Birth Injuries

Introducing Our Firm

Whenever something goes wrong in the delivery room and a baby dies or suffers a debilitating birth injury—nobody leaves that room without being deeply and profoundly scarred by the experience. And although going to the hospital is much like going to trial in that there are never any guaranteed results—sometimes, "what went wrong" isn't just a random tragedy. Sometimes, birth injury is the direct result of malpractice.

Our Firm Knows The Difference

If there has recently been a case of unexpected birth trauma in your family, talking to a lawyer isn't something you do just for yourself; it's something you do for others, too.

Contact Hoyt & Hoyt, PC, for a free consultation and to learn more about what we can do for you.

At Hoyt & Hoyt, PC, our lawyers represent birth injury victims and parents throughout northern New Jersey and fight to secure fair compensation. This compensation will never replace your loss, but it is a way of holding those responsible accountable for their actions. Our birth injury practice includes cases involving:

  • Cerebral palsy/brain damage
  • Shoulder dystocia/Erb's palsy
  • Failure to diagnose fetal distress
  • Anoxic injuries
  • Skull malformations
  • Failure to perform a cesarean section in a timely way
  • Failure to perform an episiotomy

While the OB-GYN is typically the defendant in these cases, keep in mind that it is generally going to be the doctor's medical malpractice insurance carrier that you actually try to recover damages from. We mention this because many people feel conflicted or even guilty at the thought of bringing a lawsuit against their doctor. And while these feelings are understandable, don't let them prevent you from protecting yourself and other prospective parents.

Our firm has a great deal of experience with these and other types of medical malpractice cases. We also have a physician on staff who will review your case and try to answer any questions you have about what really happened and why. We can make a difference for you.
