Massachusetts Birth Injury Attorney

Few circumstances are more traumatic to a family than a birth injury. A birth injury is any injury to the fetus sustained during the labor and delivery process. Medical mistakes involving, a failure to take appropriate preventive measures or not quickly responding to events such as fetal distress or a lack of oxygen to the baby, can produce absolutely devastating results.
