Birth is a traumatic experience, and minor injuries are not uncommon. However, medical negligence can result in serious birth injuries that could have been prevented. Birth injuries that sometimes occur as a result of medical malpractice include:
Birth injury claims are a type of medical malpractice claim and not limited to medical doctors. Potentially liable parties may include nurses, anesthesiologists, hospitals, and other healthcare facilities and medical providers. Hospitals may be held liable for birth injuries directly for their own negligence, or vicariously for the negligence of their employees. However, this is not the case when physicians are independent contractors, rather than employees of the hospital. A pharmaceutical company may be liable for birth injuries if a drug caused the injuries, but only if the manufacturer failed to warn doctors of its potential dangers and side effects.
Serious birth injuries can cause lifelong disabilities and require years of medical treatment. If your child was injured at birth and you believe or suspect it resulted from medical malpractice, contact The Janda Law Firm right away.
