Obstetrical malpractice, otherwise known as "birth errors" cause injuries during hundreds of births every year. At Ginsberg & O'Connor, P.C., our attorneys have handled hundreds of obstetrical malpractice cases throughout New Jersey, including cases of shoulder dystocia. Shoulder dystocia is a birth complication which, through physician error, can lead to a permanent disability known as Erb's palsy. Please see our article for more information on shoulder dystocia and Erb's palsy.
In addition to Erb's palsy, birth injuries can occur from leaving a child in the birth canal for too long, depriving it of oxygen and potentially causing brain damage. Injuries can also occur to the infant's skull, arms or legs through improper use of force by the delivering physician.
If your child has suffered a birth injury due to obstetrical malpractice, or if you were injured while delivering your child because of physician error, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and the disabilities suffered by your child. The birth injury attorneys of Ginsberg & O'Connor, P.C. will explain your rights under New Jersey law during your free initial consultation. We have successfully recovered damages against obstetricians for the improper and negligent management of pregnancies and the delivery of babies.
