Are All Birth Injuries a Result of New York Medical Malpractice?


A: No, not all New York and New Jersey birth injuries are a result of medical malpractice. However, in many cases you will not know if your child's injury was caused by malpractice until you start reviewing exactly what happened during your pregnancy and childbirth. Your baby's birth injury may be the result of medical malpractice if the doctor or hospital breached the duty of care to you and your child by failing to exercise reasonable care with regard to your treatment during pregnancy or childbirth and if that breach of the duty of care caused your child's injury.
