Birth injuries are usually occasioned by the negligence of a physician or other health care provider either before or during the delivery a child. These injuries are often quite catastrophic. Under Massachusetts law, when liability is established against a hospital or a doctor for birth injuries, the damages awarded most often include payment of past and also reasonably-calculated future medical expenses and lost wages. Permanent functional impairment as well as the pain and suffering endured by the victim and his or her parents are also elements of damages.
