Who Is Responsible in Birth Injury Cases?
Negligence can occur anywhere. Nonetheless, it is arguably most tragic when it occurs in hospitals—the very place people go for medical treatment and care. At Lanier Law Group, our tenacious lawyers are prepared to pursue damages against whoever may have caused your child's birth injury.
In our experience, we have found that the following parties are often to blame:
- Delivery doctors
- Delivery nurses
- Maternity care nurses
These are only a few of the individuals who may be responsible for causing harm to your baby. Virtually anyone who works at a hospital, or even the hospital itself, can cause a birth injury.
Top Causes of Birth Injuries
The moment you suspect that your baby has suffered a birth injury, you should seek help from a skilled attorney. Our firm works quickly to gather evidence, including relevant medical records, to build a strong case that may help you obtain compensation.
Some of the most common causes of birth injuries include:
- Failure to diagnose maternal complications
- Improper prenatal care
- Negligence during labor and/or delivery
- Misuse of birth assistance tools
- Failure to monitor an infant/mother’s vital signs
- Failure to order a timely C-section
- Failure to recognize and respond to signs of fetal distress
These examples represent only a fraction of the myriad causes of birth injuries. In most cases, a medical professional’s negligence or carelessness is the root cause. At Lanier Law Group, we believe that this is unacceptable. Our North Carolina birth injury lawyers are prepared to fight for the justice and recovery you, your child, and your family deserve.
