Critical errors by doctors, obstetrical nurses and hospital staff can cause serious or fatal injuries to babies and mothers. When such errors occur, families are left devastated, often wondering what went wrong, and desperately seeking answers. Unfortunately, getting straight answers from doctors is never easy.
Medical professionals are very weary of lawsuits and rarely own up to their mistakes. The insurance companies are focused on their financial interests and make every effort to deny or minimize their liability. At Sullivan Papain Block McGrath & Cannavo P.C., we are committed to helping people who have been injured and families who have lost a loved one as a result of medical negligence. Our skilled medical malpractice lawyers have experience handling birth injury claims. We represent clients throughout New York and New Jersey.
The most common type of medical negligence in birth injury claims is a failure to properly respond to signs of fetal distress. As a result, babies are often deprived of oxygen, which can cause brain damage, including cerebral palsy. Another common condition that results from medical errors in the birth and delivery process is Erb’s palsy, a type of nerve damage that may cause temporary or permanent paralysis of an infant’s arm.

We are pleased to offer a free consultation and case evaluation to answer your questions and help you determine if you may have a basis to obtain compensation.
