It’s estimated that one in every eight children are born prematurely in the United States, putting them at risk of health and developmental complications. It’s also estimated that families who had a premature child spend at least 15 times more money taking care of these children than the traditional American family does.
Babies born prematurely are more susceptible to infections due to an impaired immune system. Because of this fact, hospitals and medical professionals are trained to provide specialized care and monitoring following delivery.
When a medical professional fails in their duty to keep your child safe from unnecessary harm, they may be held financially liable for any and all expenses/damages that your family suffers as a result.
It’s important to remember that not every type of birth injury constitutes medical malpractice under the letter of the law. In order to have a valid birth injury claim, you must meet the three following requirements:
During delivery, doctors should monitor both the mother’s and baby’s vital signs closely to make sure that everything goes well. In addition, they are responsible for making sure that any emergency conditions are mitigated in a timely manner.
Shortly after birth, these same doctors should make sure that the child is breathing and that there are no health complications which may lead to serious emergencies such as brain bleeds or the buildup of bilirubin (which can lead to fetal jaundice or kernicterus). Failure to take these precautions can put the baby at risk of developing cerebral palsy, hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, and other serious birth injuries.
