      What is a Birth Injury?

      Birth injuries refer to any harm that is sustained by an infant during the labor and delivery process. In some cases, a child’s birth injury is the result of medical malpractice or negligence. If a child sustains an injury because of a medical provider’s negligence, they might be entitled to compensation. It is important to retain an attorney well-versed in birth injury claims to determine whether you have a valid claim for damages.

      The chance of a birth injury is usually the last thing on a parent’s mind as they enter the hospital. Most soon-to-be parents are overwhelmed with the immense joy that the expected birth of their child brings. In far too many cases, however, this joy can turn into unimaginable pain. Birth injury claims are prevalent throughout the country, including in New York.

      Common Causes of Birth Injury

      Birth injuries can be caused by any number of contributing factors. Regardless of the suspected cause of your child’s injury, you should always have their case reviewed by an experienced attorney. A White Plains birth injury lawyer can help determine who should be held liable for the harm your baby suffered and the damages you should seek to recover.

      Common causes of birth injuries resulting in liability:

      • Failure to order a cesarean section (delayed c-section)
      • Failure to monitor for fetal distress
      • Improper use of forceps or vacuum
      • Failure to diagnose and treat maternal infections
      • Misdiagnosis leading to premature delivery
      • Inadequate prenatal monitoring and testing
      • Delayed birth (prolonged labor)

      It is estimated that thousands of children suffer unnecessary trauma at birth each year. Despite advances in medical technology, countless babies are still seriously injured during labor and delivery.

      If your child suffered preventable harm during birth, you might be entitled to compensation to help pay for medical bills and future treatments. Contact our White Plains birth injury lawyers today to discuss your rights.

      Types of Birth Injuries

      Labor and delivery is an area of medicine that requires specialized knowledge. Because things can quickly change, obstetricians and other staff must be adequately trained. Insufficient training and staffing can lead to devastating injuries and lifelong health problems.

      Leading types of birth injuries:

      • Cerebral palsy
      • Brachial plexus injuries
      • Erb’s palsy
      • Klumpke’s palsy
      • Caput succedaneum
      • Cephalohematoma
      • Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE)
      • Intracranial hemorrhage
      • Perinatal asphyxia
      • Facial and skull fractures
      • Shoulder dystocia

      Any type of birth injury should be reviewed by an attorney as early as possible to determine whether you should seek compensation. Birth injuries can result in both short and long-term health problems. Depending on the situation, a birth injury may cause paralysis, developmental delays, brain damage, disfigurement, or may prove fatal.

      What to Do If You Suspect Your Child Was Injured at Birth

      If you suspect that your child was injured at birth, you need to consult with a birth injury lawyer immediately. You might be entitled to financial recovery for your economic and non-economic losses. Damages in a birth injury claim may provide compensation for your child’s medical bills, future care and treatment, pain and suffering, disfigurement, and more.

      Be sure to keep all medical records and provide your attorney with a detailed account of what happened before, during, and after the delivery. The sooner you contact an attorney, the better chance you have at recovering a favorable settlement or verdict for your child. You only have a limited amount of time to file a claim based on birth injury in Westchester County, NY, so it is in your best interest to act quickly.

      Hi Mr.John LeifertI just wanted to shoot you a quick note to thank you again for your services. My car accident, I was incredibly stressed the full dealing with insurance companies and sorting out what was my next step towards my injuries. Especially since it was my first time involved in any type of traffic accident, I was so lost and confused!Luckily I discovered your service at the perfect timing. You were able to make sense of the multiple demand letter requests, photo evidence, and medical documents that kept my case in track. You always make sure to follow up with me. I'm so happy we were able to receive a successful outcome. Good luck to you and your associates and thank you again.Miguel Perez

      When I needed to take on a leading US automaker, I turned to the White Plains law firm of Denlea & Carton and their commercial litigation team. They filed an action in Federal Court and after three years of hard fought litigation, they helped me to obtain a great result ! Not only for myself, but for consumers around the country. Jeff, Jim and everyone at the firm were superb. They communicated with me regularly, and ensured that I understood everything that was happening. I couldn’t be happier about my representation. If you need a firm that gets great results, and isn’t afraid to go up against large corporations, look no further than Denlea & Carton!

      I researched quite a few firms before deciding on Denlea & Carton, and I couldn’t be happier that I did. They surpassed my expectations in every respect. They were kind, patient, and extremely knowledgeable. They treated my case as if it was their own, and never backed down from the fight with the defendant until they obtained an incredible result for me. There is a difference between law firms, and I’m glad I took the time to realize it. I would recommend Jim and Jeff (and everyone else who helped me) without hesitation. They’re terrific!
