Birth Injury And Medical Malpractice
Having a child is one of the most precious moments in a parent’s life. Nothing can compare to the joy that a couple experiences when they are about to give life beginning. Pregnancy alone is tough, and every parent-to-be worries about the health and well-being of both the mother and the baby. Many things can go wrong with a pregnancy. But what if a preventable injury occurs during the birthing process? We all hope that our doctors are trustworthy individuals who always make the proper decisions when it comes to our health and wellness.
Unfortunately, in some instances, this is not the case. Some doctors are negligent when performing their regular duties and the baby/mother suffers. It’s important to know that some birth injuries are caused by complications such as an above average weight (over 8 lbs., 13 oz.). However, not all injuries are due to natural circumstances. Medical negligence & Medical Malpractice, such as failure to give necessary medical attention to the baby, delayed C-section, and the administration of improper drugs (during pregnancy or during delivery) can seriously harm to a newborn and mother.
