What is considered negligent behavior?
Your claim will need to establish that medical negligence led to the birth injury, which can be a very complicated task. Furthermore, you will need to prove that medical staff did not provide an accepted standard of care, which ultimately led to the birth injury.
Birth injuries can result from any of the following forms of medical negligence:
- Failure to perform specialized tests during pregnancy
- Insufficient prenatal testing
- Failure to recognize and address changes in the fetus’ condition
- Improper use of a labor-inducing drug
- Failure to refer high-risk patients to specialized doctors
- Staff’s failure to communicate problems to doctors
- Failure to diagnose and/or treat birthing complications
Such carelessness can lead to all manner of complications for the child, such as cerebral palsy, facial paralysis, spinal cord damage, and many other injuries. These injuries, while not all fatal, can bring life-long medical complications for a child and their parents.
