New York Ob-Gyn Malpractice Attorneys

The birth of a child is usually one of the happiest moments in a person's life, but when mistakes are made in the delivery room or during pregnancy, it may result in a serious birth injury and a lifetime of devastation and loss for the infant and the family. When these mistakes are made because delivery room doctors, obstetricians and other medical professionals are negligent or careless, that devastation can be even greater.

We also understand the financial burdens on families that must contend with years of medical bills and future care.
