Birth Injury Litigation Lawyer
While a mother is pregnant, she and her child are in the care of her physician. The physician is responsible for making sure that both mother and child are safe at all times and to report anything out of the ordinary. Many birth injuries are not necessarily evident at the time of birth, the child may have complications as childhood progresses. More likely than not, birth injury occurs months to years after birth and typically goes undetected.
A good percentage of women use anesthesia when giving birth, but what most women do not realize is that anesthesia is a top 10 contender of pregnancy related birth injury. Anesthesia related injuries stem only from the physician. It is his or her responsibility to ensure that the mother is receiving the correct amount of anesthesia and that the baby will be safe at all times. While there are many different ways a birth injury can occur, while in the physicians care a few others may arise such as failure to treat conditions during pregnancy, an overuse of vacuum extraction, failure to order a Cesarian section and failure to change the position of the baby during birth. A birth injury or trauma that is untreated may result in large medical bills, emotional stress and most importantly an altered life for both the child and your family.
