We firmly believe that pregnancy is one of the most beautiful moments in an individual’s life. We also believe that pregnancy is a serious matter that deserves careful attention from medical personnel.

What Constitutes As Medical Malpractice Regarding My Case?
A wide array of pregnancy complications could warrant a potential medical malpractice case on your behalf. To begin, if you were pregnant and suffered a debilitating injury or your newborn died, you have a potential medical malpractice claim if you can prove that a medical error was the cause of the injury or death.
What’s The Difference Between Pregnancy And Birth Complications?
While both terms are used interchangeably, there is a difference between these two types of complications. Pregnancy complications result when there is substandard care during a pregnancy, which results in injury or harm to the mother or newborn. On the other hand, birth complications result when there is substandard care during delivery, which results in injury or harm to the mother or newborn.
What Do I Need To Present As Proof For My Case?
In the state of New York, to bring a medical malpractice claim, it is necessary to have an opinion from a physician stating your injury was the direct cause of medical malpractice.
This opinion will be based on a review of your medical and hospital records.
