Birth injuries are some of the most unfortunate outcomes of medical negligence. An obstetrical team, including an OB-GYN, nurses and technicians, owes every patient a duty of care.
Pursue Help For Your Child After A Birth Injury Has Resulted In Lasting Harm
You and your child may be eligible for compensation if:
- A fetal monitor was not used correctly or was ignored during labor — and your baby suffered a hypoxic brain injury.
- Risk factors such as pre-eclampsia were not diagnosed during prenatal care, and preventive actions such as a C-section were not planned for or carried out.
- A home birth service failed to plan for emergency transfers to a hospital in case of unexpected complications during labor or delivery.
- Your premature infant went blind because of improper overdosing of oxygen in an incubator.
- Your child has spasms or poor muscle control because of cerebral palsy occurring after an OB-GYN failed to deliver your baby by C-section, as indicated.
- A high-risk condition visible after birth (such as jaundice) did not receive proper attention and care, and your baby suffered harm as a result.
