Surgical errors and neligence are not acceptable in hospitals

When you're expecting a child, you want the delivery to go as smoothly as possible. The last thing you expect is for a surgical error to put the mother's life at risk or to reduce your child's chance of survival. Fortunately, if you find yourself in a difficult situation where you think negligence played a role, you have options you can pursue.

There are a few things that you can do to recognize medical malpractice during delivery. Think about the situation; were you sickly for some time, but no one took the time to properly diagnose you? Did this impact the health of your child? That could be a sign of negligence.

Failing to treat a child when needed during delivery can result in serious problems, too, like a lack of oxygen reaching the brain. This could lead to some kind of injuries such as cerebral palsy, which can make a child have difficulty with his or her muscles and movements. Negligence during delivery could result in unnecessary pain or risky emergency operations that could have been avoided, too.

It's important to hold hospitals and doctors responsible for the care of their patients. No doctor should be able to ignore the obvious signs of fetal distress or a mother's failing health. These are things an obstetrics and gynecology-trained surgeon should be familiar with and ready to deal with in an emergency. Our website has more information about negligence and medical malpractice, so you can learn more about the steps you can take to seek compensation after you've been injured while giving birth.
