Giving birth to a healthy baby is every mother’s dream. A mother tries very hard to keep that precious baby inside her safe and warm for nine months, so she expects the same from her doctors when it comes to delivering the baby. Unfortunately, sometimes things happen that are out of the mother’s control. Doctors and nurses are responsible for delivering a healthy baby without causing harm to it or the mother.
Birth injury happens in six or eight of every one thousand births. A Baltimore birth injury attorney can help parents out legally if their baby has experience injury during birth.
Birth injury occurs when a doctor or nurse has delayed delivery, deprived oxygen to the baby, used forceps or vacuum extractions, used force or has contributed to delaying the birth of the baby for any reason. Most babies survive birth injuries, but at a high cost. Unfortunately, others do not. Cerebral palsy, brain damage, respiratory problems, mental and physical problems and Erb’s palsy are what some children will be living with for the rest of their lives if they have suffered injury during birth.
Medical malpractice can cost families thousands of dollars each year in therapy. Why should they pay for the mistakes the doctors or nurses have made? Isn’t it enough that the child will not live a normal life, but will have to undergo therapy and treatment for possibly the rest of their lives?
