Birth Injuries and Medical Malpractice
At Rheingold, Valet, Rheingold, McCartney & Giuffra LLP, we represent people in a wide range of medical negligence claims, including those involving birth injuries. Birth injuries can result in a wide range of physical and mental impairments, including cerebral palsy and Erb's palsy, as well as cause developmental delays.
Some birth injuries are unavoidable and are not the result of negligence. Some, however, do result from obstetrical malpractice or negligence on the part of other medical professionals.
Many factors can contribute to birth injuries, including:
- Failure to properly monitor the baby's condition
- Misuse of forceps and other medical instruments
- Failure to order a cesarean section when necessary
- Inappropriate administration of medication
- Circumcision errors
- Failure to identify signs of oxygen deprivation
Our lawyers provide skilled, compassionate representation to families that are suffering as a result of birth injuries and other instances of medical malpractice. We give every client personal, attentive service and handle every case with the utmost care and precision.
