shutterstock_89347078 When a child suffers a birth injury, it is imperative that he or she receives prompt medical care and gets all necessary treatment to achieve their full potential in spite of the injury. Unfortunately, birth injuries are often permanent and cause a child to experience devastating impairments. The doctors or care providers responsible for causing this harm to a child and family must be held accountable.

Florida law allows injured victims to take action against doctors, hospitals and other healthcare providers who cause birth injury through medical mistakes or negligence. However, injured victims must pursue their claim through negotiating with a malpractice insurer or filing a malpractice lawsuit. This can be a complicated process.

Medical Negligence Can Lead to Birth Injury

Doctors and healthcare providers who provide care to pregnant women or who deliver babies are expected to do their jobs in a reasonably competent way. If they make mistakes-- either acts or omissions-- that a reasonable physician with their background would not have made, then they are said to have committed medical negligence. Many different wrongful acts can lead to a claim of medical negligence including:

  • Misuse of the forceps
  • Misuse of the vacuum extractor
  • Problems administering Pitocin
  • Anesthesia or epidural mistakes
  • Failure to recognize fetal distress
  • Failure to recognize maternal distress
  • Failure to monitor mother or child
  • Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose infections or complications
  • Prolonged labor or unreasonable delay in ordering a cesarean section

In these and other situations, the errors the doctor or care provider makes can give rise to a medical malpractice claim based on medical negligence.
