For many people, the most precious moments in their life are the few moments during birth when their child is brought into the world and they become new parents.

Maximum Compensation for Birth Injuries
When a child suffers a birth injury, such as cerebral palsy (CP), Erb's palsy or shoulder dystocia, it is often a result of some form of negligence such as:
- Failure to observe the fetal monitor
- Failure to perform a cesarean section
- Failure to provide adequate prenatal care
- Failure to use forceps or vacuum instruments appropriately
- Failure to recognize hypoxia, anoxia or symptoms of fetal distress
Our birth injury law team will look for all liable parties as we focus on achieving maximum compensation for your child's injuries, including for medical expenses, future care, pain and suffering, lost earning potential, and other damages. When these accidents turn fatal, we also represent surviving families in filing wrongful death lawsuits.
Experienced Taunton Birth Injury Lawyers
We would be pleased to consult with you when you are choosing who will represent you. Because the statute of limitations in Massachusetts applies to these cases, victims have a limited time in which to file their cases. We hold obstetricians, doctors, nurses, other medical staff, and the medical facility accountable when their negligent actions result in a birth injury.
Our lawyers investigate the incident reviewing hospital policies, medical records, and other information. We utilize medical experts to determine if the care provided was substandard and therefore medical malpractice. We act quickly to preserve evidence, such as medical records, before they are tampered with or destroyed. We utilize all means necessary to obtain rightful compensation, which can reduce financial strain on the family and enhance the infant's future.
