Obstetrical Malpractice

With today’s’ “age of technology” obstetricians have more than ample access to the best training facility and the most technological advanced medical equipment to assist with the delivery of your newborn. However, despite all this modern innovation, accidents still occur in the delivery rooms, which could have otherwise been avoided. When these accidents happen, it is your precious infants’ health, whether short term or long term, that becomes at risk; it is up to your obstetrician to act quickly and carefully during this most difficult of times. If he or she becomes negligent in their actions, the obstetrician and their staffs can be held liable for any damages caused to your child.

Most obstetrical error usually causes some form of birth injuries, or can intensify the severity or permanence. Some of the more common errors, which may support a malpractice action, include:

  • Failure to anticipate birth complications
  • Failure to respond to potential bleeding
  • Failure to respond to umbilical cord entrapment
  • Failure to respond to fetal distress
  • Failure to order cesarean section appropriately
  • Misuse of forceps or a vacuum extractor
  • Failure to prescribe appropriate dosage of medication

Notwithstanding, obstetrical injuries can also occur as a result of inadequate care provided after the birth, whether it is a mistake made during circumcision, or failure to attend to potential infection. In order to determine malpractice you should have your baby’s entire medical reviewed by an independent physician or medical practitioners.
