We Hold Negligent Medical Staff Responsible
Sometimes the negligence of a medical professional can result in irreparable physical damage to your newborn infant. Often, signs of the damage will not be evident until the child is older.

Our birth injury attorneys at the firm of Bendit Weinstock know how difficult and emotionally trying it can be to deal with the repercussions of injuries caused by neglectful medical staff. We make it our business to help families like yours get the compensation they deserve to cover current and future medical expenses.

Birth Injuries Can Be Minor or Major
Many terrible things can happen when doctors and nurses are not doing their job correctly. During the labor and delivery process, it is particularly important to properly evaluate and treat the mother and infant. When this does not occur, injuries can result. The infant can be born with minor injuries such as small cuts and facial and head bruising. Injuries resulting from mistakes made by medical staff can also be more critical, including nerve damage and brain damage from oxygen deprivation.
Mistakes made by medical professionals during labor and delivery can include:
- Oxygen deprivation during delivery
- Not realizing the baby is distressed
- Not performing a C-section in a timely manner
- Incorrectly assuming the size the baby
- Using too much force during delivery
