Seek the Aid of New York Birth Injury Lawyers in Case of Birth Injury

“On a national level, approximately three incidents of birth injuries occur every hour, equating to more than 2,300 per month,” and these injuries can happen during labor and delivery and right after. A birth injury is defined by as a “health problem that an infant is born with that is, in most cases, completely preventable.” Dedicated New York birth injury lawyers act as advocates for families who have suffered due to these birth injuries.

One of the most common birth injuries is brachial plexus palsy, which entails nerve damage from the base of the neck to the upper arms caused by overt force while handling forceps or other instruments during the birth process. Also, failure to recognize the baby’s distress can lead to hypoxia or oxygen deprivation. Lack of oxygen may lead to seizures, brain trauma, or cerebral palsy.
