The birth of a child ought to bring joy, fulfillment, and tremendous excitement to the parents. It ought to mark the beginning of a young individual's life with hope and promise. Unfortunately, the negligence of treating physicians and other medical personnel can create fear, doubt, and tragedy for families entrusting them with their newborn's future.
If your child suffers an injury during birth, you need an adept attorney to explore your legal options. Roughly 7 out of every 1,000 newborns suffer birth injuries including Cerebral Palsy and Erb's Palsy. These occur due to numerous factors, from maternal drug use to physiological complications. However, they can also occur as a result of negligence, in which case you may have a legal claim. Anthony Macri will assess the circumstances of your case and advise you on the best path.
All physicians must meet a certain minimum standard of care defined by a reasonable physician practicing under similar conditions and circumstances in that medical field. A physician's failure to detect, monitor or to diagnose certain problems during birth can be grounds for medical malpractice. A similar standard applies to nurses, interns, residents and other staff under the supervision of a treating physician during your care, as well as hospitals and other medical facilities. These latter institutions are responsible for the hiring, training, and supervision of those under their employment in any capacity. In dealing with the birth of a child, this standard of care is set high, and failures to meet it are taken as seriously under the law as birth injuries themselves.
