We Help Families Recover When Negligent Medical Care Affects The Health And Well-Being Of A Newborn.

If your child was born with a birth injury, don’t assume the obstetrician and nurses did everything that could be done to prevent the injury from occurring. After listening to your case, a skilled New York birth injury lawyer at the Law Office of Richard M. Kenny can provide you with all of your legal options, including an evaluation of whether or not you have grounds to recover financial compensation through a medical malpractice claim under medical malpractice law.

While it is reasonable to expect that doctors and nurses will take every possible precaution to ensure the safety and well-being of a patient, you must remember they are human, and despite years of education and training, they do make mistakes. When they do, they can — and should — be held accountable for the devastating consequences. A careful investigation of the situation may reveal that your child’s injury is the result of medical negligence, and if this is the case, an attorney from our firm may be able to help you file a malpractice claim for damages.

Recovering monetary damages in a birth injury lawsuit depends on being able to prove that the mistakes of the obstetrician, nurse, or other medical personnel are responsible for the injuries your child has suffered. Common examples of medical negligence in this context include brain damage caused by vacuum extractor misuse and forceps misuse, as well as brachial plexus injuries caused by the use of excessive force in handling shoulder dystocia.

Our Birth Injury Attorneys Have Been Helping Families For Over 100 Combined Years

Do not hesitate to contact us at The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny, to discuss your unique situation and learn whether you have grounds to sue for medical malpractice. Our injury attorneys have more than five decades of combined experience, and with a track record of more than $100 million recovered in insurance settlements and jury verdicts, we are prepared to take on even the most challenging cases. One of our lawyers spent the early part of his legal career practicing in a medical malpractice defense firm, a background that gives us a unique advantage in representing the rights of families in birth injury claims. We know where to look for evidence of the doctor’s negligence and have firsthand experience with the strategies that will most likely be used in an attempt to defeat your claim.

Receive Personal, One-On-One Attention Through Your Birth Injury Case

Unlike at many law firms, when you work with us you will receive individual attention at every stage of your case. We know what a terrible experience this may be for your family, and believe you deserve help in navigating the legal process and getting your life back in order. Our attorneys not only represent our clients in court, but also frequently act as counselors, providing guidance and dedicated advocacy to safeguard your interests. When you work with us, you will not be treated as a file number. You will meet directly with the attorney working on your case, and you will even receive your attorney’s personal phone number so that whenever you have a question, you can call for an answer.
