New Jersey Birth Injury Lawyers
Having a child should be a joyous experience. But if a doctor, obstetrician, midwife, or other medical professional makes a mistake, the child can suffer a serious, debilitating injury. Suddenly the joy is mixed with worry, confusion, and frustration -- but medical facilities, hospitals, and other healthcare professionals will likely admit no or little responsibility.
A debilitating birth injury can mean a lifetime of medical treatments. The family of an afflicted child deserves compensation to pay for the past and future expenses resulting from medical malpractice and negligence. The birth injury lawyers of Miller and Gaudio, P.C., can fight for the compensation your family deserves. Our attorneys make home visits when appropriate.

A History of Success Handling Birth Injury Cases
One example of a birth injury case we handled successfully involved a nurse midwife who disconnected the fetal monitor during birth despite signs of fetal distress. The child ended up with severe mental retardation, requiring constant, lifelong care. We got the parents $3,000,000 in compensation. See our verdicts and settlements page for more on this and other past cases.
