Skilled Ocean County NJ Medical Malpractice Attorneys Fight to Get Compensation for Victims of Birth Injuries
Doctors, nurses and delivery room attendants are required to follow standard treatment protocols before, during and after the birth of a baby. Failure to properly monitor the vital signs of a mother, fetal monitoring strips or symptoms indicative of fetal distress constitutes negligence. At the personal injury law office of Drazin and Warshaw, P.C., our attorneys consult obstetricians, nurses and other medical experts in reviewing the actions of doctors in NJ birth injury cases. We identify lapses in communication, delays in responding to the first signs of trouble, improperly executed surgical maneuvers and departures from standard treatment protocols.
Don’t let a doctor or hospital claim there are inherent risks in any birth as a cover for their negligence. To schedule a free consultation to discuss your case, contact the skilled New Jersey birth injury attorneys at Drazin and Warshaw, P.C. today.
