Florida Birth Injury Attorney
Most of the time, doctors, nurses, EMTs and other medical professionals do an excellent job providing patient care and preventing accidents and injuries during child birth. However, if an accident or injury should occur, it can have a long lasting effect and impact the rest of the child’s and/or mother’s life.
Birth injuries include any injury that occurs to the mother or baby during the birthing process. While most injuries that may occur are not the result of negligence, sometimes an injury could have been avoided. If an injury occurs during the birthing process to the mother or the baby, it is important to determine if this accident was due to negligent care or the lack of a procedure which could have prevented it.
In general, brain injury, spine and nerve damage, fractures, and bruising and other contusions can occur when a doctor fails to anticipate a complication that was detectable or there is a delay in responding to fetal distress.
