Birth Injury Lawyers in the Bronx, New York
Is your baby suffering from Erb’s palsy, cerebral palsy, periventricular leukomalacia or other birth injuries caused by medical negligence?
We are a family law firm that cares about the other families in our New York community. As such, we understand there is nothing more devastating than when an innocent newborn suffers harm. It has been estimated that as many as six in 1,000 infants are injured during birth. The reasons vary, but if your baby was harmed, the only thing that matters is ensuring your child receives the lifelong care and support needed to give them the highest quality of life possible. 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:
- Medical expenses
- Physical therapy
- Loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of the enjoyment of life
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. Attorneys James Newman and Kyle Newman work 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.
New York’s Medical Indemnity Fund for Neurologically Impaired Newborns
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 birth injury 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.
