Veteran Trial Attorney Helping Northridge Recover For Birth Injuries
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, roughly four million births occurred in the United States in 2015. And, out of this number, there were over 23,000 infant deaths. One of the leading causes the CDC lists is “maternal complications of pregnancy.”
This could be the result of:
- A medical practitioner’s failure to take action or perform a cesarean section if the fetus was in distress
- A medical practitioner’s failure to deliver a baby within 24 hours of a membrane’s rupture
- Baby was delivered breech or subject to cephalopelvic disproportion that resulted in injury
A Doctor’s Duty Of Care To You And Your Baby
Many of these are the result of doctor, nurse or negligence by a hospital professional. Under the law, it is a medical professional’s duty to provide adequate care for both mother and baby during labor and delivery. If they fail to do so and a baby is injured, they could be liable for damages to the mother and child.
