What is Improper Fetal Monitoring?
West Virginia Birth Injury Lawyer
When an infant is being delivered, it is the responsibility of the doctors
and nurses to monitor the fetus closely, including before, during and
after delivery. A mother does not have the proper medical equipment, or
expertise to monitor things like the fetal heartbeat, and recognize signs
of fetal distress. You rely on doctors to be monitoring those things and
to act accordingly if they find something wrong. However, sometimes doctors
and nurses do not properly monitor the fetus, and as a result when the
infant is born, he or she may have sustained a debilitating birth injury
that may last a lifetime, and cost the family of the infant large sums
of money in medical expenses. If someone in your family has suffered due
to a birth injury that you believe was caused my improper fetal monitoring,

The Fitzsimmons Law Firm PLLC is dedicated to helping the victims of medical
malpractice and negligence get the compensation they deserve. If your
child suffered a birth injury, you may be laboring under extensive medical
bills that you did not plan on having to pay. The firm may be able to
get you compensation to help you pay for all medical and therapy bills,

Many birth injuries are entirely avoidable, and are a result of negligence,
and a failure to pay attention on the part of the nurses and doctors.
If there were legitimate indications that the fetus was in distress, and
these signs were largely ignored by the medical staff, you may have a
medical negligence claim.
