Although birth injuries can sometimes be confused with birth defects, birth injuries are those that occur as a result of prenatal care mistakes or improper delivery techniques. For example, if a doctor prescribed a drug to a woman while she was pregnant, and that drug injured her child, the mother may be able to bring a medical malpractice suit against the doctor, as well as the pharmacist and drug manufacturer.
If a doctor failed to properly assess the condition of a baby during the delivery process, and that failure resulted in injury to the child, it is important that action is taken and a medical malpractice suit filed against the negligent doctor. Similarly, if a doctor or nurse used forceps or a vacuum improperly when delivering a baby, resulting in harm to the child, a medical malpractice suit could be filed against the doctor or nurse, as well as the hospital.
For a successful recovery, you must show that the individuals involved provided inadequate medical care, which resulted in harm to your child. Our Norman personal injury attorneys are prepared to carefully review your case, gather evidence, and fight aggressively on your behalf. We have a reputation for working tirelessly to protect our clients' interests, and we can do the same for you and your family.
