Was Your Baby's Birth Beset With Complications?

We expect that doctors have the knowledge and training to recognize and respond to complications during pregnancy, including fetal distress. To help them determine when problems arise, obstetricians use fetal monitoring systems/fetal heart rate monitors. Failure to recognize fetal distress — or respond to it if it arises — can lead to serious consequences, including devastating or fatal injuries to the infant and mother.

Let us take on the legal concerns while you focus on your family. We will help you understand what went wrong and why as we navigate through the legal system for you.

What Caused Your Infant's Injuries?

Fetal heart rate monitor strips show patterns that doctors and nurses must be aware of at all times during birth. Acceleration and deceleration on the fetal monitoring system can show that something is wrong. Perhaps the infant was being asphyxiated from oxygen deprivation or there were problems involving the umbilical cord placement.

Failure to recognize fetal distress often means failure to act to prevent death or serious disorders such as cerebral palsy, Erb's palsy and brain damage. In many of these cases, "acting" means performing a timely C-section.

The fetal heart rate monitor may also be the cause of your infant's injuries. We will investigate to determine whether it was working properly and pursue appropriate actions against those responsible.
