Learn How Our Portland Birth Injury Attorney Can Help

The last thing that any parent should be worried about after the birth of their new child is preventable injuries caused by the actions of a doctor or nurse that did not abide by the proper standard of conduct. While many births occur without a problem, when the doctor, nurse, or other medical professional caring for you during this time injures you or your infant, you may be able to hold them liable for medical malpractice.

Are you wondering if you may have a case for the suffering endured by you or your child during the birth process? Our experienced Portland birth injury lawyer can review the details of your case in a free initial case evaluation.

Do I have a medical malpractice case?

Some babies that have suffered from a delivery problem will recover with some extra medical attention while others suffer from extreme injury the remainder of their lives. Unfortunately, many problems during the labor and delivery process occur through failing to properly monitor the mother and the infant throughout the process. Keeping a careful eye on the needs of you and your baby can prevent needless injuries, and the doctors and nurses that failed to perform this basic level of care can be brought up on medical malpractice charges.

Call a medical malpractice lawyer if any of the following occurred when you were delivering your infant:

  • Delayed C-section
  • Placenta abruption
  • VBAC complication
  • Failure to notice fetal distress
  • Oxygen deprivation
  • Leaving baby in birth canal
  • Umbilical cord twisting or blocking

Any amount of suffering that occurs is too much. Not only is giving birth in a hospital a significant expense to a family, the additional costs associated in the care and treatment of an infant and the mother that have been harmed in the process can be immense. You should not have to pay when you have suffered from a preventable injury.
