Personal Injury Compensation
Babies who sustain injuries from the labor and delivery process can suffer the effects of those injuries their entire lives. Obstetricians, nurses, and other birthing personnel are expected to facilitate competent and careful deliveries. Medical malpractice lawsuits can be brought against them if their negligence led to birth injuries that otherwise could have been prevented. For example, birth injuries could result from their failure to monitor and adjust the baby’s oxygen level or from the improper use of devices such as forceps or vacuums. It is the doctor’s responsibility to gauge factors that could lead to birth injury, such as the size of the baby and the mother’s pelvis shape, and prepare for them accordingly.
