Generally, expectant mothers in Houston, Texas, probably expect the birth of their child to occur without any major medical issues. Unfortunately for one Texas teen, this was not the case. After it was decided that she should undergo a C-section, the young mother was given spinal anesthesia which then led to severe complications. The girl's family is now suing the hospital and medical professionals for negligent medical care that resulted in permanent brain damage.
As this blog has previously written about, birth injuries are almost never warranted. While anything can happen when dealing with the delivery of a child, expecting parents shouldn't expect or accept negligent care from the doctor and staff that they are being treated by. And when people try to hold those doctors and staff accountable for birth injuries, they should expect their big-money opponents to fight back.
