Passaic County NJ Infant Brain And Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys
Representing Victims of Medical Malpractice Across New Jersey
The birth of your child is miraculous–a moment in which it seems that time stands still as a treasured human is ushered into the world. However, the circumstances that precede this moment can quickly turn tragic, if the medical professionals who are responsible for ensuring your safe delivery fail to adapt to the situations that they may encounter along the way. Due to the unpredictable nature of labor and delivery, it is essential for health professionals to continuously assess and proactively address potential complications. Failure to do so can result in devastating consequences, particularly for your child’s brain if he or she is deprived of oxygen or otherwise put at risk during the delivery process. Often, medical negligence can lead to permanent brain damage and disability which requires long-term treatment and accommodations, altering your life and your child’s life forever. In order to hold negligent healthcare providers responsible, and to ensure that your child is adequately prepared for his or her future needs, you can use the law to ensure that your voice is heard.

Bringing Your Child’s Brain or Spinal Cord Injury Lawsuit in New Jersey
When babies are improperly delivered or their delivery is inappropriately delayed, the results can be dangerous, if not deadly. From a medical perspective, brain cells are susceptible to damage and/or complete destruction when deprived of oxygen. Depending on the extent to which the brain is damaged, a child can be faced with permanent neurological impairment, nerve damage, decreased muscle control, and organ malfunction. Our seasoned attorneys have assisted clients with malpractice-related brain and spinal cord cases involving:
- Delay in performing cesarean section
- Delivery errors that caused the baby to remain in the birth canal for too long
- Improper use of vacuum extraction or forceps
- Failure to recognize and treat fetal distress
- Failure to diagnose and treat medical conditions in the mother during prenatal care
- Epidural abscess and cord compression
- Surgical error compromising the spinal cord or brain
- Failure to diagnose infection
- Respiratory distress syndrome
Upon entering your case, we will work with you to develop a comprehensive assessment of your child’s long-term needs, including special education and tutoring, at-home accommodations, physical, occupational, and speech therapies, and any of the other additions and alterations that may assist them with living their best life. We will then seek maximum damages to provide for you and your family as we move forward together.
