If your child has suffered a birth injury then you understandably want to focus on the future and not on what went wrong. However, understanding what went wrong is essential to safeguarding your child's future. Understanding what went wrong may enable your family to recover the damages that you need to provide for your child from birth through adulthood.

There are many specific things that could have gone wrong and caused your child's injury. While the details of the injury may vary, our experienced New York birth injury lawyers have found that injuries are often caused by:
  • The Failure to Diagnose. If a condition is misdiagnosed during pregnancy or childbirth then your doctor may not be able to take the proper precautions to prevent an injury.
  • The Failure to Treat. If a condition, or problem, is correctly diagnosed then your doctor must act with reasonable care in treating you. The failure to order a C-section, induce labor, or take other precautions to protect the baby may lead to an injury.
  • The Failure to Use Equipment with Reasonable Care. Obstetrical equipment such as forceps and vacuums require doctors to use reasonable care in order to prevent serious injury.
In order to be successful in a birth injury case, your New York City birth injury attorney must prove what went wrong and that the failure to exercise reasonable care caused your child's injury. For more information about what might have gone wrong in your child's case and how it might be important to your family's recovery, please contact a New York birth injury lawyer at 1-800-PAGAN-911 or via our online contact form.
