Legal Action After Your Child’s Birth Injury
Bronx Birth Injury Lawyers — Bronx Cerebral Palsy Lawyers — Bronx Brain Damage Lawyers
When doctors, nurses and other medical professionals are negligent, their patients may suffer serious or fatal injuries. This is especially true when the patient is a vulnerable newborn. At Ellis Law, we represent the families of babies who were injured by medical negligence.
Our work includes representing the families of children who have experienced birth injuries, including:
- Birth defects of all types
- Brain damage due to oxygen deprivation or other circumstances
- Cerebral palsy, from mild cases to the most severe
- Erb’s palsy, causing paralysis and other complications
- Brachial plexus injuries (complications from shoulder dystocia)
- Wrongful death that should have been prevented
If your child has suffered a serious injury due to medical negligence, he or she may be entitled to compensation. This compensation can be used to support your child and provide assistance over the course of his or her lifetime. It may pay for necessary medical equipment, physical, occupational and speech therapy, in-home care and other accommodations that will be needed. Your family should not struggle to provide for a child after a health care provider causes a birth injury. Get legal help now. To speak with an experienced personal injury and medical malpractice lawyer, contact Ellis Law.
We have several convenient offices throughout New York, including Albany, NYC and Poughkeepsie. We are pleased to offer a free consultation and charge no fees unless we recover compensation for you.
Put Our Experience To Work For You
Birth injury claims can be complex and heated. The hospital and medical professionals who were negligent will be represented by experienced medical malpractice insurance defense attorneys. Often, the parties blame each other — the doctor blames the hospital staff for the damage. In turn, the hospital staff blames the doctor. It takes a skilled attorney to hold the real wrongdoers accountable.
This is especially true when the parties argue that your child’s injury or disability is unrelated to the care that was provided. Even if it is apparent that errors were made, the insurance defense attorney may argue that the errors did not fall below the accepted standard of medical care.
Mr. Ellis spent the first two years of his career working for a large medical malpractice insurance defense law firm. While doing so, he learned how the insurance companies and their lawyers prepare to defend against malpractice claims. He has since spent more than 30 years using what he learned to assist victims hurt by careless doctors. Mr. Ellis and his experienced co-counsel are prepared to put that experience and knowledge to work for you and your child.
At Ellis Law, we know how to uncover evidence of medical negligence. We know what questions to ask, what evidence must be sought and what steps to take to build strong cases for our clients. We have recovered millions of dollars for our clients and will fight to seek the full compensation you deserve for what you and your child have endured due to a negligent medical care.* That compensation will include the cost of past and future medical care and compensation for pain, suffering, permanency of injury and all other damages you and your child have suffered.
