Providence Birth Injury Attorneys

Every year, 28,000 children are born with a birth injury or birth defect, and unfortunately they are most prevalent in New England, including Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut. Large or small, those injuries can have devastating effects on both the child and the family: physically, financially and emotionally.

During that time of crisis, many parents believe that filing a birth injury lawsuit would simply add to their stress. But the question most parents want answered is “what happened.” At the Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, we take particular care to worry about the details in a birth injury case so that our clients can simply care for their children.

Many birth injuries or birth defects are a result of medical malpractice, which is a form of negligence, and they can take many different forms. Sometimes, they are the result of inadequate planning by medical professionals, while other times they can be the result of failure to act on signs of distress. Further, many birth injuries occur due to use of excessive force during delivery, including the use of forceps and vacuums to assist in delivery.

At the Resmini law offices, our lawyers have 45 years of practice experience, literally representing thousands of people who have been harmed by the actions of another in birth defect and birth injury cases. Each member of the Resmini law firm has received accolades in Rhode Island, Connecticut and Massachusetts dedicated to only a few in the profession. In short, we are skilled and experienced in seeing a birth injury and birth defect cases through, from the moment a client walks into our office until its resolution, either by trial or settlement.

As we mentioned, we know that birth injuries can be emotionally and financially devastating. While nothing can cure the harm done, our clients in birth injury cases regularly recover:

  • Past, current, and future medical expenses
  • Healthcare costs associated with rehabilitation, therapy, counseling, and specialized medical equipment
  • Pain, suffering, and emotional distress
  • Lost wages due to providing care for the disabled child
  • Loss of enjoyment and companionship

One of the questions we are asked most often is, “how much will I end up getting, and is it worth my time?” Every case is different, compensation will depend on the type of injury, its severity and what type of plan is in place to care for the infant as he or she grows older.

In addition, there may be caps in your state that dictate a maximum amount of compensation allowed in medical malpractice cases. But, rest assured we know the law, and we always work to ensure that our clients receive what is fair. And if it is not worth your time, we will tell you that too.

The Resmini Law Offices is a well-respected firm completely dedicated to helping clients who are injured recover what is due. We are proud to have served clients in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Florida for 45 years.
