Did medical malpractice cause your child’s injuries?
You may feel overwhelmed as you try to make sense of you and your child’s situation – anger, anxiety, sadness and confusion are a normal part of the process.
Amidst this emotional upheaval, you may wonder if natural factors or a doctor’s mistake or carelessness caused your child’s medical condition. This may be especially true if you’re left with a nagging feeling that something went wrong during your prenatal care or during your child’s delivery.
Our team can help answer your questions by examining the facts of your case and conducting a thorough investigation into the pre- and post-natal care provided.
Examples of medical negligence or error resulting in birth injury include:
- failure to diagnose and/or treat a dangerous prenatal condition, such as gestational diabetes or a larger-than-average baby;
- a doctor prescribing a dangerous prescription drug during pregnancy;
- a pharmacist dispensing an incorrect drug to a pregnant mother;
- delayed emergency C-section;
- failure to anticipate or respond to conditions leading to delayed, prolonged or otherwise difficult labor;
- failure to monitor a baby’s oxygen levels during labor and delivery and post-delivery;
- surgical error during C-section;
- excessive use of force during difficult delivery; and
- failure to use established birthing protocol to respond to difficult or dangerous labor conditions.
We will examine hospital and medical records, witness statements and other evidence to determine if negligence occurred and who is liable for your child’s injury.
