Birth Injury Attorney in Manhattan
Every year, at least 30,000 babies in the United States are born with some form of a birth injury. These injuries range from cerebral palsy, brachial plexus, fractures, and nerve damage to even more serious cases, such as spinal cord injuries.
While some of these injuries are irreversible, the best thing you can do for your loved one is ensure that they get the care and support they need to live a normal life. That's one of the things a Manhattan birth injury lawyer from our team can help you fight for.
At Morgan and Morgan, we've handled such cases before and won, most notably a $38 million verdict for a mother whose child suffered brain damage because doctors took too long to perform a C-section on the mother during the birth process.
So, when you contact us for a free case evaluation, rest assured that we've traveled this road before and know the ins and outs of birth injury claims.

What Damages Can I Claim in a Birth Injury Case?
In a birth injury case, you can typically claim damages that may include medical expenses, ongoing medical care, rehabilitation costs, pain and suffering, loss of future earning capacity, and any other related expenses or losses incurred due to the birth injury. The specific damages you can claim may vary based on the circumstances and severity of the injury, and that's one of the things we can help you figure out if you have a viable claim.
Who Can Be Liable for a Birth Injury?
Liability can fall on multiple parties, including but not limited to healthcare providers such as doctors, nurses, and hospitals. Pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers might also bear a certain degree of responsibility for the birth injury. That said, the unique circumstances of your case will ultimately decide who should be liable.
The Other Party Wants To Settle My Birth Injury Claim. Should I Still Hire a Lawyer?
Yes, it's usually advisable to hire not just any lawyer but a skilled negotiator, even if the other party is willing to settle your birth injury claim. The right lawyer can help ensure that the settlement offer is fair and adequate to cover your present and future needs, including medical expenses, long-term care needs, tuition, and other related costs.
What if I Cannot Prove That the Injury Happened Due to Negligence?
Negligence is a crucial element in such cases, and without clear evidence to support your claim, it may be difficult to establish liability. That said, an experienced attorney from our team can help review the facts of your case and establish whether the other party deviated from the acceptable standards of care and the kind of evidence required to prove this element. If you have a viable claim, we can use our resources to help you gather the evidence you need to establish liability.
