Pregnancy is a life-changing event that is typically full of anticipation and emotions. It should be a special time for you and your family, but when medical negligence leads to birth injuries, the results can be devastating. If you and your family have experienced complications during pregnancy or childbirth, contact a birth injury attorney at Sullivan Papain Block McGrath Coffinas & Cannavo, P.C. for a free case evaluation. Birth injuries can lead to severe impairment, including long-term disabilities and sometimes death. We know how difficult these cases can be, and our experienced attorneys can help.
Pregnancies typically come with months of doctor’s appointments, testing, and monitoring to make sure expecting mothers and their babies are in good health. Medical negligence can result in injuries at any point during pregnancy, childbirth, and postnatal follow up care. Injuries are commonly caused by an undiagnosed condition during pregnancy, failure to monitor the baby’s health, failure to monitor the mother’s health, medical errors made during delivery, infections or other post-birth illnesses. It can be difficult to prove that medical complications were caused by negligence, but a Long Island medical malpractice attorney can properly investigate the claim.
You do not have to know the cause or facts that led to the birth injuries in your case. If you suspect that medical negligence may have played a role, an experienced birth injury attorney will help by investigating the facts and circumstances related to the injuries sustained. During the investigation, attorneys may review medical records, interview witnesses, and retain medical experts for consultation when necessary.
As mentioned above, birth injuries are often severe, and sometimes they result in permanent disabilities. These injuries frequently require lifelong medical care, which then results in lifelong medical expenses. Birth injuries may cause significant pain and suffering and other types of physical and financial losses. If medical malpractice led to injuries in your case, securing financial compensation may be critical to ensure that you can afford all necessary medical care.
