At The Law Office of Jonathan B. Ripps, we know that birth injuries can happen before, during or shortly after delivery. They are more likely to occur when certain factors come into play, such as:

  • A failure to identify, monitor or act on fetal distress

  • A failure to plan for an emergency C-section

  • The use of excessive force during delivery

  • The misuse of instruments during delivery

  • Lack of blood or oxygen to the infant’s brain

  • Exposure to bacteria

  • Respiratory distress

  • Placenta previa

When the negligence of a doctor or nurse leads to a birth injury, our firm will work to hold them accountable and get you the compensation you deserve.

While some birth injuries heal naturally over time, it is critical you monitor your child’s health to ensure they receive the medical attention they need. Surgeries to repair nerve damage are more effective when a baby is still an infant, and early physical therapy helps weakened muscles develop before unnecessary strain is placed on healthier limbs. We will work with you and trusted doctors to ensure your child gets appropriate care.

The Law Office of Jonathan B. Ripps represents parents throughout New York whose infants have suffered birth injuries involving a doctor’s negligence. We will do everything possible to ensure your family receives appropriate compensation for your child’s injuries.
