Birth injuries and medical malpractice: You deserve answers

Negligence during the birth of your child could cause irreversible harm. You've chosen your obstetrics and gynecological care provider for the care you'll receive; not receiving the attention and help you thought you would can be traumatic. When that negligence leads to harm to you, your child, or both, that's when you need to make a claim through your attorney for medical malpractice.

Birth injuries are not the same as birth defects. Some issues your child may face may not be preventable. Things like genetic defects simply can't be prevented in many cases. However, problems like asphyxiation can generally be prevented if the right care is provided. For example, if your child is struggling for oxygen during delivery, an emergency C-section may be something an OB-GYN should offer. If you're ignored, made to wait, or otherwise mistreated, that could cost your child his or her life or future.

Most of the time, a medical malpractice lawsuit is only filed when a doctor fails to respond in an adequate manner to issues with your health or the health of your child. Malpractice occurs when your doctor doesn't do what others would have, putting your life at risk or potentially risking your child's life. Most OB-GYNs are trained to a high level, so women shouldn't have to worry about problems like negligence or malpractice, but mistakes are sometimes made. Doctors need to be held accountable when they aren't working up to an appropriate standard.
