A Challenging Start To Life

The birth of a child should be a joyous time. Unfortunately, complications can arise during the delivery process that result in permanent injury to the baby. In fact, seven out of every 1000 births in the U.S. result in birth injuries caused by the negligence of a health care professional.

At DeLuca, Weizenbaum, Barry & Revens, Ltd., our team of experienced Rhode Island birth injury lawyers helps parents seek compensation for children who have suffered serious injuries during delivery. Contact us today at our offices in Providence to schedule a free consultation.

Identifying The Causes Of Your Child’s Injuries

Not every birth injury is the result of negligence on the part of your health care provider. However, an improperly handled or delayed delivery can significantly increase the risk of complications. Doctors are also expected to follow the correct procedures in dealing with those complications.

Types Of Cases We Handle

Our firm represents children and parents in claims against OB-GYNs and other medical personnel for all types of birth injuries, including but not limited to:

Brain Injuries During Birth

Oxygen deprivation during childbirth can seriously injure the child’s brain, resulting in developmental delays, intellectual disabilities and other conditions.

Erb’s Palsy

Nerve damage due to shoulder dystocia is the most common cause of Erb’s palsy, a form of paralysis that can have long-term consequences.

Dropping Of Newborns

Any injury that occurs when a child is dropped during or immediately after delivery may be the result of medical malpractice.

Forceps Injuries

Forceps should only be used during childbirth in rare instances, as they can cause bruising and other serious injuries to the child.

Postpartum Negligence

If the mother is not given proper treatment after delivery, she may end up suffering infections, infertility and other serious consequences.
