manhattan, The Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and the surrounding counties mistakes happen all too often. Whether it is a private doctor, clinic, NYCH&H hospital or private hospital, you have rights if injuries occur.

More common errors often occur due to the misreading the fetal monitor strips, failure to recognize a large baby, failure to do a caesarean section. Other mistakes include using excessive force during the delivery or failing to deliver twins and multiple births properly. At times, high risk pregnancies including; diabetes, preeclyampsia or a breach are mishandled. The mishandling of the birth of your child puts that baby at risk for serious injuries and lifelong disabilities.

When a newborn suffers a birth injury or damage including cerebral palsy (CP), erbs palsy, brachial plexus injury and fractures, Klumpke’s palsy, brain damage or mental retardation, you need a lawyer with the experience to protect all of you rights and to protect your child for a lifetime.

The costs of lifetime care, therapy, schooling and even residential placement can run into the millions of dollars. You need an attorney who will prove all of the losses, physical, mental and economic.

Whether the doctors and nurses failed to recognize fetal distress, late decelerations, late of beat to beat variability, failed to perform a c-section, failed to observe and monitor the labor or fetal heart beat, failed to use forceps or a vacuum extraction properly, or failed to recognize a lack of oxygen, hypoxia, anoxia or other symptoms of fetal distress, you need to call an attorney with decades of experience.
