The birth of a child is one of the most beautiful events that we can witness and experience, but what happens when that moment turns into a nightmare?
Many unexpected situations could occur during the labor and delivery process, including unavoidable injuries to the parent giving birth or baby. However, harm may be preventable. If you or your child suffered a preventable birth injury, it’s vital to speak with a qualified attorney to investigate if you have a medical malpractice claim.
While the majority of injuries during birth happen to the child such as Cephalohematoma (bleeding under the baby’s scalp), Neonatal Brachial Plexus Palsy (damage to nerves near the baby’s shoulder), Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (brain disorder due to lack of oxygen), and bone fractures, some injuries can occur to the person giving birth.
If you are considering filing a medical malpractice suit over harm resulting from the mistake of a health care provider during labor and delivery, we suggest discussing your case with our expert legal team. At Loutos Law Firm, we will not settle for anything less than what you and your child deserve.
Injuries To The Mother During Labor And Delivery
While the majority of birth injuries impact the child, mothers can also be harmed if a doctor does not take proper action during childbirth. Medical negligence resulting in injuries to the mother include:
Leaving disposable medical supplies or medical equipment inside the mother after a cesarean section
Undetected or untreated preeclampsia that results in a mother’s seizure during delivery
Complications from anesthesia
Damage to a mother’s internal organs due to surgical instruments during a cesarean section
Failure to control bleeding
