What Kind of Attorney Should I Hire After My Child's New York Birth Injury?


A: Technically, any attorney who is admitted to the bar in New York can represent you in a New York birth injury case. However, you raise an important question that deserves a more detailed answer.

While any lawyer can technically represent you, there are advantages to hiring a New York birth injury lawyer if your child has been hurt because of an error committed during pregnancy, labor or delivery. Specifically, a New York birth injury attorney has experience:

  • Getting to know families and their fears and struggles after a birth injury.
  • Understanding the medical aspects of a birth injury case.
  • Negotiating with insurance companies for fair settlements.
  • Presenting complicated evidence to juries.

You would not trust your child's future to just anyone. You are doing your best to get your child the medical care that he or she needs to make the maximum possible recovery. Your child also deserves qualified legal counsel who will fight for a fair and just potential recovery on his or her behalf.
