A parent should not have to be burdened by the reality that their child has been injured or killed during birth, especially if it is caused by negligence. Health care professionals have a duty to provide a standard of care. The birth of a child is a complicated process with many variables, but when a doctor or nurse’s medical standard of care falls below what is acceptable and it leads to injury or death of the child or the mother, he or she should be held accountable for their actions.
There numerous examples of poor medical care that can result in serious injury to a baby. If an obstetrician fails to recognize signs of fetal distress during labor, fails to take the appropriate steps when shoulder dystocia occurs during delivery or uses forceps or a vacuum improperly during delivery, the results can be tragic. The child frequently suffers injury, and often the mother suffers neurological injury or even death during delivery. Contact Trombly & Singer, PLLC to discuss your legal matter.
