The birth of a child is an event that should be amongst life's happiest and most enduring memories. Unfortunately, some births have that enduring quality due to errors made by physicians and other medical personnel during the course of the pregnancy or actual birth process.
In purely clinical terms, "birth trauma" and "birth injury" refer to the variety of injuries that can occur just before, during, or immediately following birth. In human terms, they mean something else entirely. Because the results of birth injuries are devastating to families, both emotionally and financially, the law seeks to protect victims.
If your child has suffered a birth injury, please contact the experienced team at R.J. Marzella & Associates. We use medical experts to review all the medical records and documentation from the birthing facility, as well as records from specialists who have treated the child. These experts can determine whether medical malpractice or delivery errors attributed to the child's injury or disease, even if it is years down the road.
Nursing Home Negligence
We entrust our loved ones into the care of nursing facilities, expecting that they will receive the love and care that they deserve. Unfortunately, as nursing home management companies try to meet the demands of increasing numbers of patients and decreasing availability of qualified staff, more shortcuts are being taken that lower the quality of care your loved one is receiving. This results in negligence and injuries to one of our most vulnerable populations.
Nursing home negligence includes a range of harm from overt, visible physical injuries to dehydration, malnutrition, and infections caused by bedsores left untreated. If you suspect your loved one has been harmed or injured by a negligent nursing facility, take the first step to protect your legal rights by contacting the experienced attorneys at R.J. Marzella & Associates.
