Brooklyn Neonatal Errors Injury Lawyer

Put Decades of Experience in Your Corner

The neonatal period in a child’s life is made up of the first 28 days after the infant is born. During this period of time, some children require days or even weeks of neonatal care, sometimes in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Medical malpractice can happen in any type of medical situation, including neonatal care. If your child was injured due to a neonatal error, you should contact an experienced Brooklyn neonatal malpractice lawyer who can help you file a lawsuit.

Placing Your Child In Neonatal Care

Some children do not require extensive neonatal care and are discharged from the hospital soon after their birth. Other infants, however, need to be monitored by hospital staff due to medical conditions that require professional care. During this care, if a doctor or nurse is negligent and commits an error in the course of your child’s care, you have the right to bring a claim on your child’s behalf to compensate for their pain and suffering.

What Types of Errors Can Occur in Neonatal Care?

Some children who are in neonatal care require constant monitoring and attention. Any lapse in their monitoring can be a departure from hospital policy and a form of negligence that can cause serious injury or death. Another form of neonatal negligence is a medication error. Children who are in the neonatal stage are extraordinarily sensitive to medications due to their small size and developing bodies. Even the smallest error in dosage or medication type can cause a devastating injury or even death.

In addition to neonatal errors with medication and monitoring, a physician can also commit professional malpractice by misdiagnosing a child. The diagnosis of a child who is receiving neonatal care is an important part of the treatment for that child. Because young infants’ bodies are still developing and are very fragile, there is no time to waste in receiving a correct diagnosis and implementing the correct course of treatment.

Receive the Proper Compensation for Your Child's Injuries

If an infant is misdiagnosed or their condition is undiagnosed, this can lead to improper medication or improper medical treatment, which can be extremely dangerous and even fatal to a child. If your child’s birth injuries or illness went undiagnosed or were misdiagnosed in the neonatal care phase, you should contact a Brooklyn neonatal malpractice attorney today at Belushin Law Firm to discuss a potential lawsuit to compensate for your child’s pain and suffering.
