When A Joyous Occasion Turns Tragic
While adding a new member to the family is typically a happy time in your life, it is commonly beset by worry, frustration, and confusion. Parents-to-be turn to medical professionals to answer their questions and alleviate their fears through care and attention. Unfortunately, it is also not uncommon for mistakes to happen and fetal distress to be overlooked. Whether errors were made during prenatal care or during the birth process, both mother and baby can face life-threatening negligence.
Failure to perform a timely Cesarean section, use of faulty medical devices, failure to recognize a mother’s health issues — these are all situations that can lead to severe injuries and life-changing conditions. Our firm prepare themselves to represent parents struggling through injuries such as:
- Shoulder dystocia
- Forceps injuries
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Brachial plexus injuries
- Pitocin-induced injuries
- Hypoxic injuries
Many of these injuries will require a lifetime of expensive medical care, lifestyle changes and the pain of a family watching a child live with a degenerative condition. It is also critical that you pursue financial stability via monetary compensation from those responsible for these dramatic consequences.
