Do You Need an Attorney for a Birth Injury Case?

Birth injury cases are emotional and incredibly difficult for parents. In these situations, parents need an advocate by their side who can bring the resources and the legal expertise necessary to handle every aspect of these cases.  At the same time, they need someone who understands the difficult, life-changing situation parents are going through.

A New Haven birth injury attorney will be that advocate. An attorney can conduct a complete investigation into the incident in order to determine liability. This will include bringing in help from medical experts who can evaluate the child and look at the medical records to determine what happened. An attorney will proceed to handle all negotiations involving compensation while also fully preparing the case for trial to ensure the parents and child are treated fairly throughout this process.

The Long-Term Consequences of Birth Injuries

Birth injuries often occur due to the negligence of a doctor or nurse during the delivery process or shortly after the birth occurs. In general, obstetricians will have overall responsibility during the delivery process, and these are highly trained medical professionals. They are required to maintain the standard of care that other similarly trained obstetricians would exercise in similar situations.

Birth injuries can occur in a wide variety of ways, in the most common causes revolve around:

  • The failure to perform a C-section when the symptoms and situation indicate one is needed
  • The failure to recognize either fetal or maternal distress
  • The misuse of forceps, vacuum devices, or other tools during the delivery
  • The failure to recognize breeched births or prolapsed unbillable cords

Unfortunately, these mistakes can lead to significant long-term health consequences for a child. Some of the most common birth injuries include bone fractures, meconium aspiration, brain bleeds, loss of oxygen, nerve damage, and more.
