Medical Malpractice in Labor & Delivery
Birth injuries often indicate negligence by the obstetrician (OB-GYN doctor)
or by nurses attending to the mother during labor. Cerebral palsy typically
means that the baby's brain was deprived of oxygen for an extended
period. Did the doctor fail to perform a C-section in a timely manner?
Erb's palsy is caused by tearing of the brachial nerves in the shoulder.
If the baby is stuck in the birth canal, injury can occur if the doctor
uses too much force or improper technique to free the baby.
