Deserved Relief For A Child And Family After A Birth Injury
Parents typically choose an obstetrician and gynecologist (OB-GYN), a birthing center and/or a hospital for delivery with care. They rightfully expect service providers to follow accepted standards of care during prenatal care, labor and delivery.
When a birth injury harms a baby and/or mother, parents’ natural first question is, “Why?” At Barney & Karamanis, LLP, in Chicago, our determined medical malpractice attorneys help discover the truth. We aggressively advocate in birth injury cases involving the following errors and outcomes.
Failure to monitor an unborn child during labor or to use correct maneuvers during delivery can rob a baby of oxygen, leading to cerebral palsy with life-long complications.
Brachial Plexus Injury, Erbs Palsy And Klumpke’s Palsy
Nerve damage can plague a child for life after a mismanaged delivery results in one of these injuries.
Delay in performing a cesarean section (C-section), performing an unnecessary C-section or negligent surgical techniques can harm a baby and/or lead to damaging uterine rupture.
Errors In Inducing Labor
Failure to induce labor when appropriate, failure to induce labor correctly and failure to manage the accelerated birth properly can have serious consequences.
Preeclampsia And HELLP Syndrome
Proper monitoring and management of these risky conditions should protect both a baby and a mother.
