Birth Injury

The pain and sorrow you are feeling if your child was seriously injured at birth may be impossible to express. If you believe that your child's injuries should have been prevented through timely, proper action by a doctor or other hospital personnel, please reach out to our lawyers at Meagher & Meagher in White Plains, New York.

All medical malpractice lawsuits are challenging to prove. They are aggressively defended by medical institutions and their insurers. Led by Christopher B. Meagher, our firm has measured up to this challenge on numerous occasions, including one birth injury case in which a Westchester County jury awarded our clients, the family of a child disabled during labor and delivery, $60.9 million in damages.

Extensive, Successful Experience Pursuing Infant Brain Injury Claims

Our medical malpractice attorneys' strengths and capabilities cover the spectrum of prenatal and delivery room negligence. We are well-prepared to evaluate your potential case arising from:

  • Oxygen deprivation during labor and delivery that caused your infant child's cerebral palsy or other permanent brain injury
  • Unnecessary, excessive or improper use of forceps or vacuum extraction, which is the most common cause of brachial plexus injuries and Erb's palsy

Was a C-section necessary but not ordered in time? Did inadequate fetal monitoring or some other crucial error cause your infant child's permanent, disabling injuries? We have established close working relationships with physicians qualified to analyze all medical records and assess whether actionable medical malpractice occurred. If we determine that you have a valid birth injury case, we will build that case for trial and settle only if you choose to accept a reasonable offer that comes forward.
