New Jersey Birth Injury Lawyers
Labor and Delivery Negligence Attorneys with Offices in North Jersey
The birth of your child can mark one of the most miraculous and beautiful moments of your life. However, these awe-inspiring milestones can turn tragic, and even fatal, for mother and child if the medical professionals tasked with caring for you during this time fail to provide the necessary treatment. Deliveries can present a multitude of problems, requiring extensive monitoring, frequent evaluation, and at times, in-the-moment judgement calls to protect you and your baby as he or she enters the world. Due to the highly sensitive and potentially damaging results of an error during this process, physicians, nurses, and other health professionals simply cannot afford to make mistakes, or worse, to stop paying attention.
At Fronzuto Law Group, our highly skilled New Jersey birth injury attorneys represent both mothers and infants who have suffered injuries during and immediately after child birth. With extensive experience representing hundreds of families in pediatric malpractice and birth injury cases and millions of dollars recovered in damages, our knowledgeable team handles cases ranging from cesarean section errors to children who suffer from cerebral palsy.
