Medical Negligence to Birth Injuries

Trusted Authorities on Medical Negligence that Leads to Birth Injuries

The birth of a child should be a joyous occasion – but when medical negligence occurs, you and your child may end up living a more difficult, complicated life. Every year, hundreds of children are born with birth injuries as a result of medical malpractice. Garces, Grabler & LeBrocq is here to ensure that those children have the best possible futures they can.

Since 1991, the personal injury and medical malpractice attorneys of GGL have protected the rights of mothers and their children who have been victimized by medical negligence. We treat our clients with respect and compassion, offering comprehensive guidance through the legal system. We are tenacious in our drive to obtain the compensation you and your child deserve after the preventable error of a health care provider has led to a birth injury.

Common Birth-Related Medical Malpractice Cases

GGL handles a wide array of medical malpractice cases throughout New Jersey, but we are especially adept at those involving birth injuries. Some of the more common cases that occur include:

  • Shoulder dystocia. Shoulder dystocia occurs most often when a baby’s shoulder is displaced during the birthing process. It can be fatal, as it places undue distress on the mother and the child, and can cause the umbilical cord to become compressed.
  • Cerebral palsy. CP affects the motor centers of a baby’s brain, and can develop while the fetus is in utero or during the birthing process. An undiagnosed infection in the mother can also lead to cerebral palsy.
  • Erb’s palsy. Often the result of shoulder dystocia, Erb’s palsy is a form of paralysis affecting the upper arm of a child. Children born with Erb’s palsy may need surgery or rehabilitation to regain movement in their arm.
  • Oxygen deprivation. The compression of the umbilical cord, an undiagnosed illness or a doctor’s failure to monitor a pregnancy carefully can all lead to oxygen deprivation. A lack of oxygen – even for a very short amount of time – can have permanent effects on your child’s development, physically, mentally and emotionally.

Every child deserves a chance at the best possible life. Gross medical negligence could lead to a lifetime of therapy, additional surgeries or untold expenses for adequate care. In the most tragic medical malpractice cases, negligence can lead to a wrongful death. Our skilled injury lawyers understand the difficulties you face, and we will advocate tirelessly on behalf of you and your child.

Garces, Grabler & LeBrocq has eight offices throughout New Jersey for your convenience. To schedule a free consultation with an experienced birth injury attorney, please call 1-800-923-3456 or contact us online. Let us help protect your child’s future.

, Feb 3, 2017
I had the good fortune of Mr. Pasquale Vella representing in a matter that I had deemed a bleak one, with no positive outcome in sight. Vella assured me that he would work hard to get me the best results possible, and that is exactly what he did. He worked tirelessly making sure he covered all possible angles, and in the end I was extremely pleased with his services. Vella proved to be diligent, aggressive in yielding results, and very professional, all while maintaining a communicative yet good natured rapport with me as his client. I would most certainly use his services again in the future as well as highly recommend him to anyone in need of a great criminal defense attorney.

I recently had gotten a ticket that was worth 5 points. I choose this firm because they were local to where the incident occurred. I was very nervous and unsure of the possible outcomes. They were so patient and reassuring with my case. Everything went smoothly and quickly and I was very happy with the final results! I would highly recommend them!
, Feb 25, 2016
Johnathan Kessous did a fantastic job handling my case. I hope i never need his expertise again...but if I do, he would be my first choice for legal representation. I had gotten a speeding ticket on the NJTPK going 84 in a 55 which resulted in a state trooper issuing me a 5 point ticket. Johnathan got it reduced down to zero points... just a fine.
