New York Birth Injury Lawyer Fights for Full Compensation
Tenacious advocate helps families in the Rochester area secure verdicts and settlements
A birth injury turns a joyous event into an occasion overshadowed by fear and worry. If your baby has been injured because a doctor, nurse or hospital failed to adhere to acceptable standards of care, you have the right to file a lawsuit to obtain compensation. At the Law Office of Paul G. Barden, PLLC, I strongly believe healthcare providers should be held responsible for birth injuries caused by their negligence and carelessness. Serving clients in the Rochester area and and throughout New York, I pursue the maximum damages possible to help ensure your child receives the care he needs — and to impress upon these professionals that their actions, or lack of action at a critical time, can cause irreparable harm to someone’s life.
Proven injury lawyer understands the causes of birth injuries
At the Law Office of Paul G. Barden, PLLC, I know that birth injuries can happen before, during or shortly after delivery. I also know that they are more likely to occur when certain factors come into play, such as:
- A failure to identify, monitor or act on fetal distress
- A failure to plan for an emergency C-section
- The use of excessive force during delivery
- The misuse of instruments during delivery
- Lack of blood or oxygen to the infant's brain
- Exposure to bacteria
- Respiratory distress
- Placenta previa
When the negligence of a medical professional leads to a birth injury, my firm will press to hold them accountable and get you the compensation you deserve.
Determined litigator handles claims for a range of birth injuries
When a medical professional fails to provide an accepted standard of care before, during or after delivery, there are many types of harm that can result. Some of the most common types of birth injuries are:
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Brachial plexus injuries
- Bone fractures
- Shoulder dystocia
- Brain damage
- Facial paralysis
- Spinal cord injuries
- Nerve injuries
- Oxygen deprivation
- Intracranial hemorrhages
- Caput Succedaneum
- Horner’s syndrome
No matter the birth injury your infant suffers, I will draw upon the expertise of medical professionals whose testimony can bolster your case for full compensation.
Experienced counselor knows the need for prompt treatment
While some birth injuries heal naturally over time, it is critical you monitor your child’s health to ensure they receive the medical attention they need. Surgeries to repair nerve damage are more effective when a baby is still an infant, and early physical therapy helps weakened muscles develop before unnecessary strain is placed on healthier limbs. I will work with you and trusted doctors to ensure your child gets appropriate care.
