Advocacy for Families Who Were Hurt in the Birthing Process

St. Paul Birth Injury Lawyers

The birth of a child should be a happy time. Yet even when obstetricians, nurses, medical techs, and other medical caregivers make every effort to be sure the baby is healthy and no harm is caused to him or her, sometimes birth injury does occur. This is devastating to the parents and family. It is crucial that an experienced personal injury lawyer is contacted as soon as birth injury has occurred when the records and recollections are fresh. We have experience with birth injuries related to the diagnosis of preeclampsia and cerebral palsy.

Two Types of Injuries Can Occur During Birth/Delivery

  • Lack of oxygen to the brain can cause lifelong disability. Though it is normal for a small measure of asphyxia or hypoxia to occur during the delivery process, significant negligence can lead to significant brain injuries. When the umbilical cord is compressed or separated, the placenta separates before delivery, or the uterus ruptures, swift action must be taken. Injury can be minimized if the baby is delivered by c-section within 15 to 20 minutes. Many times, however, more than 30 minutes go by before the emergency cesarean is done.
  • Trauma during delivery can be devastating to the baby. In most births, a certain level of trauma occurs with little, if any, lasting effects. Even when the best of care is being given and everyone is performing the child delivery task properly, minor bruising can happen. Determining if the trauma is due to actual malpractice requires an experienced lawyer who understands birth injuries and what steps need to be taken.

Bennerotte & Associates, P.A., can help you determine if medical errors may support a malpractice action.

Signs of Medical Malpractice During Birth / Delivery

  • Anesthesia errors
  • Failure to respond appropriately to bleeding
  • Failure to anticipate complications that may occur during delivery
  • Deferment or delay in ordering a cesarean section when clearly medically necessary
  • Failure to observe and respond to umbilical cord entrapment or complications.
  • Failure to respond to fetal distress, including fetal heartbeat irregularities
  • Inappropriate administration of Pitocin (synthetic hormone for inducing/speeding up labor)
  • Post-birth errors including mistakes in performing a circumcision, failure to tend to infection, etc.
