Experienced Representation for Birth Injury Cases - (641) 812-2041
Birth injuries are just one of the many possible results of medical malpractice. Birth injuries are extremely serious, and have the potential to permanently affect a child's quality of life. If your child has suffered a birth injury due to medical malpractice by a doctor or hospital, you have the right to file a medical malpractice claim against the responsible parties to recover damages.
How Do Birth Injuries Occur?
Birth injuries typically occur during the delivery or birth process when the delivering physician or medical team does not act appropriately follow the accepted medical standards of care. Lack of oxygen to the baby's brain during delivery (hypoxia or asphyxia) may lead to significant birth injuries.
If there is an unnecessary delay in the delivery due to failing to correctly interpret the monitor strips, due to failing to do a caesarean section delivery rather than a vaginal delivery, or due to some other reasons, a birth injury to the brain or other parts of the body may occur. Birth injuries also occur when the umbilical cord is compressed during delivery, the placenta separates before delivery or the uterus is ruptured. If the baby is not delivered quickly under these emergencies, a significant injury affecting the brain will most likely occur.
The sad reality is that many birth injuries ultimately result in death. If your child has died due to a birth injury, we can help you file a wrongful death claim against the hospital or doctor responsible.
