Pregnancy Complications | Labor and Delivery | Childbirth
Labor and delivery can become difficult when birth complications arise. For this reason, the medical field has established accepted medical practices to protect the wellbeing of the mother and baby. Yet, when medical professionals handle labor and delivery without adhering to accepted medical practices, they may cause serious injury to the mother or baby. In such instances, grounds may exist for a medical malpractice lawsuit. An attorney with access to medical experts has the wherewithal to discover whether medical negligence was the underlying cause of injuries.
As a parent, while you may have your suspicions, you will not know explicitly whether medical malpractice was a factor. It is wise to consult with an experienced medical malpractice lawyer as soon as possible to actually determine whether medical negligence occurred.
It is important to be aware of signs that under certain circumstances often indicate negligence. Here are a few factors:
Brain damage, strokes caused by blood clotting, and infected amniotic fluid can result from a failure to deliver a baby in a timely manner.
If you suspect your hospital birth involved errors that resulted in serious injury, consult with a lawyer. An attorney can take legal action to help you recover compensation for personal injury, medical expenses, pain and suffering and other related damages.
