The birth of a child should be a time of excitement and celebration; unfortunately, birth injuries affect thousands of babies each year. Negligent doctors who do not carefully monitor the mother and child before the birth may not properly diagnose critical conditions. Many birth injuries are preventable by monitoring and treating any existing conditions before the birth. In extreme cases, the mother or the child may not survive the delivery if the doctor does not take existing medical conditions into account.
There is no guarantee that a successful delivery will prevent birth injuries. Bruising, fractures, facial paralysis, and nerve damage may occur if the baby is mishandled after being born. Negligent doctors could potentially harm the baby or mother at any point that they are in that doctor’s care. If you have any questions about birth injuries or the legal process, contact the Stevens Point personal injury lawyers at 800-242-2874.
