Fatal Birth Injuries
Complications are common in pregnancy, labor and postpartum care. Some losses are unpreventable and can be blamed on no one. Some birth injuries, however, can be directly linked to errors made by obstetricians, OB/GYNs, nurses, technicians and other medical staff. Birth injuries that can lead to the wrongful death of a child include:
- Hypoxia or lack of oxygen to the brain
- Delayed C-section
- Forceps injuries
- Medication errors
- Failure to diagnose
- Untreated infections
Pursuing a wrongful death claim for the death of a child can accomplish a number of important goals. It can provide grieving family members with compensation for medical bills, emotional grief and other damages. Furthermore, it can hold responsible parties accountable for their actions, and deter them and others in their position from making the same mistakes in the future. No legal action can replace what you have lost, but it can make the world safer for others.
