Labor and Delivery Problems
The birth of a child is supposed to be one of the happiest days in a parent’s life. In most cases, the childbirth process takes place without incident or complications. However, when a medical professional makes an error during the labor and delivery process, the consequences can be devastating for the mother and the child. At Arfaa Law Group, our Baltimore birth injury lawyers compassionately advise and represent victims and their families who are struggling with the harm caused by a health care provider’s negligence.Assert Your Right to Compensation for Injuries Caused by Labor and Delivery Problems
Labor and delivery injuries include brain trauma, birth fractures, shoulder dystocia, nerve injuries, soft tissue tears, and death. These injuries may be caused by forceps errors, vacuum errors, and failures to order a C-section in a timely manner. Physicians, nurses, and other labor and delivery professionals are qualified to recognize symptoms of fetal distress and should respond accordingly. If your child’s injury was caused by an error made by a medical professional, you may be able to file a birth injury claim against one or more at-fault parties.
In the context of a birth injury or another form of medical malpractice, negligence occurs when a medical professional causes harm to a patient by doing or failing to do something that a competent medical professional in the same specialty would have done under the same or similar circumstances. In each claim, it is important to establish that this deviation from the standard of care was a direct and proximate cause of the birth injury. Since medical malpractice cases tend to be particularly complicated, expert testimony plays a key role in tracing the connection from carelessness in the childbirth process to the conditions from which the child later suffers.
While no amount of money can fully compensate you for the suffering that is caused by a birth injury, it can help ease the burden of the expenses that often accumulate after such an incident. Maryland law allows victims of medical malpractice to seek damages for their harm, including hospital bills, past and future medical expenses, prescription and rehabilitation costs, pain and suffering, and more.Seek Representation from a Knowledgeable Baltimore Lawyer
