Responding To Avoidable Birth Injuries

There are few things harder to endure than your baby sustaining an injury during childbirth, or seeing your wife or child needlessly injured due to medical malpractice.

When a doctor, nurse, or other medical practitioner is negligent in his or her duties, you can seek some justice by holding them accountable through legal action. The financial compensation you may obtain can be used to mitigate the medical bills associated with the traumatic birth injury that mother or child has sustained.

At Mills, Mills, Fiely & Lucas, our lawyers will help you navigate the legal system during a complicated moment in your life, in which you might be facing both the joy of new parenthood and the pain of knowing that your child has entered the world with an avoidable injury.

Respond Forcefully To Medical Malpractice

You do not have to tolerate medical malpractice. We can help you seek compensation in response to a wide range of delivery complications, including:

  • Improper vacuum use: Vacuums are a useful tool in assisting the child from exiting the birth canal, but improper use can result in injury.
  • Improper forceps use: Forceps have the potential to cause head injuries as well as nerve damage in the neck and chest.
  • Delayed Cesarean Sections: Sometimes, an emergency C-section is required to deliver a baby. Recognizing when such an action is necessary requires diligent attention from medical staff.
  • Hypoxia: A tangled umbilical cord is one of several factors that can lead to a lack of oxygen in the child's brain, which in turn can cause long-term mental and physical disabilities.
