Indiana Delivery Room Errors Attorneys
Delivery Room Errors
Soon-to-be parents plan and prepare for the arrival of a baby with joy and excitement. But that excitement can soon turn to grief and pain if a personal injury or error occurs during labor and delivery.
Many women opt to deliver their babies at hospitals in a medical setting with trained medical professionals providing care. These professionals can include an obstetrician, a midwife, and nursing staff in the labor and delivery unit. In the case of a Cesarean birth (or C-section), a mother and her baby may also interact with surgical staff, the anesthetist and other medical professionals.
Are You the Victim of a Delivery Room Malpractice?
These professionals are trusted partners in the birthing process until something goes wrong. Injury or pain caused to a mother or her baby could be the result of actions taken by a negligent health care professional. In addition, during the time following the birth, proper care for the baby and mother is essential.
If a doctor or nurse makes a rash decision or the wrong choice in the care of you or your baby, serious and lifelong repercussions can result.
We cannot begin to understand the grief and pain you may be experiencing, but at Baker Law Team, we will listen closely to your story and ask questions to determine whether we can provide a means to seek compensation from the medical practitioners on your behalf.
