Childbirth and pregnancy are two of the most celebrated parts of a family’s life. However, this can be a tremendous challenge if a new parent has to face an injury to themselves or their child as the result of an error made by your doctor, gynecologist, obstetrician, or hospital. If your infant is hurt, he or she may be faced with lifetime pain, suffering, or emotional damage due to physical deformities. The sad fact is that many parents are not even told about these injuries until well after and in some cases these caretakers have not even diagnosed these problems until it is too late. Just as sad, there are cases where the mother herself faces injuries after the miracle of birth.
There have been cases where sponges or other implements are left inside of her, which can lead to infections or even death. In other cases, she was given too large of doses of medications or had a poorly trained or negligent anesthesiologist. These can result in severe injury or even death, leaving her partner and newborn alone when they should be a happy, healthy family. Our firm specializes in determining who is responsible for these errors and holding them to task. We work closely with the physicians, nurses, nursing care specialists, LVN’s, and others to get to the bottom of the case.
