There are many people attending the hospital birth of your child. In addition to you, your spouse, and whomever else you decide to let into the labor or delivery room, there are many medical professionals there to help you. For example, during the course of your labor and delivery you may be treated or monitored by several nurses, an anesthesiologist, obstetrician, and a pediatrician.

New York birth injuries caused by medical negligence are often a result of a doctor's mistake - but not always. A nurse could also be responsible for a child's birth injury. For example:
  • A nurse is often assigned to monitor mothers in labor. If a nurse failed to check on you or failed to act on something that she monitored during your labor then the nurse may have committed medical negligence.
  • A nurse may fail to carry out a doctor's order. If the nurse failed to carry out a doctor's order then the nurse may have failed to exercise reasonable care in your treatment.
  • A nurse may make a mistake during delivery that causes your child an injury.

If your child has suffered a birth injury due to a nurse's medical malpractice then you have the right to file a New York birth injury lawsuit on behalf of your baby. The potential damages that you may recover can be significant and can impact your child's future.
