The process of birth and delivery is intrinsically dangerous to both mother and child. It is precisely because of this inherent danger that doctors, nurses and hospital staff must take the most stringent precautions for the safety of mothers and babies in the delivery process.
When medical professionals fail to take proper precautions in the birth and delivery process, serious injuries can result, including:
- Shoulder dystocia
- Cerebral palsy
- Hypoxic encephalopathy (brain disease)
- Pregnancy induced hyper tension (preeclampsia)
The most common error that is made by doctors and nurses is a failure to recognize and properly respond to signs of fetal distress. Through careful testing and monitoring of the mother, medical professionals can prevent many forms of birth injury.
Because the process of delivery is complicated and injuries do occur in some cases even in the absence of negligence, proving a birth injury claim is difficult. To improve your chance of successful recovery, it is critical that you retain an experienced medical malpractice attorney.
