Birth Injuries Caused by Improper Delivery Technique in OH

Examples of Improper Delivery Technique

Doctors are entrusted with the safety of their patients, and there is no time that this is truer than during the delivery of a child. Expectant parents must rely on the education and experience of their medical team, whether it is a standard delivery or one besieged by complications. Every family has a right to expect that their medical team will follow appropriate guidelines.

Improper delivery technique can mean many things, including:

Cases of improper delivery technique often involve inexperienced midwives or family doctors who are in over their heads and do not seek the assistance of an experienced obstetrician in a difficult birth situation. Although obstetricians have more experience and training in correctly handling high-risk deliveries and responding to emergency situations, they make mistakes, too.

Only a careful review of the circumstances can determine if negligence was responsible for a child’s birth injuries. In investigating a possible birth injury lawsuit, our attorneys will consider all possible causes and identify the practitioners who should be held accountable.

Injuries Caused By Delivery Trauma

Mistakes made by obstetrical caregivers and medical staff in the delivery process can cause serious birth injuries such as developmental disabilities, motor impairment, nerve damage, spinal cord damage, loss of vision, loss of hearing, and more. Childbirth errors can also lead to fetal death or permanent injury to the mother, including the inability to bear more children.

Other common injuries caused by improper delivery techniques include:

Complications during labor and delivery are to be expected, and it is exactly what obstetricians and obstetrical nurses train for. They must be able to react competently and quickly to ordinary events and problems during delivery with the goal of delivering a healthy baby. If you believe your child’s birth injury or death could have been prevented, contact The Becker Law Firm today.

If you or your baby was seriously injured because the attending physician, nurse, or midwife used an improper birthing technique, contact The Becker Law Firm. When you call us at (440) 252-4399, we will review your case for free.

    "David worked our case with professionalism and patience in an amazing way that ultimately led to a positive outcome."
    Right from the very beginning of our case, David Skall and his assistant Jean Witt were both extremely kind and compassionate to help us put closure on a wrongful death case involving my father at a care facility. They were quick to answer any questions that we had and they made sure we were kept in the loop of this entire process. even though we were in the middle of a pandemic, David and his team were able to adapt their technology and make it all work out for our benefit. I would strongly recommend them to anyone in need of legal help.
