Negligence During Childbirth

The thought of being a victim of medical malpractice may be enough to scare you into learning more about the doctors you trust and the hospitals you visit. This is particularly true if you are pregnant and worried about the future health of your baby.

Negligence during childbirth is a serious concern. If a doctor or other medical professional makes an error during childbirth, it could result in an injury to the baby. Furthermore, it could harm the mother as well.

Some of the most common childbirth medical errors include:

  • Failure to recognize and respond to fetal distress
  • Failure to anticipate potential complications
  • Failure to order a C-section in a timely manner
  • Improper use of delivery tools

You have enough going on when you are pregnant that you don’t want to be concerned about medical malpractice. That said, do your best to choose a medical professional and facility you can trust.

In the event of negligence during childbirth, it is essential to get your infant the medical attention he or she needs. From there, you can contact us to learn more about your legal rights.
