Is Your Child Suffering due to Birth Injuries?

Retain a Caring Sarasota Medical Malpractice Attorney

Childbirth has never been considered easy and never will be. The mother faces fatigue and exertion like no other experience can place upon her. Worse yet, if medical teams are not careful, the child may suffer avoidable birth injuries upon delivery. A nightmare for the parents of the infant, it is important to know your rights and take steps to hold those responsible for the damage accountable. If your child has suffered birth injuries, you need to contact Attorney Maria Gerber at Gerber Law without delay.

What causes birth injuries?

Doctors and nurses often face long hours on a regular basis, which can lead to exhaustion, neglect, or the reliance on inexperienced staff members to take over duties. None of these reasons are excuses for causing birth injuries, though, and may be subject to high fines or penalty in a court of law.

Reasons a birth injury may occur include but are not limited to:

  • Mishandling: Pulling or twisting during childbirth – or mishandling medical equipment to extract the newborn – is one of the leading causes of birth injury.
  • Incorrect medication: If the mother is given inappropriate medication or administered improper dosage, the child may suffer as well.
  • Failure to monitor vital signs: Overlooking or ignoring the newborn’s vital signs for distress is a clear sign of negligence and often leads to birth injuries.
