The birth of a child should be one of the most joyous occasions for a family. Unfortunately, injury during the pregnancy or when a child is being delivered can occur. The injuries, known as birth injuries, can be a family’s worst nightmare. Harm to a child and the financial hardships, which typically occur after a child suffers a birth injury, can be overwhelming. A family can be suddenly faced with mounting medical bills, the costs of future medical treatments and rehabilitations, all of which are extremely costly, but most importantly, vital to a child’s future care and wellbeing. Our New Jersey birth injury and medical malpractice attorneys fight for the victims of birth injuries. Our lawyers strive to help the victims of birth injuries who have been injured through no fault of their own.

All medical professionals who take part in the birth of a child are required to follow certain treatment protocols and act according to the generally accepted standards of medical care. Failure to properly monitor and react to symptoms, vital signs, or other events that occur during childbirth is a failure to follow the generally accepted medical standards. If an individual does not follow the generally accepted medical standards, they may be held liable for any harm to the child or mother that may result.
