When Doctors Makes Mistakes During Child Birth

Child birth is one of the most exciting times for a parent. It can also be one of the most dangerous. Parents rely on doctors and hospitals to handle every element of the prenatal care, delivery and postnatal care with precision. Any mistake made by the doctors, nurses or other medical staff could cause serious injuries for the remainder of the baby's life.

If your doctor made a mistake during the birth of your child, it is important to work with an experienced San Antonio birth injury lawyer who can help you hold the negligent doctor accountable for his or her actions. At the Law Offices of Glenn W. Cunningham, we have 20 years of experience in personal injury and medical malpractice matters.

Mistakes During Delivery

Because child birth is such a medically complex procedure, a doctor must carefully follow every standard of care. Any mistake could cause serious injuries or conditions, including:

  • Birth asphyxia
  • Deficient cord or placenta
  • Lack of nutrients or oxygen
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Erb's palsy
  • Brachial plexus birth injuries
  • Arm paralysis
  • Shoulder dystocia

Brachial plexus injuries are one of the most serious birth injures. Brachial plexus injuries occur when the baby's head comes out of the womb and the shoulder gets caught on the mother's pubic bone. Doctors usually have less than five minutes to resolve the emergency, and if they fail to correct the situation within that time, the result can be paralysis, brain injury or death.
