Newborns are the most vulnerable of patients in a hospital. Doctors are held to an extremely high standard when caring for mothers during the delivery process. Communication and a doctor's ability to recognize distress are of the utmost importance. If a doctor fails to care for a mother or a fetus properly, the resulting injuries can be catastrophic. At the Law Offices of Jewel E. Lacey, we hold medical professionals accountable for their actions. We represent people throughout New York in medical malpractice lawsuits.

Advocating For Victims Of Medical Negligence
Birth injuries can be caused by a number of reasons. The mother can go through trauma while in the delivery process or a medical professional may neglect to follow up properly with the mother or child post-delivery. Most birth injuries could have been prevented if the doctor had taken appropriate measures and provided the necessary level of care.
