Medical Malpractice Resulting in Birth Injury
If you have experienced a birth injury, you may have had a medical professional attempt to convince you that it was simply an accident. However, when accidents result in serious birth injuries, an apology does not suffice. You are entitled to compensation for your loss. Medical malpractice means that the doctors or nurses involved during your childbirth have either acted negligently by performing an improper act, or failing to act, which results in harm. Because this type of negligence can result in significant lifelong damages, you have rights.
Types of Birth Injuries
Medical malpractice covers a wide range of birth injuries, some of which you may not realize are common results of negligence:
- Injury to the Child: This includes harm to your child, including cerebral palsy, shoulder dystocia (Erb’s Palsy), Klumpe’s Palsy, and jaundice.
- Injury to the Mother
- Wrongful Birth: Wrongful birth means that a mother has given birth when the parents would have ended the pregnancy if they had been properly informed of a birth defect. The doctor’s fault includes the failure to detect impairment, or negligent genetic testing.
- Negligent Pregnancy: This type of negligence involves failure of abortion, pregnancy testing problems, or sterilization.
