Your Pennsylvania and New Jersey Birth Injury Lawyer

We realize that most cases involving birth defects and developmental impairments are not caused by medical or nursing mistakes. However, in those exceptional cases when an infant or mother has been traumatically injured due to departures in pregnancy and delivery protocols, then we will aggressively investigate and litigate the claim on your behalf.

Obstetric malpractice may include failing to properly monitor the baby during prenatal care or during delivery, errors in performing or interpreting ultrasounds, cord blood sampling, amniocentesis, or genetic screening, failing to communicate changes in status to the attending physician, delays in performing a c-section, anesthesia or epidural complications, maternal blood loss and hemorrhage, as well as many other scenarios that can lead to a lack of oxygen or a traumatic delivery leading to death, shoulder dysplasia, cerebral palsy, Erb's palsy, also referred to as a brachial plexus injury, or paralysis, or other neurological injuries causing your child to have physical or developmental deficits.

In addition to pursuing a civil lawsuit, we will assist you with securing benefits from government agencies, arranging for special education, assisting you with finding appropriate physical and developmental therapists, and structuring any recovery obtained to pay for your child's long-term medical, educational and personal need expenses.
