Traumatic Delivery and Birth Injuries
Despite incredible advances in labor and delivery safety, there are a number of issues that can still endanger mothers and their babies during the birthing process. Doctors and delivery room staff are responsible for attenuating these potential dangers, and if they fail to do so, it can result in a traumatic delivery that can leave a child facing permanent birth injuries. Fortunately, victims of these botched deliveries often have the option to take legal action against the negligent medical teams at fault for the injuries. If you or someone you know has had a baby suffer a birth injury due to a traumatic delivery, an experienced attorney can help you explore your legal rights and options.
Common Types of Birth Injuries
Traumatic delivery can result in a variety of injuries to a new baby. Some common effects of mishandled delivery include:
Doctors are responsible for making sure that births proceed safely, and if any problems do arise, they should take the appropriate steps to reduce any danger to the baby and mother. Failure to do so can result in long-term or even permanent birth injuries.
