Experienced Legal Counsel For Families Of Children With Injuries Occurring At Birth

At The McDonough Law Office in Woodstown, Salem County, New Jersey, our attorneys provide prompt and sound advice for families of babies injured during labor or delivery. Martin T. McDonough M.D., J.D., applies his medical knowledge and experience to help move cases along without delay.

In practical terms, this means once you take advantage of our offer of a free consultation, you can expect a thoughtful and efficient evaluation. Our experience helps us ask the right questions and dig for evidence in the right corners. We can help you determine the next steps to take for the sake of your child injured during any part of the birthing process:

  • Through negligence during prenatal care such as misinterpreted genetic screening or an OB-GYN’s failure to diagnose and plan for known risk factors
  • Because of errors during labor, such as nurses’ failure to monitor or respond to signs of fetal distress
  • As a result of misguided maneuvers by the obstetrician or omissions during delivery
  • By a medical provider’s failure to act promptly and appropriately during the postnatal period of the first hours or days after birth — such as failure to monitor bilirubin levels when jaundice is present, to prevent kernicterus
