New York City Birth Injury Attorneys


The birth of a child is supposed to be one of the best moments of your life. But even a minor medical mistake can quickly turn childbirth into a devastating experience. Negligence that occurs before, during, or immediately after delivery may have long-term consequences for the baby, including cerebral palsy and brain damage. Mothers can also suffer serious harm due to negligence during the birthing process. However, you are not alone – a birth injury attorney can help.

If you or your child was harmed due to complications caused by medical negligence in labor and delivery, you may be entitled to financial compensation. For 40 years, the medical malpractice lawyers at Finz & Finz, P.C. in New York City, have helped families just like yours secure the compensation they deserve. While financial compensation can’t undo a traumatic birth complication, it can help offset the losses your family has endured.

Some of our recent victories for NY birth injury lawsuits include:

  • $4,200,000 settlement for a pregnant mother who suffered a stroke due to negligence during delivery.
  • $1,375,000 settlement against a doctor who failed to deliver a child by C-section in a timely manner, resulting in neurological injury to the infant and eventually, death.
  • $1,200,000 settlement for an infant born prematurely requiring prolonged hospitalization and surgery as a result of a doctor’s failure to closely monitor the pregnancy.
  • $2,252,000 settlement for an infant where the doctor failed to perform a C-section, which resulted in mild cognitive delays.
