Pursuing Claims on Behalf of Children and Mothers

Although delivery of a newborn is one of the most common medical procedures, it still carries many serious risks. When doctors and nurses do not take adequate care during the childbirth process, they can cause significant injuries to babies and their mothers.

At the law firm of DeLuca & Weizenbaum, our experienced Massachusetts birth injury lawyers help clients in Fall River, Taunton and other communities from New Bedford to Boston pursue birth injury claims. To schedule a free consultation with a dedicated attorney, contact us today.

Seeking Compensation for Obstetrician Malpractice

Obstetricians and other health care providers must take special care during childbirth to prevent causing injuries to both the child and the mother. When they do not follow appropriate standards and procedures, the consequences can include the following:

  • Oxygen deprivation: The loss of oxygen to a baby during the delivery process can result in serious brain injuries that can permanently impact the child's life.
  • Cerebral palsy: One common consequence of childbirth brain injuries is cerebral palsy, a disability associated with the motor functions and nervous system.
  • Erb's palsy: Shoulder dystocia — an injury to the nerves in the shoulder that can occur during birth — can cause Erb's palsy, a condition that can have permanent consequences.

In order to pursue a medical malpractice claim for birth injuries in Massachusetts, it is necessary to obtain expert medical testimony documenting the negligence that occurred and the relationship between that negligence and the injuries suffered by the child or mother.

The lawyers and nurses at our firm are experienced at working with credible medical experts and cutting-edge technology to document and support our clients' cases.

Don't hesitate to contact us at our offices in Providence to discuss your birth injury claim. You will not pay any fees unless we help you or your child obtain compensation.
