The birth injury attorneys at the Bronx law firm of James Newman, P.C. are dedicated to helping babies and their parents get monetary compensation to provide for the child’s present and future needs, including:
Your baby may have suffered an injury because of negligence or error that occurred during or after the birth – or even because of prenatal negligence. Birth injuries can range from broken bones to serious conditions including Erb’s palsy (brachial plexus), Klempke’s palsy, cerebral palsy, periventricular leukomalacia and facial paralysis. Bronx medical malpractice lawyer James Newman works with experts in medicine, vocational and physical therapy, psychiatrists and others who can help determine the full value of your birth injury medical malpractice case. We will not allow the insurance company to give you less than everything that you and your child are entitled to receive.
In 2011, the Medical Indemnity Fund for Neurologically Impaired Newborns was established by the New York state legislature. If medical negligence is the reason for your newborn’s birth injury, you may be eligible if Medicaid covers you. The fund is intended to cover the cost of current and future medical expenses, medications, therapy and necessary home and vehicle modifications.
You still have the right to sue, and it may be in your best interest to work with an experienced Bronx medical malpractice lawyer. At the law firm of James Newman, P.C., we help you file your lawsuit and represent you through the process. Once resolved, we help you recover compensation available from the Medical Indemnity Fund.
