Birth Injury Caused By Medical Negligence

December 16, 2012

Medical negligence is one common cause of birth injuries. Errors include failing to respond promptly to various birth complications such as:

Excessive bleeding;

The baby being tangled in the umbilical cord;

Not responding to fetal distress in a timely manner; and

Failing to anticipate complications, especially if the mother experienced problems during pregnancy, during previous births or where the baby is unusually large.

Medical negligence and error can also occur after the birth; for example, if medical personnel failed to stem an infection in time.  Birth injuries caused by medical negligence are complex and emotional cases.  If you have a child that you suspect sustained avoidable birth injuries, we suggest that you consult with experienced attorneys who can help you and your child recover compensation, which will help to care for your child in the long term.
