The Nashua Birth Injury Lawyers at Sweeney Merrigan Law Fight for You 

When a medical team acts in a careless or negligent manner, they impact the wellbeing and safety of the delivering mother and newborn during the birthing process. You’re entitled to hold the responsible medical team or individual accountable for the preventable injuries and losses you have endured due to their actions. Obtaining the maximum, fair compensation you deserve for present and future expenses may be challenging because Massachusetts medical malpractice laws are stringent in protecting hospitals and insurance companies when it comes to medical malpractice. 

At Sweeney Merrigan Law, we are empowered with over 100 years of combined experience and a knowledgeable team that has recovered millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts for victims that have been affected by medical negligence. 

With our thorough knowledge of the Massachusetts legal system and track record of success, we tirelessly fight on your behalf. We handle all details, including: 

  • Provide essential information and legal guidance throughout each step of the legal process
  • Obtain the necessary evidence needed to prove liability 
  • Conduct a comprehensive investigation into your claim and the direct actions that led to your newborn’s birth injury
  • Work with relevant field experts to testify on your behalf and validate your claim 
  • Handle negotiations to ensure your legal rights are protected
  • Prepare all required documents to build a successful case and take your case to court if necessary 

Dealing with insurance companies may be stressful and overwhelming in medical malpractice cases involving birth injury. Typically, insurance adjusters fight to diminish your settlement at every turn. The lawyers at Sweeney Merrigan Law do not allow you to be taken advantage of and advocate for the compensation you deserve. We are experienced negotiators and understand the maximum compensation needed to fully support the care of your child following a Nashua birth injury. 

What Is a Nashua Birth Injury? 

A Nashua birth injury is a type of injury that occurs right before, during, or right after the birthing process due to the negligent and inadequate care provided by the healthcare professional. Over 2,000 babies are affected by a birth injury every month in the US. Licensed medical professionals are trained and educated to respond and to treat emergency circumstances that arise during birth. When a medical professional fails to respond properly, it may result in a birth injury. 

If treatment falls below the standard set in the medical industry and a different medical professional with the same expertise would not have made the same mistake under similar circumstances, you may be able to pursue necessary compensation for the losses you have incurred. If you believe your doctor directly caused a birth injury to you or your newborn, speak to the lawyers at  Sweeney Merrigan Law for a comprehensive assessment of your case.

How Does Medical Negligence Cause a Nashua Birth Injury? 

Medical emergencies happen; it is your medical professional’s responsibility to act and treat the emergency accordingly. If your doctor, nurse, surgeon, or another individual on your healthcare team fails to prevent harm where another medical professional would have mitigated it, it can cause serious lifelong consequences. 

Some of the most common Nashua medical negligence mistakes that result in birth injury include: 

  • Failing to adequately monitor the mother during labor and delivery
  • Failing to adequately monitor the newborn during labor and delivery
  • Failing to diagnose, treat, and monitor the mother during pregnancy to identify any conditions, complications, or risks 
  • Failing to identify when to perform a necessary C-section
  • Incorrectly using forceps and vacuum extractors during delivery
  • Oxygen deprivation or uterine rupture
  • Failing to address signs of fetal distress
  • Medication or dosage errors during labor and delivery

If you have been substantially injured due to another individual’s mistake during the birthing process, you may be able to fully recover compensation for the losses you have endured. The Nashua lawyers at Sweeney Merrigan Law understand that damages may affect you and your child long-term, and you should not have to bear the financial burden for their negligence.
