Factors Of Hospital Negligence During Childbirth
A safe delivery depends on quality prenatal care and precise timing. Delivery room doctors, midwives and other OB-GYN professionals are trained to monitor the fetus and evaluate the mother to determine the stage of the delivery. Medical professionals who overlook key warning signs risk putting the mother and infant in great jeopardy.
If you believe medical malpractice was a factor in your delivery room, we will act quickly to conduct a thorough investigation. The New York City labor and delivery lawyers at our firm will collect medical records to determine if medical malpractice occurred at any stage during the labor and delivery, such as:
- Failure to effectively use forceps or vacuum extractions, causing Erb’s palsy
- Delay in recognizing fetal distress, leading to permanent brain damage or wrongful death
- Delayed diagnosis or failure to treat pre-eclampsia, eclampsia, or gestational diabetes
- Failure to perform a C-section properly, leading to fetal distress and cerebral palsy (CP)
Our ability to work with industry-leading specialists helps us illustrate to jurors that doctors or nurses failed to follow standard medical procedures. We aggressively prepare all of our birth injury lawsuits for a favorable courtroom verdict.
