When you’re expecting, your pregnancy is an exciting life journey you never forget. Moreover, you and your family plan your future around a healthy child, dreaming of what’s to come. However, as your local birth trauma lawyer, I know how hope turns into despair when birth injuries occur.
Birth Trauma Lawyer Explains Preventable Birth Injuries
As your birth trauma lawyer, I serve Southwest Florida—Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Bonita Springs, Estero, Naples, Lehigh Acres, LaBelle, Fort Myers Beach, Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte, North Port, Venice—and our local neighbors. And, I know every parent hopes for their unborn child is safe and healthy upon birth.
However, medical errors may result in severe injuries. Especially relevant, some babies are born with major brain or nerve damage. Furthermore, cerebral palsy may result from mistakes during pregnancy and labor and delivery.
Moreover, as your birth trauma lawyer, I know many newborn injuries are preventable. Doctors, hospitals, nurses, and midwives must provide proper monitoring and treatment. For example, before labor and delivery, there are procedures and tests doctors may use to determine risks to baby and mother.
In addition, high-risk pregnancies need early and prompt evaluations. When these risks exist, a maternal-fetal medicine specialist should participate in mom’s care. As an experienced birth trauma lawyer, I know many mistakes are identifiable in your medical chart.
Birth Trauma Lawyer Knows Errors can Occur During Pregnancy or Delivery
Especially relevant, timely and accurate risk diagnosis and assessment is critical your health and your baby’s well-being during labor and delivery. For example, neonatal specialists, including doctors and nurses, should provide post-delivery care when certain signs and symptoms exist. Moreover, an obstetrician’s failing to recognize these problems, or a nurse’s misreading a fetal monitor, can lead to permanent injuries.
In my experience as your birth trauma lawyer, I know complications during birth may also extend to immediate post-delivery needs. For example, mishandling a newborn may cause facial paralysis, fractures, and nerve damage. Accordingly, any damage or injury to a baby caused by a negligent doctor should be considered when deciding if a medical malpractice lawsuit is appropriate.
Some more examples include incorrectly using forceps or vacuum extractor during delivery. As your birth trauma lawyer, I know this may result in brachial plexus injury or Erb’s Palsy. Moreover, in other cases, doctors may not act quickly enough when a baby lacks oxygen. Finally, doctors and nurses may administer incorrect doses of labor-inducing drugs.
