Birth InjuriesThe birth of a child should be a joyous occasion. When medical professionals fail to exercise appropriate standards of care, a newborn can suffer needless injury that lasts a lifetime. If your child has suffered needless injury during the birthing process because of the carelessness of a medical professional, the law offices of Oresky & Associates, pllc., can help.
At the office of attorney Jacob Oresky, we bring more than 25 years of experience to individuals and families who have suffered the consequences of a personal injury, including an injury during the birth process. Over the last quarter of a century, we have recovered more than $250 million in settlements and verdicts for our clients. We take an aggressive approach, carefully gathering and preserving all evidence to support your claim. We’ll keep you updated at all times, so that you can make good decisions about how you want to proceed.
As the parent of an injured infant, your attention must necessarily be on the needs of your child, not on whether you should file a lawsuit. From our experience, though, early investigation into a medical malpractice event, including birth injury, can make a huge difference in the outcome of your case, as you avoid the loss of evidence or the fading memories of witnesses. In addition, there are strict time limits for filing birth injury lawsuits, so prompt action is critical to a successful resolution.
We handle birth injury claims involving:
- Failure of doctors, nurses, midwives or other medical professionals to monitor, anticipate, recognize, react and respond properly to any contingencies
- Failure to notice warning signs
- Failure to follow accepted standards of care
- Failure to properly read fetal monitoring equipment
- Failure to recognize fetal distress during labor
- Unnecessary delays in performing a Caesarean Section
- Medication errors
- Injuries caused by lack of oxygen to the child’s brain
- Forceps or suction injuries during delivery
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s Palsy
