The birth of a child is often a joyous and memorable event in life. While most births occur without any serious incident, complications can always happen. In some cases, a baby may need to be given neonatal care to help manage a condition or problem.

If you believe your child’s injuries are due to negligent neonatal care, our New Jersey birth injury attorneys are here to provide insight and legal guidance.

Identifying NICU Errors & Negligence
When a baby requires neonatal care, medical professionals should be on high alert. Babies are often admitted to the NICU because they were delivered prematurely and / or they are having breathing problems. Nurses, staff, and doctors must all carefully monitor and treat the child during this time. Even the smallest of medical errors could lead to a devastating brain injury.

- Failure to properly oxygenate / ventilate the baby
- Lack of treatment for respiratory distress
- Inattention or lack of monitoring
- Delayed or improper resuscitation following birth
