A Legal Review Of What Went Medically Wrong

Medical mistakes during the birthing process can result in serious, lifelong consequences to a newborn, to the mother and to the expecting family. In some instances, it may be obvious that medical malpractice occurred, causing serious birth injury. In other cases, a thorough investigation of medical records may be required to get to the root of what went wrong during your pregnancy or during childbirth.

The Birth Injury Team, working with MyPhillyLawyer, has both the medical and legal knowledge to determine who was responsible for failing to properly monitor a fetal heart monitor, failing to timely order a c-section or committing another medical mistake that resulted in:

  • A serious infant brain injury, including hypoxia, hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) or that resulted in cerebral palsy
  • A serious neck or shoulder injury, including brachial plexus, Erb's Palsy or brachial plexus palsy
  • Complications related to the umbilical cord, including a cord wrapped around your baby's neck, undiagnosed vasa previa or an umbilical cord prolapse
  • Unnecessary health complications for the mother, including severe hemorrhaging or bleeding, post-delivery infections or wrongful death

When appropriate, a medical malpractice lawsuit can help you meet your child's ongoing needs by providing the resources to cover the costs associated with:

  • Rehabilitation, such as speech therapy and occupational therapy
  • Medication
  • Care and supervision, such as in-home assistance and respite care
  • Assistive equipment such as a wheelchair or home modifications

In addition, holding a doctor, nurse, midwife, hospital, birthing center or other party responsible for the actions that hurt your family can help warn other families as well as attempt to protect other infants from experiencing the same trauma.
