Albany Birth Injury Lawyers
Medical Malpractice Lawyers Serving Upstate New York Since 1950
In many cases when labor begins, an expectant mother or couple will place its faith in the judgment, medical knowledge and experience of the doctor who is performing the delivery of the child. They may defer judgment based on the advice and direction of the delivering physician. They may not be presented with a choice on certain decisions at all.
None of that matters if the trust that is placed in the delivering physician is rewarded with a successful delivery. But, deliveries can experience complications that can have a lifelong impact on the child if not properly addressed in a way that respects the urgency of the situation.
When your child has been injured during delivery, you need experienced and aggressive representation to uncover the facts of your situation and to effectively pursue justice and compensation.
At Friedman, Hirschen & Miller, LLP, our birth injury lawyers understand the pain that is caused to families when birth injuries occur. We understand the need for the real facts of the situation to become known and that hospitals and doctors are not forthcoming with facts when a mistake may have been made. We also know that many birth injuries result in the need for intensive medical treatment over the course of the life of the child.
Aggressive and Experienced Representation Designed to Ensure Your Child's Needs Are Met
Our attorneys understand the fact that families with children who have suffered birth injuries need answers as well as compensation to be able to ensure that their child has the medical care required. We have a track record that includes having secured numerous multi-million dollar awards for our clients.
We also understand how to structure any compensation so that your child's lifelong medical needs can be met. We will help you develop a life care plan that addresses those needs. If necessary, we can set up a supplemental needs trust or a structured settlement to protect those funds from being taken by Medicaid.
