Newborn jaundice is so common and easily treatable. How did my baby end up with brain damage, and what do I do now?


A: Brain damage resulting from newborn jaundice is rare if a baby receives proper medical treatment, but it is a real risk if jaundice goes untreated. If your child has suffered brain damage as a result of newborn jaundice then it is possible that your child did not get the proper medical treatment.

Brain damage caused by medical malpractice may occur if jaundice was undiagnosed or untreated. If this was the case for your child, a New York birth injury lawyer may be able to help you recover damages on behalf of your child. Damages can include compensation for past and future medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, out of pocket expenses, lost income and pain and suffering.

You can't go back and undo the mistake of a New York doctor, but you can take the steps to protect your child's future by contacting a New York birth injury attorney at 1-800-PAGAN-911.
