Miami Birth Injury Attorney

In 2008 and 2009, there were 129 serious complications for every 10,000 births in the United States. As the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports, this injury rate reflects a 75 percent increase in complications as compared with just a decade ago. Unfortunately, this means that thousands more mothers and babies are facing tragedy instead of the joy of a healthy new baby being born. In many tragic cases, the injury that mother or baby suffers during birth is an injury that was caused or exacerbated by a medical professional. When doctors or care providers fail to do their job in a professional way, the consequences can be devastating for families. If this happens to you, a Miami birth injury attorney at Steinger, Greene & Feiner can help you to seek justice and get the compensation you deserve to cover your losses.

Holding Doctors and Care Providers Responsible for Miami Birth Injuries

Doctors, hospitals and other healthcare providers responsible for caring for pregnant mothers and for delivering babies have an obligation to their patients. Care providers must provide reasonable, professional quality care and can be held responsible for acts or omissions that constitute medical negligence. Many different types of medical mistakes can occur during labor and delivery that doctors and care providers can be held accountable for. Some of the most common mistakes made include:

  • Medication errors including problems with the epidural or excessive use of Pitocin
  • Failure to monitor the health of mother or baby during labor and delivery
  • Delaying in ordering a necessary cesarean section in a breech birth situation, in prolonged labor or when mother or baby show signs of distress
  • Aggressively using the forceps or vacuum extractor in a way that injures mother or child

These are just a few examples of situations where doctors and care providers can make mistakes that cause devastating birth injuries. In these and other situations, you can hold the healthcare provider accountable by contacting a Miami birth injury lawyer and filing a medical malpractice lawsuit.
