When Doctors Are Negligent
All medical professionals are expected to be attentive, alert, and prepared
to respond to any complications that arise. The reality is that even the
smallest mistake or delay during labor and delivery can be detrimental
to the health and well-being of you and your child. When a doctor's
misstep results in a birth injury, he or she must be held accountable.
Negligent acts that can cause birth injuries include:
Failure to perform necessary C-section
Failure to monitor oxygen to the mother or child
Failure to diagnose and treat complications
Misuse of birthing tools, such as forceps or vacuums
Failure to monitor hemorrhaging
Of course, not all birth injuries are the result of malpractice. Some injuries
are actually defects, caused by the child's DNA or other hereditary
factors. However, these conditions can be worsened or furthered by a doctor's
inability to correctly respond to and treat them. Thus, it is essential
to have an accomplished injury lawyer on your side to fight for your right
