Do I Have a Viable Atlanta Birth Injury Claim?
For your claim to be valid, your child’s injury must have been caused by medical malpractice. Simple failures do not constitute negligence since nothing is ever guaranteed in a medical procedure; however, physicians, nurses, and other staff members are expected to uphold a reasonable standard of care and exercise their training and knowledge when conducting any procedure.
The team assigned to a birth has the following duties: monitor the health of the fetus, administer the birth in a proper fashion, and identify and promptly handle complications as they arise. Failure of any of these duties may give the family just cause to file a claim.
What Are the Common Causes of Birth Injury?
Examples of medical negligence that commonly lead to birth injuries include the following:
- Improper use of forceps or vacuum for extraction
- Delay in ordering a necessary C-section
- Improper use of labor-inducing drug
- Failure to address important developments in fetus
- Failure to diagnose and/or treat birthing complications
- Failure to refer high-risk patients to the appropriate specialists
We can conduct an investigation of your case to determine cause and liability. We will examine your child’s medical records, consult with medical experts, and tap into other resources to find evidence that strengthens your claim.
