There is nothing more devastating to you as a parent than to have your baby suffer a serious injury at birth. Your grief is compounded if the injury could have been prevented. Birth injury lawsuits are about more than obtaining compensation for the family. They are about holding medical professionals accountable.
At Lynch, Traub, Keefe & Errante, P.C. in New Haven, Connecticut, our lawyers represent families in cases of medical malpractice. Our representation is backed by more than 60 years of experience. We have been repeatedly recognized as one of “The Best Law Firms” and several of our lawyers have been listed in the publication “The Best Lawyers in America.”
Was The Birth Injury Preventable?
Not all birth injuries are the result of medical malpractice. In some cases, doctors and nurses did everything they were supposed to do and the baby is born with a severe injury or dies. However, if the doctor failed to meet the standard of care during labor and delivery, and your baby was injured as a result, you have the right to seek compensation.
The following are examples of injuries that may be the result of failure of the doctor and delivery staff to meet the standard of care:
- Perinatal asphyxia
- Cranial nerve injury
- Erb’s palsy
- Cerebral palsy injuries
Our lawyers will work with medical experts to review hospital records and determine if the injury was the result or an error or negligence by the doctor or delivery staff. Then we will seek the financial support you will need to provide your child with the best possible care and services.
