Who is Responsible for your child's birth injuries?
Not every injury sustained during birth can be blamed on a doctor, nurse, or hospital. Unforeseen events do happen, and in most cases, the hospital staff does everything in its power (and more) to ensure a safe delivery. However, another party can be held liable for a Texas birth injury if:
- The newborn is not adequately monitored during birth, so the doctor is not aware that it is being deprived of oxygen or experiencing an irregular heartbeat.
- The doctor allows labor to go on for too long, resulting in complications for the newborn infant, when a C-section would have been the obvious recourse.
- The doctor or nurse mishandled the newborn baby manually or with forceps as it emerges from the birth canal, resulting in serious bodily injuries.
- The doctor misdiagnoses the newborn's condition, or makes the wrong diagnosis, putting the baby at further risk of complications or oxygen deprivation.
- The doctor or nurse is inadequately trained to handle anything but the most straightforward deliveries, and she panics when things go wrong.
One of the things that makes birth injuries so unsettling is that it's often not apparent that the newborn has suffered any damage at all: the doctor may admit that it was a “rough delivery,” but the hospital still sends you home, saying the baby is fine. It may take two or three years for any neurological damage to manifest itself—at which point you'll need the representation of an experienced birth injury lawyer in Texas.
