Medical Mistakes At Birth Inflict Lasting Damage

The birth of a new family member should be a joyous time of celebration. When you entrust your and your baby's well-being to health care professionals during this extremely vulnerable occasion, you deserve attentive medical care. However, when doctors fail to provide adequate care before, during and after labor, they put both mother and child at great risk.

Few events can be more devastating than injuries at birth. If your family has suffered due to the negligence of hospital staff, we want to hear your story. At D'Alessandro & Wright, LLC, our personal injury attorneys possess more than 25 years of legal experience and can help you to seek the compensation you deserve. With an office in Providence, we serve parents across the state of Rhode Island and the surrounding area.

Our firm can address cases involving injuries to both the mother and the child, such as:

  • Asphyxiation
  • Blunt force trauma
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Nerve damage

If the injuries in question are the result of a birth defect, you may be able to seek compensation. Our attorneys can help you to understand whether you have a strong claim as well as what to expect moving forward.

Who May Be Liable For A Birth Injury?

Doctors and physicians aren't the only ones who can be held responsible for birth injuries. The truth is that any negligent medical professional can be the subject of a medical malpractice claim – including a nurse, phlebotomist, orderly or anesthesiologist. Depending on the circumstances of your case, the hospital itself may be liable for injuries.

Every case is unique, which is why it is critical to contact legal advocates who possess substantial experience with malpractice claims. No matter how complex your case is, our attorneys can champion your rights.

A Trusted Firm With A Passion For Justice

A birth injury can permanently affect the life of your child. Medical professionals have a duty to provide every patient with proper care. When they ignore that responsibility, we may hold them liable for resulting injuries in court.
