When Might Obstetrical Malpractice Occur?

Most obstetricians do a wonderful job of caring for mothers-to-be and their babies during each state of the life-giving process. Malpractice occurs when obstetricians ignore well-known signs of distress in either the mother or child, or when they do not follow the current medical standards used during any part of the process.

For example, if the obstetrician does not use proper prenatal testing or does not do the proper research to ensure that they are prescribing a drug that is safe for both the mother and the baby, this could be malpractice. During the labor and delivery process, fetal heart rate monitoring errors can cause permanent injuries to the baby. Improper use of forceps or a vacuum extractor and failure to perform a timely emergency C-section are also examples of possible medical malpractice. In short, obstetrical malpractice can occur at any point.

The Risk of Permanent Injury

If you or your baby experienced a permanent injury because of obstetrical malpractice, you should make an appointment to speak with a birth injury attorney in Washington, D.C. Permanent injuries such as cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, and developmental delays can create a lifetime of added expenses and stress.

Failure of your obstetrician to properly monitor you or your baby can cause severe injuries. Having good insurance isn’t enough for families that have a child with special needs. Sometimes the additional help needed for education, speech, behavior, medications, and equipment just isn’t provided by major insurance carriers. Families often face difficult and stressful decisions about how to best care for their child while making the ends meet.
