Our West Hartford Medical Malpractice Law Firm Gets Answers
When parents are informed their child suffers from some form of birth defect, they want answers. How did this happen? Was negligence involved? How will this birth injury affect my child?
Birth injuries may occur when a physician does not respond properly to a condition or problem arising during pregnancy, labor, or delivery. It may be a failure to perform a Cesarean section (c-section) when tests indicated it as the best choice. Injury could result from the improper use of instrumentation, like forceps, in aiding delivery. It may be an incomplete assessment of an infant's health during pregnancy. And, sometimes birthing complications are not detectable until months later. This occurs periodically when a child is not given sufficient oxygen during labor and cerebral palsy results. Cerebral palsy is not always apparent at birth.
Many scenarios create the possibility of negligence and, thus birth injuries. It is important to work with a medical malpractice attorney who understands the complexity of birth injury negligence litigation.
