Concerned, capable trial lawyers fight for your child’s full compensation

The birth of your child should be a cause for celebration, but when a doctor’ error during delivery injures your child, it becomes a time of great anxiety. How badly hurt is your baby? Is the harm permanent? What does this mean for your child’s quality of life? At The Matassini Law Firm, P.A., we help parents get answers and full compensation for the harm done to their children.

With more than 60 years of combined legal practice, our Tampa birth injury lawyers have the experience, knowledge and skill to deliver favorable results in negotiations and at trial.

Understanding birth injuries caused by healthcare provider error

Labor and delivery have inherent risks for mother and child, and not every bad outcome justifies a malpractice claim. Our firm thoroughly investigates the circumstances surrounding your child’s injury to ascertain where the delivery team or the hospital violated medical standards. Common birth injuries linked to malpractice include:

  • Anoxia — Complete lack of oxygen, may cause brain damage
  • Cerebral palsy — Muscle stiffness causing diminished strength and jerky movement
  • Bone fractures — The baby’s collarbone is especially vulnerable to breaking during rough delivery
  • Brachial plexus injury (Erb’s palsy) — Bruising or tearing of the cluster of nerves that governs arm movement
  • Hypoxia — Lack of adequate oxygen, may lead to brain damage

Thorough investigation of medical errors during delivery

Our injury attorneys examine hospital records, interview witnesses and consult qualified experts in delivery protocols to uncover any and all evidence of medical negligence, including:

  • Failure to treat the mother for preeclampsia
  • Allowing prolonged labor before ordering a C-section
  • Misusing a vacuum extractor
  • Allowing the baby to be asphyxiated
  • Failure to diagnose an infant’s infection, such as meningitis

If a healthcare provider committed an error that harmed your baby, The Matassini Law Firm is determined to prove negligence and obtain the maximum possible compensation.

The resources to provide quality representation for the length of your case

Whether your case involves medical malpractice, an auto accident or a wrongful death, your attorney must be prepared to take the case all the way through trial to verdict. Many personal injury attorneys advance the cost of litigation, so they can only last so long before financial pressures start to mount. As a client, you have to wonder whether an attorney's advice to settle your case reflects the quality of the offer or your attorneys need to get paid. Fortunately, The Matassini Law Firm has the resources to pursue civil verdicts and settlements that reflect the actual value of your case.
