New York, New Jersey Birth Injury Attorneys

Experienced personal injury trial attorneys helping injured New York and New Jersey families for over a decade.

Obstetric Malpractice • Birth Defects • Long-Term Care Planning for Infant Brain Injury Victims

An experienced New York and New Jersey birth injury attorney can offer a ray of hope to families of children who have suffered birth defects or infant brain injuries as a result of medical negligence before, during, or after birth. Obstetric malpractice may include such action as failure to properly monitor a fetus during prenatal care, labor, or delivery. In most cases, a failure to follow proper treatment protocols leads to mistakes made during delivery. The attorneys at Albert Buzzetti & Associates work closely with medical experts in identifying mistakes made by doctors and nurses before, during, and after delivery that lead to serious birth injuries.

Independent Evaluation is Key in Cases of Cerebral Palsy and Other Birth Defects

Our experience as personal injury and medical malpractice lawyers has given us the knowledge and the tools necessary to evaluate circumstances that may have caused your infant's cerebral palsy or other birth defect. We know that the beginning of the path to justice is a full awareness and presentation of the facts of a matter.

Lack of Oxygen or Failure to Monitor May Lead to Birth Injury

When we accept a birth injury case, we have an independent physician examine the records related to prenatal care and birthing of a baby that developed Erb's palsy or shoulder dysplasia. Often, it is discovered that a lack of oxygen at the time of birth, a failure to deliver a child on time, or a failure to appropriately delay the onset of labor was an underlying cause in the birth injury.

If your baby was put on a respirator immediately after birth, this may indicate that doctors did not properly medicate with steroids prior to labor and delivery when there was reason to believe that lungs were not developing properly.

The Child is the Client

When we take a birth injury case at the law offices of Albert Buzzetti & Associates , the child is our client. Our concern for our infant clients who have suffered birth injuries goes far beyond the immediate concerns of medical treatment. We take care to address all resulting costs, pain, and suffering that will be a result of a birth defect: long term-care planning, special education, ongoing therapy are other expenses. We work to protect the interests of the child, as well as to process claims on behalf of the parents who also experience loss.
