Clients Trust Us with Their Malpractice Cases
The staff here is wonderful from the front office staff to the back staff Gary is a wonderful lawyer very knowledgeable and upfront. Guy is also another lawyer there / doctor which is pretty awesome to have a doctor and a lawyer on a case, especially a case that involves medical malpractice. They are all professional and welcoming which is great because walking into an law office can be pretty intimidating.
These are the best lawyers in Brooklyn. I was in really bad shape and had no where to turn to. The staff is so friendly and supportive. I had a really great result with my case and would recommend them to anyone who needs a malpractice attorney.
Medical Errors Are Far Too Common
According to a study by John Hopkins Medicine, medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the United States, accounting for more than 250,000 deaths per year.
By hiring a birth injury attorney who can investigate and litigate your case, you can play an active role in increasing the safety and care standards of other patients, protecting them from becoming victims.
Birth Defect vs. Birth Injury
Birth defects and birth injuries have a few key differences:
- While birth defects are present in infants before they are born, injuries occur during the birthing process and are a direct result of action or inaction on the part of the medical team involved in the birth
- While birth defects are unavoidable, some birth injuries are preventable
- Birth injuries are directly linked to medical malpractice, including anesthesia error or delayed or mistaken diagnoses
While some birth injuries are a result of unforeseen and unpreventable complications, others can occur as a result of incorrect delivery, misuse of delivery tools, or delayed diagnosis of complications such as fetal distress. When negligence is involved in any form, it is in the family's best interest to contact a personal injury lawyer.
In order to pursue a birth injury lawsuit, a family will have to prove that the physician or medical staff breached their "duty of care," that their negligence directly caused the child's injury, and that the child's injury has led to physical and emotional losses. While this can be difficult to prove on your own, our personal injury lawyers have the resources to build a compelling case.
Although the most severe birth injury conditions are incurable, a variety of treatments and support systems are available to help manage your child’s care. Our personal injury lawyers have built a network of trusted medical professionals, and we can help your child get the care they need while we focus on your case.
