Medical Malpractice Attorney serving New York & New Jersey

Some of the most tragic of legal cases we see as attorneys concern birth injuries resulting from medical malpractice. Failure to properly deliver the child or take timely medical actions can result in the child suffering from cerebral palsy or Erb's palsy. Both of these syndromes are permanent in nature and can result in the child requiring a lifetime of care.
Due to his hands-on experience, attorney Timothy M. O'Donovan has a working knowledge of New York's medical malpractice law and how birth injuries cases are tried in our state. He understands how these types of medical mistakes occur and how to prove medical negligence up at trial.

The Devastating Nature of Birth Injuries

Erb's palsy and cerebral palsy commonly come about due to medical errors involving the improper use of forceps, the failure to perform a cesarean section in a timely manner, the failure to monitor the child's heart rate or breathing during the birth process, or the improper use of anesthesia.
While this all sounds very clinical, the injuries to the child are extremely real. The injuries the child suffered will impact every aspect of the child's life, and the child's parents will have to figure out how that child can then receive a lifetime of medical care and services. These types of birth injuries involve much more than simple medical care. It can mean assisting the child with activities that much of us take for granted such as eating, sleeping, bathing and moving from one location to another. The emotional toll it takes upon parents, brothers and sisters is also tremendous.
