New York City Birth Injury Attorneys

New York City Birth Injury Attorneys

Prenatal and postnatal care injuries can be devastating to your baby’s development and survival. Injuries might not be immediately noticeable, but if you suspect negligence by your obstetrician, any member of the delivery team or other medical professionals caring for you and your baby prior to, during or following birth, you should speak with an experienced medical malpractice attorney right away.

As with all medical malpractice claims, there are statutes of limitations for birth injury claims, after which you may no longer seek compensation for losses and damages.

Proving negligence or malpractice is not easy, but our attorneys are used to challenging cases. We examine your medical history, prenatal care and postnatal care very closely along with the help of medical experts who can testify to the misdiagnosis, mismanagement or poor standard of care that led to a preventable birth defect.


We have more than 85 years of combined experience pursuing injury claims in New York. We handle birth injury cases that occur in private, state and city hospitals as well as those that occur during home births, including:

  • Injuries to the mother
  • Negligent prenatal or postnatal care
    • Misdiagnosed infection
    • Medication errors
    • Failure to diagnose birth defects
    • Placenta issues
    • Delayed diagnosis of preeclampsia
  • Delay in ordering cesarean section (C-section)
  • Lack of oxygen to the fetal brain during birth (hypoxia or anoxia)
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Hospital-acquired infections such as Group B strep

Our birth injury lawyers are results-oriented, but you and your family’s best interests come first. We keep you informed as we work to discover what went wrong, why the error occurred and how it could have been prevented. We help you find options to cope with loss and injury as the legal process progresses, and we ensure that your rights are protected.

Our office is conveniently located in Midtown Manhattan, and we are responsive to your concerns. We will help you understand the legal process and have a straightforward discussion about your options.
