4. We’ll Negotiate Birth Injury Settlements on Your Behalf
Our attorneys will negotiate a New York birth injury settlement with the defendant(s), which would be the hospital or medical professionals responsible for your child’s birth injury.
The majority of cases end in a settlement, which means you may not have to step foot in court.
If a settlement is unable to be reached, our birth injury lawyers are prepared to present your case in a trial and fight for a verdict on your behalf.
