What Is Obstetrical Malpractice?

A birth injury is generally defined as an injury suffered by mother or baby before, during, or immediately after childbirth. It may or may not be related to obstetrical malpractice, which is defined as a failure to provide standard care to mother and/or baby during pregnancy, labor, delivery, or immediately thereafter.

When a birth injury could have been prevented had a nurse, OB/GYN, or other medical professional provided standard care, this gives a family grounds to pursue legal action. This opens the door to recovering financial compensation that could pay for a child’s lifelong care.
