Using Medical Data To Strengthen Your Case
Fetal monitor strips can tell the story of birth complications. The strip is a tape that records the baby’s heart rate throughout the birthing process.
When birth complications cause serious and permanent injury to the baby, it can be important to have an Albuquerque birth complications lawyer who knows how to read the medical records and the fetal monitor strips, and get to the truth of what caused a baby’s birth injury. You are welcome to call the medical malpractice lawyers at The Law Offices of Salazar, Sullivan & Jasionowski.
Medical Negligence Can Lead To Delayed C-Sections Or Fetal Distress
For new moms and dads, it can be heartbreaking to know that your baby has a serious brain injury or a birth defect that may have been prevented if the doctor and obstetric staff had been more attentive and had made the right decisions quickly.
A delayed C-section can mean a delay in oxygen getting to the baby’s brain (hypoxia). Or if the doctor waits until it’s too late for a C-section, a distressed fetus may be injured as it is pulled from the birth canal.
