Labor & Delivery Complications

Did An Error In The Delivery Room Leave Your Newborn With Injuries?

After nine months of preparing for and carrying a baby, labor and delivery are often welcome events for many expecting mothers and fathers. But pregnancy complications or labor and delivery complications can permanently change an otherwise joyous event.

If you believe that a doctor, nurse or hospital involved in your birthing experience made a mistake that caused injury to you or your child, the birth injury attorneys at Freidin Dobrinsky Brown & Rosenblum, P.A. can help. We offer a free consultation to discuss what may have gone wrong during childbirth and who is responsible. Contact our firm online or at 800-815-6232 to schedule a free consultation with a Miami birth injury lawyer.

Causes Of Baby Birth Complications

Labor and delivery complications may be the result of natural causes or errors by your delivery team. Labor complications may include:

  • Preterm labor or premature birth
  • Prolonged labor (failure to progress)
  • Breech birth
  • Umbilical cord issues

Not all labor complications are the result of medical malpractice or negligence, but whether your delivery team recognizes the complications and how your care team responds to signs of fetal distress or birthing complications may arise to negligence or malpractice.

Errors in the birthing process that can lead to serious injury or wrongful death, and that may be caused by medical malpractice or hospital negligence include:

  • Failure to monitor your baby, including overlooking signs of oxygen deprivation or heart rate changes
  • Delaying a cesarean section (C-section)
  • Using forceps or a vacuum improperly, resulting in injuries to your newborn
  • Overmedicating with labor-inducing drugs such as Pitocin or administering the wrong medication
  • Using too much force during birth to pull the baby from the birth canal

The risks of childbirth do not end once your child is born; your labor and delivery team should carefully monitor you and your baby before, during and after delivery.

At Freidin Dobrinsky Brown & Rosenblum, P.A., our birth injury attorneys have more than 90 years of legal experience and have obtained successful results for families that have been injured by or lost a loved one due to medical malpractice. A birth injury lawsuit can help you and your family meet the financial needs of your child after a health care professional causes permanent injury and can help keep other families from going through the same heartache.
