How negligent medical personnel, facilities, and processes lead to birth injuries
A negligent doctor and birth injuries can lead to injuries during pregnancy, during labor and delivery, or shortly after childbirth.
Birth injuries and medical malpractice occur when a physician acts negligently and fails to uphold the standard quality of medical care that’s required of medical professionals.
When doctors and nurses fall below the level of expected quality of care, the result can be newborn injuries that require special treatment that can cost a fortune.
Some birth injuries occurring due to doctor negligence include:
- Forceps delivery injury
- Vacuum extraction injury
- Failing to properly manage fetal distress
- Improper management of maternal infections
- Administering unsafe medications to the infant
- Failing to perform an emergency C-section
- Failing to monitor and control oxygen intake
- Resuscitation errors
That's why those parents with infants that have suffered injuries due to medical malpractice are encouraged to come forward and receive a private case evaluation with the potential to file a claim for compensation.
Reports and studies of birth injury cases are on the rise
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), about 7 in every 1,000 children will suffer from a birth injury.
All too often, when children are born with life-changing medical conditions that require special treatment and expensive care, the negligence of doctors and nurses is to blame.
The 10 most common birth injuries include:
- Broken Bones
- Caput Succedaneum
- Intracranial hemorrhage
- Subconjunctival hemorrhage
- Brachial Plexus Injury
- Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE)
- Spinal cord injuries
- Cerebral Palsy
When physicians and their support staff deliver the quality of care below what is expected, newborns are left with permanent injuries and their parents with a lifelong cost of care.
Other critical birth injury statistics show:
- Hospitals and doctors’ offices nationwide may have avoided nearly 2,000 patient deaths if medical staff and patients had better communication
- 37% of all high-severity injury cases involved a failure in communication
- 33% of obstetrics-related malpractice cases involved communication errors
- Cerebral palsy is the most common type of birth injury diagnosed, with about 4 out of every 1000 babies born suffering from the condition.
- Problems with nursing intervention during labor and delivery account for about 5% of birth injury claims against nurses.
For parents with infants that have suffered the trauma of a birth-related injury, it is possible to file a claim to receive fair compensation.
We believe that newborn victims of birth injuries and their families should be able to address the facilities and medical personnel and get compensation and justice.
