Labor and Delivery Problems

In most cases, labor and delivery occur without complication and a healthy baby is born. Even with 9 months of proper care and treatment, emergency situations can occur once the mother goes into labor. Medical professionals are depended upon to recognize and resolve these without injury to the baby. Breeched delivery, fetal distress, premature delivery, induced labor through the use of Pitocin, a baby left in the birth canal too long, a brachial plexus injury and many other types of adverse complications can arise. Frequently, injuries are caused by the newborn being deprived of sufficient oxygen.

There are many instances where an injury during labor or delivery could have been avoided had problems been observed, properly diagnosed and quickly and correctly resolved. Mistakes by a doctor, nurse or other medical personnel, where they have failed to live up to the accepted standards of their profession, constitute medical malpractice.

Unfortunately, many parents don't know where to turn to or what to do when their child has been injured by negligence. Representing our firm, Mr. Bostwick and Mr. Peterson are committed and passionate towards fighting for your rights when labor and delivery problems were the source of your child's birth injury. We feel health care providers, guilty of malpractice, should be held accountable for their actions and the consequences. Through the use of a dedicated California birth injury attorney, financial compensation should be sought vigorously in these cases.

Consequences of Labor & Delivery Problems

Labor and delivery problems can result in brain injuries, injury to the spinal cord, cerebral palsy, mental retardation, autism, and in extreme cases, a wrongful death. Failure to recommend a cesarean section or delays in performing one, extreme pressures on the baby through the improper use of forceps or vacuum extractors, errors in medication or anesthesia or not noticing fetal distress are but a few of the ways in which your baby could have been injured.

We have obtained in excess of $500 million on behalf of our clients and would like to represent you if you need high-quality legal assistance. Your questions can be answered and we look forward to helping you and your family.

If labor and delivery problems caused injury to your child, tell us what happened. Contact a California birth injury lawyer from our firm today.
