New Jersey Birth Injury Attorneys
When parents learn that their child has suffered brain damage during pregnancy, labor, delivery, or shortly after childbirth, many questions are left unanswered. How could this happen? Could something have been done to prevent the birth injury? How will they support the ongoing needs of their child?
New Jersey Infant Brain Damage — Lawyers Who Care About the Well-Being and Needs of Your Child
The grief, anger, feelings of helplessness, and other emotions experienced by parents are almost incomprehensible to others. However, our personal injury attorneys at Cowen & Jacobs work hard to relate to what our clients are going through as they learn more about their child’s birth injury. Our Hackensack birth injury lawyers take on the responsibility of seeking answers to their questions and pursuing financial recovery in order to provide for the ongoing needs of the child.
Our law firm offers experienced, caring, and diligent representation to parents dealing with the effects of infant brain damage and other birth injuries, including:
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Shoulder dystocia
- Other birth injuries
There are instances where doctors do everything right, yet a child suffers permanent damage. However, there are regrettable situations where — absent doctor negligence — the child could have been born perfectly healthy and lived a normal, fulfilling life.
When doctor negligence, hospital negligence or other medical negligence affects the life of a child, it is necessary to pursue accountability, and to pursue the compensation that will be necessary to provide for the ongoing needs of the child, and to enable to child to live life to the fullest extent possible.
Our New Jersey infant brain damage attorneys work with experts to identify negligence, such as failure to monitor for, recognize or respond to signs of fetal distress, failure to perform expedient cesarean sections when necessary, and other negligence. As experienced negotiators, we work to zealously represent the interests of the child in settlement negotiations, and trial if necessary.
