Medical Malpractice and Childbirth

Childbirth can be one of the most exciting moments in the lives of parents. However, delivering a child is a complicated medical procedure that requires the skills of an experienced and careful doctor. The risk of injury to both the mother and child is high in childbirth if exact procedures are not followed correctly. Sadly, when a doctor fails to deliver the baby properly, it can result in trauma to the baby that did not previously exist.

If you or a loved one recently delivered a baby that was injured due to a doctor’s negligent or inappropriate actions, contact our Waukesha medical malpractice lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C.® immediately at (800) 242-2874 to consult with a skilled attorney and determine if you qualify for compensation.

Potential Negative Outcomes of Childbirth

Childbirth-related injuries and complications are not uncommon. Doctors must prepare themselves to handle a variety of different emergencies that can arise during delivery, such as umbilical cord prolapse or shoulder dystocia. If they fail to act responsibly and efficiently, it can lead to birth injuries as well as maternal complications. Some of the potential negative outcomes of childbirth include:

  • Newborn asphyxia
  • Brain damage
  • Exposure to infection
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Cephalohematoma

Additionally, if a mother is not treated correctly, she can suffer from internal bleeding and other potentially deadly complications. These poor outcomes of childbirth can be devastating to a family expecting a healthy, happy mother and child.
