Birth Defects & Birth Injuries

No one should ever experience the pain of bringing a child into the world that has a birth defect or birth-related injury. Most often, these events are genetically based. But other times however, they may be a function of environment circumstances or due to medical malpractice or negligence. It is for these latter two situations that it is critical to contact an attorney qualified in handling birth defect cases.

Your baby will need ongoing medical attention and the last thing you should be doing is worrying about paying for his or her health care needs. This is true regardless of whether your claim is against a business entity, a municipality, or a medical professional or facility.

That is why we are here.

The birth injury attorneys at Cappucio & Zaorski have rich experience and a deep understanding of cases involving birth defects. In fact, one of our attorneys, John Zaorski, was recently named a finalist for the New Jersey Hall of Fame by the New Jersey Law Journal for his work in obtaining a landmark $6 million settlement on behalf of a child born with the lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (LCMV).

As parents ourselves, we are especially sensitive to the raw emotions that come with filing claims concerning birth defects. We blend an aggressive form of advocacy with an understanding that this is not an easy time for you or your newborn. Hence, we are available 24 hours a day/7 days to answer any questions you may have and to be with you every step of the way. Our goal is to obtain not just fair compensation, but the best possible life for your child. And we are paid only if we are successful in doing just that.
