Fortunately, there is legal help available to parents and their children. Our lawyers seek maximum compensation for birth injuries.

Medical Staff Members Are Supposed To Follow Protocol

There are many steps nurses and obstetricians can take to ensure the safety of the baby. Among these steps are paying proper attention to fetal monitoring strips, noticing distress in the mother or fetus, and either relaying this information to the appropriate person or taking immediate action.

Brain Injuries

Sadly, brain injuries are among the most common injuries that occur to babies during the birthing process. Fetal monitoring strips track, among other vitals, a fetus's oxygen. When a fetus is deprived of oxygen, immediate action such as performing a C-section must be taken to prevent brain injury. When this fetal distress goes unnoticed or a C-section is not performed in a timely fashion, brain damage can occur.

Injuries are not limited to brain injuries and can include shoulder dystocia, jaundice, and conditions that could have been prevented with a simple blood test.
