Your Monmouth County medical malpractice attorney will also be the one to communicate with all parties involved in the case. This will include any settlement negotiations.

This may include securing medical experts to testify on your behalf in front of a jury.

Birth Injuries Have A Lasting Impact

Injuries that happen to a child during the delivery process can lead to serious and lifelong consequences. Some of the most common mistakes made during childbirth that cause injuries include:

  • A failure of healthcare professionals to recognize maternal distress, including pre-eclampsia.
  • A lack of oxygen due to a breached birth.
  • Improper use of birth tools that can cause physical and developmental damage.
  • Failure to perform a C-section when one is indicated.
  • Failure to diagnose and treat fetal infections.

Babies can suffer temporary or permanent harm due to these injuries, some of which require surgery, physical therapy, or permanent care. Cerebral palsy is a birth injury caused by a lack of oxygen to a baby’s brain and is characterized by impaired muscle coordination and other possible disabilities.
