New Jersey OB-GYN Injuries Attorneys

Picking Up the Pieces in the Aftermath of Obstetric Malpractice

Whether it is for the birth of a child or for their annual gynecological examination, many women have their greatest medical reliance on their obstetrician/gynecologist (OB-GYN). Almost every time a child is delivered in a hospital, the person responsible for leading the delivery is the obstetrician. When there are complications in labor and delivery, the obstetrician must evaluate the situation and determine the appropriate means to facilitate the safe delivery of the child. When obstetricians fail in these duties, both the child and the mother can be subjected to severe injuries. These injuries can alter the course of the child's and/or the mother's life. Some number of children injured at birth will require significant medical care, rehabilitation and accommodative equipment.

At Britcher Leone, LLC, in Glen Rock and Parsippany, we handle a wide range of medical malpractice cases throughout New Jersey. If your child or other loved one has been impacted by OB-GYN malpractice, our law firm can evaluate the medical care and aggressively represent your interests. Our law firm has the legal and medical knowledge to effectively pursue OB-GYN injury lawsuits. Our firm includes a lawyer who is also a doctor, giving our law firm a level of insight and knowledge that few firms possess. We are proud of our record of helping families who have suffered severe harm due to obstetric malpractice.

OB-GYN malpractice can include any number of actions or inactions, including:

Although legal action will not undo the harm you or your child has sustained, if the negligent care of the doctor or other medical professional is the reason, we may be able to help restore some of your future by obtaining the resources to meet your or your child's special needs.

The case below is but one example of our efforts. Our prior successes should not be construed as guaranteeing future outcomes.

A Superior Court Judge in Bergen County approved a $16 million structured settlement achieved by our firm on behalf of a Bergen County boy who was born with debilitating hydrocephalus, which was missed during prenatal testing. As a result, the parents were deprived of their ability to make a knowledgeable decision of whether to carry the pregnancy to term, and the child's condition went undiagnosed for several months after birth. We established that the child's brain had not properly developed, causing impairments of sight, hearing, ambulation, verbalization and other brain function.
