West Virginia Birth Injury Lawyer
Bringing a new life into the world is an event to be revered and rejoiced. The ability of the doctor or qualified medical professional to safely deliver your child should be the farthest thing from your mind. It is sad truth however that the people professionally responsible for the safe delivery of a child do make mistakes. Oxygen deficiency during labor (IUH) is fortuitously one of the less prevalent of these complications resulting from malpractice, however it is one of the more severe and potentially traumatic in the long-term sense. There are many possible conditions resulting from IUH that could very well be the responsibility of the attending medical professional during childbirth.
There are reasons a child may experience oxygen deficiency during childbirth that are out of the doctors control such as placental abruption and uterine cord prolapse. However there are many other complications that, if managed correctly by the attending medical professional, can be identified and corrected. It is required of these professionals to apply their knowledge of uterine rupture, shoulder dystocia, umbilical cord complications, breech deliveries, and so on in order to minimize the harm done to the baby by IUH. If you feel that your child was hurt because the attending medical professional did not apply their knowledge in the most effective way, an expert in birth injury law is necessary.
