Our New York Birth Injury Attorneys: Your Experienced, Compassionate Advocates

A birth injury or death of an infant profoundly impacts any family. The loss of or harm to a child changes the way people live forever. When medical negligence is found to have caused the harm, the feelings of sadness and anger can be overwhelming. Our New York birth injury attorneys have handled these cases for decades. We are well-known for our sensitive and compassionate work with the families who have experienced these kinds of tragedies.

Compensation and Closure for Families

Our attorneys can help families determine whether negligence has occurred by an OB-GYN or other medical professional. If it is likely that the hospital or health care provider is at fault, we can bring a lawsuit to obtain proper compensation. That compensation can cover the cost of future medical care and account for pain and suffering and other losses and damages. And it can help the family members begin to find closure on a painful chapter in their lives.

At the Jacob Fuchsberg Law Firm, we help clients address:

  • Problems associated with cerebral palsy, brain injuries, Erb's palsy and brachial plexus trauma
  • Problems associated with premature birth, including retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), patent ductus arteriosis (PDA) and congenital conditions such as gastroschisis
  • Questions about fetal heart rate monitoring
  • The timing of emergency C-sections
  • Problems associated with a vaginal birth after C-section (VBAC)
  • OB-GYN malpractice
  • Access to the New York State Medical Indemnity Fund, which is money set aside by the state of New York for the future cost of care for injured infants

We cannot promise a particular result, but we can promise that we will listen to and understand all of the issues regarding your loved one's medical care — and help you make choices that are in your family's best interest.
