Answers to Your Questions & Suspicions
Discovering that your newborn has a serious medical problem is devastating. Many parents feel overwhelmed, confused, and uncertain.

Medical Malpractice & Birth Injuries
Medical malpractice is the cause of some birth injuries. It occurs when nurses, midwives, obstetricians, or anesthesiologists fail to provide the standard level of medical care before, during or after childbirth. However, patients often do not have the expertise or experience to ask the right questions or observe the correct details when it comes to their medical care. What may seem like an act of God may have actually been the result of a very human mistake.
Questions our firm knows to ask regarding birth injury cases include:
- Did the staff fail to identify fetal distress on the fetal heart monitor?
- Did they fail to take prompt action to prevent brain damage from lack of oxygen to the baby?
- Did the obstetrician carefully track and treat any existing or developing medical conditions, including high blood pressure and gestational diabetes?
- Were staff alert to problems during delivery, such as wrong positioning, stalled or prolonged labor, or too large a baby to be delivered vaginally?
- Did they delay a cesarean section too long?
