Long Island Birth Injury Attorneys

Serving NYC Boroughs & New York

As parents, we cannot help but worry for those who are most precious to us. We also cannot help but hope for a bright future for our children, for their health and happiness. We need to rely on others, specifically medical professionals, to help us safely bring our sons and daughters into this world. But what can we do when our trust is misplaced? What can we do when a doctor or nurse makes a mistake that leaves an innocent child suffering from a serious birth injury? We need to fight for justice.

For over 50 years, the Long Island birth injury lawyers at The Sanders Firm have fought for civil justice on behalf of newborns and children who have suffered harm due to obstetrical malpractice. We know the profound impact that cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, and other preventable birth injuries can have on a child and his or her family, and we pursue maximum financial compensation to provide the best care – for life. Let us provide the experienced counsel and compassionate support you need during this difficult time.
