    The Types of Obstetrical Malpractice Cases
    • Brain Injury Due to Lack of Oxygen During Labour and Delivery
    • Injury Caused By Delivery Instruments
    • Strokes During Labour and Delivery
    • Shoulder Dystocia
    • Prematurity
    • Failing to Properly Assess the Neonate
    • Failure to Properly Resuscitate
    Brain Injury Due to Lack of Oxygen During Labour and Delivery

    During delivery, the contractions will result in a decrease in blood flow and oxygen to the fetus. Typically, the fetus has the ability to recover and tolerate the lack of oxygen. However, in some cases, the change may be too quick for the fetus to recover. The obstetrical provider will be responsible for monitoring the heart rate of the fetus and intervening when necessary. It’s essential for the obstetrical provider to intervene before any neurological injuries occur.

    Injury Caused By Delivery Instruments

    The vacuum extractors or forceps could cause injuries to the newborn.

    Strokes During Labour and Delivery

    Many experts believe that a lack of oxygen can lead to fetal strokes. Typically, if a fetal stroke occurs, it can be argued that early interventions could have prevented the stroke.

    Shoulder Dystocia

    Sometimes, the baby can get stuck on their mother’s pubic bone during delivery, which results in an obstetrical emergency. It’s possible for the baby’s spine to be torn or stretched if the obstetrician applies excessive traction when dislodging the shoulder. This can cause reduced functionality and movement of the baby’s arm.

    Prematurity

    There can be significant risks if a baby is born prematurely. In some cases, it could be possible to make a claim saying the provider failed to take appropriate steps to prolong the delivery.

    Failing to Properly Assess the Neonate

    The healthcare provider must check the baby’s bilirubin levels, blood sugar, and for signs of infection in the following days after birth. The baby can suffer brain injuries if these conditions are not properly monitored.

    Failure to Properly Resuscitate

    Some babies require resuscitation or suctioning for meconium. In the cases of improper resuscitation, the baby may suffer neurological injury.

    • I suffered a brain injury and other serious injuries when the car I was driving was struck by a semi-truck. In addition to my physical injuries I experienced psychological injuries and was wholly unable to do my job or live my life daily. The insurance company offered me $6,500.00 to settle my claim. Steve had my back and brought my case to mediation where he obtained $850,000.00 in compensation one month short of trial. Steve has the trucking expertise to understand the process and was available to me throughout the process. Would absolutely recommend Grover Law Firm to anyone that has been injured in a serious trucking crash.
