Medical Malpractice Claims in Delivery or Pregnancy

Parents expecting a baby have no choice but to place their trust in the doctors and medical professionals. If that trust is breached through negligent monitoring or poor decisions, the consequences to a newborn or developing infant can be devastating. At Scarcella Law Offices of White Plains, New York, we hold physicians, nurses and hospitals accountable for errors resulting in birth defects or infant death.

Holding Doctors Accountable for Birth Injury

Our compassionate medical malpractice attorneys have the experience and resources to bring a lawsuit against health care professionals to bring justice to families, and compensate them for the emotional damage and ongoing medical needs of the infant. With offices in Manhattan and White Plains, we represent parents in New York City, Westchester County, and Putnam and Rockland counties.

Did Your Doctor Deviate from the Standard of Care?

Our lawyers have won settlements and verdicts in all types of birth injury cases:

  • Cerebral palsy resulting from oxygen deprivation during childbirth
  • Erb's palsy and other nerve damage resulting from improper delivery techniques
  • Harm to the baby or mother in failing to perform a C-section in a timely manner
  • Failure to identify distress in newborns or fetuses

Malpractice claims involve complex, technical medical issues. In a lawsuit for damages, we must demonstrate that physicians or hospital personnel deviated from the accepted standard of care. We are familiar with New York medical malpractice laws, and have access to medical experts who can certify that doctor error or inadequate monitoring and analysis caused a birth injury or delayed treatment that could have prevented or minimized harm.

Personalized Attention, Aggressive Representation

At Scarcella Law Offices, we understand the profound grief of parents when a baby suffers brain damage or loss of function because of incompetence. We are attentive to the child's medical recovery and prognosis, and communicate with clients about progress in their legal case. Our skilled trial lawyers consult with life care planners to ensure that all future medical care is covered in our vigorous pursuit of compensation.
