A birth injury can occur during the birth process, during the pregnancy or shortly after the birth. Serious birth injuries may have a life long impact on the injured baby and may sometimes result in death.

At Harnick and Harnick, our birth injury lawyers will seek fair compensation for those who have been injured and their families.

The law firm of Harnick and Harnick has years of legal experience successfully handling birth injury cases. Birth injuries and trauma can vary greatly from minor injuries to very serious injuries and permanent damage. Birth injuries such as swelling, bruising and forceps marks are generally not serious and heal within a few weeks. There may be temporary loss of nerve or muscular function due to bruising, pressure or swelling of the areas around the nerves. These situations can resolve themselves within weeks or months, although permanent nerve damage may result from nerves being torn.

The birth injury attorneys at Harnick and Harnick have worked with families traumatized by many types of birth injuries. Some of the serious conditions resulting from a birth injury or trauma are:

  • Developmental disabilities and delays
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Erb's Palsy
  • Brain damage
  • Permanent nerve or muscle function damage
