Birth Injuries Archives

When is a C-section necessary?

One of the most efficient ways to prevent harm from occurring in the medical field is to provide quick and accurate care to patients. Oftentimes on this blog we discuss how a failure to diagnose, or a delayed diagnosis, can pose a serious risk to unsuspecting patients. While these situations can leave patients with significant harm and even death, timely and proper action is also needed when a woman is about to give birth. Most commonly, this issue arises when a doctor must make a decision about whether to conduct a C-section.

There's a fine line between right and wrong use of forceps

You have spent your pregnancy nurturing the new life inside of you while patiently, or impatiently, awaiting the arrival of your newborn. You have done what you can to prepare for the big day, but when it comes, the unexpected occurs, and the delivery does not go as you hoped or planned.

Group B Strep infection and birth injuries

The process of giving birth to a healthy child does not begin with the day that a child is born. Instead, extensive pre-natal healthcare and routine checkups are key to ensuring the health of both an unborn baby and his or her mother. Although most of the procedures that make up this care are routine, they can be critically important. When seemingly minor steps are missed, or test readings are misinterpreted, serious injuries and/or death can result.

Vacuum extraction and birth injuries

In an ideal world, every birth would be quick, easy, and painless. But we all know that the real world is far from the ideal one. The reality is that many Texans go through a long, painful, and emotionally difficult birthing process. It is during this time, when mothers and fathers-to-be are tired and mentally fatigued, that they may be asked to make important decisions that have a direct impact on the mother and child's health.

Study shows birth injuries from certain medical tools prevalent

Parents who are expecting a child in Texas and feeling excitement over the coming event and all its aspects will be loath to think about any potential negatives that can come about. In some cases, unfortunately, they do. In some instances, they are due to a negligent doctor. Birth injuries can lead to pain, lifelong struggles and massive expenses to treat and care for the child. Studies are done to determine how and why these birth injuries occur and it is important for parents to understand what might have happened in the event they want to consider pursuing compensation in a birth injury case.

Pursuing justice after medical negligence causes birth injury

The birth of a child is one of the most joyous occasions a person may ever experience. Parents grow extremely fond of their child even before birth, and would never want to see a single hair on his or her head come to harm. However, the risk of serious birth injuries is real, especially when doctors and nurses fail to provide appropriate care.

General anesthesia can be risky business in childbirth

There's a reason why obstetricians tend to use general anesthesia only when it's necessary. Even though its use remains safe for most people, it does come with risks, especially for a woman about to give birth. Considering the fact that one of the only reasons that you would receive general anesthesia is because you require a C-section, you might not spend much time thinking about how it will occur, but instead think only of the safety of your unborn child.

Birth injuries: lawyers help Texans with cerebral palsy

Parents who have a child who suffers from cerebral palsy might be under the impression that it was a matter of circumstance and nothing could have been done to prevent it. While it is true that some instances of cerebral palsy come about because of congenital problems that is not always the case. There are instances in which a lack of oxygen to the child's brain caused it, and it happened because of a doctor or medical professional making a mistake. It is, at times like these, a parent needs to understand their rights to file a birth injury case.

Binding arbitration fails to stop suit

The Florida Supreme Court recently ruled on a medical malpractice suit that might have ramifications across the nation, depending on how each state handles arbitration suits. The ruling involved "binding arbitration" or an agreement between two parties to help quickly address disputes.
