There is nothing like the joy of holding your newborn infant in your arms and celebrating a new member of your family. Every parent wants a healthy pregnancy and smooth delivery, but sometimes there are complications. These complications should not come about through carelessness or errors on the part of your attending medical staff, however, as you expect your doctor and his team to provide safe and quality care. If your newborn has experienced birth injuries due to medical malpractice, it is in your best interest to find out more about your rights and options for financial damages by contacting a Las Vegas Nevada medical malpractice and negligence lawyer.
Birth injuries can occur for a variety of reasons. Many of these reasons can stem from poor medical treatment or improper procedure during the pregnancy. When a doctor fails to diagnose certain pregnancy disorders, improperly uses medical equipment and tools, does not provide a proper assessment of the baby’s health in the womb, or fails to perform a necessary caesarian section, there can be permanent injury and damage done to your baby. Improper prescription or administration of a pharmaceutical can also lead to birth defects and injuries. When your obstetrician fails to use correct technique or misuses medical equipment during the birth itself, your baby can suffer from lack of oxygen and be subject to other serious injuries such as cerebral palsy. Statistics show that 5 out of every 1,000 babies born in this country will suffer a birth injury.
