The newly-announced focus gives families the necessary support to successfully navigate the complex and prolonged litigation that occurs with medical lawsuits.

According to the Birth Injury Justice Center, about 7 out of every 1000 babies born in the United States suffer injuries during birth. These injuries can lead to short- or long-term complications, cause significant stress, and be quite expensive to treat.

NJ Injury Guys works to help families recoup costs for a variety of injuries resulting from malpractice, including brachial plexus damage, bone fractures, spinal cord injuries, brain and head trauma, subdural hematoma, cerebral and Erb’s palsy, and premature rupture of membranes (PROM).

Families can file for a birth injury malpractice suit up to two years after the birth, although if the injury is detected later it may be possible to file a later claim. The settlement amount varies depending on the severity of the injury received and the cost of treatment.

Compensatory damages include past, ongoing, and future medical bills, physical therapy, medical devices, funerary and burial costs, emotional pain and suffering, decreased quality of life, and loss of companionship.

To win the case, the lawyer has to prove the four D’s of medical malpractice to the court: Duty (a doctor-patient relationship existed), Deviation (the provider didn’t follow procedure), Direct (the malpractice directly caused injury), and Damages (damage occurred).

NJ Injury Guys is a firm that specializes in cases of personal injury, car accidents, worker’s compensation, medical malpractice and sexual abuse. The litigation team is led by Yalissa Alfaro, Gabriel DiLeonardo, and Jay Edelstein, and offers services in both English and Spanish.

According to a customer: “They always kept me updated on my case and explained everything to me in a way I could understand. I’m very impressed with the outcome and would highly recommend them to anyone in need of a personal injury attorney.”
