New York Birth Injury Attorneys
Holding Negligent Parties Responsible
Some birth injuries are apparent at birth. Others only come to light over time. If your child was born with cerebral palsy or Erb’s palsy (an effect of shoulder dystocia), you may not have been aware of the birth injury right away in the delivery room. In fact, you may not have known until a few hours, days, or weeks later.
On the other hand, you may have known the birth was difficult but did not suspect a birth injury until learning disabilities surfaced later. If you suspect negligence, call our New York birth injury lawyers. At The Paris Law Group, PC we’re committed to achieving justice for all our personal injury clients.

Suspect Foul Play? Call Us Today
Laws about birth injuries take into account the element of time required to understand the full impact of those injuries on a child’s life. Birth injury cases have longer statutes of limitation than most kinds of plaintiff’s claims. This means that you may be able to bring a birth injury claim years later. However, as in all injury cases, we urge you to contact us sooner than later once you suspect a problem.
If The Paris Law Group, PC handles your child’s birth injury case, we will conduct a thorough investigation including reviewing medical records stemming from prenatal care, labor, delivery, and postnatal care. We are likely to involve medical experts in the analysis of these records.
Experts and our law firm may discover irregularities that pinpoint medical negligence such as:
- Failure to take into account known risk factors before the birthing and plan accordingly
- Failure to monitor a fetus’s condition during labor
- Failure to detect and act when fetal distress was detectable through the fetal monitor
- Failure to perform well-known maneuvers as needed during birthing to prevent shoulder dystocia
- Failure to respond appropriately to signs of problems apparent immediately after birth (such as jaundice)
Your child may face a lifetime of therapy, special education, and physical or mental disabilities because of medical malpractice during prenatal care, labor, delivery, and the post-delivery time frame. A birth injury claim or lawsuit may bring the resources you and your child need to face these challenges.
