You know that your child has been injured during birth. You may even know that your doctor or hospital was the cause of your baby's New York birth injury. However, as a layperson you are not exactly sure what went wrong or what to do about it. There was no obvious error that you witnessed during pregnancy, labor or delivery, so can you recover damages for your child's injury without a smoking gun?

It is possible to recover damages for a birth injury in New York without a smoking gun. Many times it will require the assistance of a skilled New York birth injury attorney. Your New York birth accident lawyer will review all of the facts of your case and determine what happened to cause your child's injuries.

A recent study by CRICO Strategies found that obstetrics malpractice is rarely the result of one incident or one single act or failure to act by one person.* Instead, the majority of obstetrics malpractice injuries occur because of a series of mistakes made by a team of medical professionals over the course of a pregnancy, labor and/or delivery. Thus, in order to understand how the malpractice occurred it is important to understand the critical decision points in a patient's care.

If your child has suffered a birth injury after a New York birth and you believe that it may have been caused by medical malpractice, we encourage you to contact a New York birth accident attorney today at 1-800-PAGAN-911 to discuss your rights.
