Despite advances in medical science and birthing techniques, birth injuries still happen to many families. Statistically, 6 out of 1000 births involve a birth injury. Some of these injuries may not be commonly known to be related to mistakes and negligence by the primary doctor or other staff.
Some birth injuries are fairly minor, such as a scratch or a bruise. Fractured bones are also fairly common and are less severe than other problems that may arise. These include Erb’s palsy, cerebral palsy, facial paralysis, and other extreme conditions that may require surgery to correct or may even be permanent. Negligence and error during birth are far more common than most people realize, and more than most medical professionals would care to admit. Fortunately, many people have successful deliveries without complications despite substandard performance by the medical staff. However, some people are not so lucky.
The problem is that it is hard for the average person to pinpoint just who is responsible for a given birth injury. So many things can go wrong, and so many professionals can handle them inadequately. Identifying who is responsible and under what circumstance is only the beginning of how the medical malpractice attorneys in Maryland at Snyder and Snyder can help you.
