Life-Changing Decisions, Lifelong Effects

At Gillis & Bikofsky, our experience with catastrophic birth injuries caused by medical negligence, and our ability to impart their full effects to jury members are invaluable assets that make a real difference.

Obtaining Fair Compensation for Victims of Birth Trauma Since 1988

Most of us can convince ourselves that we have the ability to accomplish certain things or do certain activities — even if we haven’t done them before. That’s called confidence.

Similarly, when faced with a problem, most of us have little difficulty talking ourselves into one solution or into the absolute certainty that our approach to solving that problem is right. That’s called overconfidence.

And when it happens in the delivery room, it can be deadly.

Our firm helps victims of negligently-caused birth trauma in the Boston area and throughout eastern Massachusetts to recover the compensation they need to rebuild their lives. We handle birth injuries caused by:

  • Improper prenatal care
  • Failure to diagnose fetal distress
  • Failure to diagnose distress in the mother
  • Forceps injury
  • Hypoxic/anoxic brain injuries
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Shoulder dystocia (Erb’s palsy)
  • Failure to perform a C-section
  • Other negligent acts
