Common Birth Injuries that an Experienced New York Birth Injury Lawyer from The Harrison Law Group Can Help With 

When healthcare professionals are negligent while caring for a mother and their unborn child, birth injuries can occur to the child before, during, or after the child is born. We at the Harrison Group P.C. have seen the devastation that these injuries can cause. Some of the most common birth injuries we’ve had to deal with include: 

  • Asphyxia – occurs when the baby is deprived of oxygen for a period of time. For example, when the baby’s umbilical cord is wrapped around the neck during delivery. Lack of oxygen can cause brain damage which will have an impact on the baby’s mental and physical abilities in the long term. 
  • Brain damage – this can be the result of infections, oxygen deprivation, jaundice, or misuse of tools during the delivery of the baby. Brain damage can have long-term consequences on the child. 
  • Brachial plexus injuries – These injuries occur as a result of damage to the nerves surrounding the spinal cord. These injuries occur when doctors do not properly dislodge the baby’s shoulders when they get stuck behind the mother’s pelvis during delivery. The injury can result in the child being unable to move their fingers, hands, or arms. 
  • Broken bones – these injuries occur when medical professionals use delivery tools improperly. The baby’s bones, which are fragile at the time of delivery, may break as a result of the use of vacuums or forceps to forcefully pull the child out during delivery. 
  • Spinal cord injuries – spinal cord injuries can be caused as a result of undiagnosed spina bifida. They can also result from physical injuries during delivery as a result of misuse of delivery instruments for example. Spinal cord injuries can result in limited mobility, chronic pain, and paralysis. 
  • Cerebral palsy – is a condition that results from injuries to the brain. It can affect the child’s mobility, posture, and balance. It is often the result of injuries during birth.

Frequently Asked Questions about Birth Injuries in New York

How long do I have to file a birth injury claim?

Birth injuries are devastating especially when they occur as a result of the negligence of the same healthcare professionals that were supposed to protect you and your child. However, it is important to get started on seeking justice for birth injuries as soon as possible. According to New York Medical Malpractice Laws & Statute of Limitations, you only have two and a half years from the date of the injury in which to file a lawsuit on behalf of your injured child. If your child dies as a result of the birth injuries, then you will only have two years from the date of the death of your child to file a claim for your loss. You should therefore seek the services of an experienced New York birth injury lawyer to get the process started.

Can a Child that Suffered Birth Injuries file a Birth Injury Lawsuit?

Yes. A child that was the victim of birth injuries that resulted from the negligence of healthcare professionals or a healthcare institution can file a birth injury lawsuit of their own. They, however, can only do this when they have become an adult. In this situation, the statute of limitations will be postponed to the time that the child becomes an adult. That means that the statute of limitations to file the birth injury lawsuit will begin on the 18th birthday of the child.

However, you don’t have to wait that long to start the process. You and your child can consult with an attorney from the Harrison Law Group for guidance. Our attorneys will provide you with the guidance you need to make an informed decision. If you choose our firm to represent you and your child, we will get started on investigating the claim and building a strong case on your child’s behalf. We’ll fight to ensure that your child receives the compensation they deserve for their injuries.

What is Personal Injury?

If you’re injured as a result of a negligent third party, then you may be entitled to compensation as a result of the damages you’ve experienced, whether directly through the responsible party, or their insurance company. An experienced New York personal injury lawyer will specialize in tort law and focus on winning economic and non-economic damages for their clients, whether or not the target is a multi-million dollar award.

Personal injuries are classified as injuries to the body, mind, and emotions of an individual. When you suffer an injury because of another party, you experience turmoil and your quality of life will change. Some victims experience loss of enjoyment and even depression.

It’s important to speak with mindful attorneys who have the wisdom to handle your case effectively. Personal injury suits are filed against individuals or entities that cause harm due to recklessness, negligence, misconduct, or liability.

What types of compensation can be received in a personal injury case?

There are several types of compensable damages that can be received including money for lost wages and career change, property damage compensation, health aids, and home rehabilitation to accommodate for the injuries sustained.
