Complications that occur in pregnancy or during labor and delivery are referred to as “birth injuries.” Birth complications and injuries may change the life of a family forever. Our Chicago birth injury lawyers and staff have years of experience providing compassionate and skilled representation to families affected by birth injuries caused by medical malpractice or other medical mistakes.
COMPLICATIONS THAT CAUSE BIRTH INJURY
Approximately three in every 100 births have a serious complication. Causes of birth injuries and birth trauma are varied, but some of the most common are:
- Delay in ordering a cesarean section
- Failure to respond to bleeding
- Failure to respond to umbilical cord entrapment
- Failure to respond to fetal distress
- Misuse of vacuum extractors or forceps
- Poor care of newborn immediately following birth
- Miscommunication between doctors and nurses
Birth injuries cause devastating effects on each member of the family. Many birth injuries are life long and require the family to take special care and make special provisions for their child. This type of care is very expensive and time consuming and puts emotional and financial stress on the entire family. Contact our birth injury lawyers in Chicago today for free legal advice.
