Dangers of Newborn Infection

Parents expect nothing short of the best medical treatment during every stage of their child’s delivery. While most deliveries are performed safely by experienced and well-trained medical professionals, medical negligence and malpractice does sometimes occur and may result in a number of birth injuries, including serious infection. As this occurrence is highly preventable, newborn infections are particularly troubling.

If your newborn experienced an infection due to improper treatment during delivery, there is recourse for you to pursue compensation. The New Hampshire newborn infection lawyers at Crowe & Mulvey, LLP, are committed to holding negligent medical professionals financially accountable for their actions.

Commonly Reported Newborn Infections

Should a medical professional make a misstep during a delivery or otherwise behave negligently, newborns may develop one of the following serious infections:

  • Viral Respiratory Infections
  • Group B Streptococcus
  • Toxoplasmosis
  • Herpes Simplex
  • Cytomegalovirus
  • Bacterial Infections

The effect of any one of these infections may be life-long for your child, necessitating a number of medical treatments or medication. When the negligence of a medical professional or institution has resulted in a newborn developing an infection, that individual or facility may be held financially liable for their actions.
