Few personal injury cases are as devastating as a birth injury case. Mothers entrust their well-being and the well-being of their unborn child to their doctor and medical staff. When their doctor and / or nurses prove to be negligent or incapable, the resulting injuries can be catastrophic. Mothers and children alike can be injured due to such medical malpractice or they may even suffer wrongful death. Anyone who has suffered damages due to a negligent obstetrician or other medical personnel member should not hesitate to retain a Phoenix personal injury lawyer and file a personal injury claim.
Mothers can suffer a number of serious injuries because of a doctor's negligence. During pregnancy, their physician could fail to properly monitor the mother or baby, resulting in a number of complications and injuries. Preeclampsia is just one example of such a consequence; it is when the mother develops high blood pressure and protein in the urine late in pregnancy or during labor. The mother could also suffer from vaginal tears, vacuum injuries, or a Cesarean section injury. Each of these injuries can endanger the life of the mother and can cause lasting damage.
Unborn or newborn children can also suffer serious injury if a doctor or nurse is negligent. Some of the most common injuries of this kind include brachial plexus palsy (Erb's palsy) and cerebral palsy. A child can also suffer from vacuum injuries and hematomas, broken bones, neck and back injuries, untreated jaundice, and much more.
