Emergencies During Childbirth
After birth, was your child sent immediately to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU)? Were you are told that your child was not breathing well or that your child is suffering from some other immediate health problem. If so, fetal distress may have caused a problem during delivery.
Fetal distress is a condition in which the baby is at risk for permanent brain damage or death due to asphyxia or hypoxia.
If your child has cerebral palsy, it may be the result of fetal distress. Fetal distress can cause permanent injuries if it is not handled properly by your doctors and nurses. At the Law Firm of Paul A. Casi II, we can help you find out what went wrong and why.
Doctors are Trained to Recognize and React to Fetal Distress
Doctors and nurses have a variety of tools they use, such as fetal monitors, to recognize fetal distress, including during vaginal birth after caesarean (VBAC). They are trained to use these tools and react appropriately, usually by delivering the baby by emergency means, often by Caesarean section.
If they do not use those tools, or if they do not react to the signs of fetal distress, they should be held accountable for the damage that results. Our lawyers are committed to holding them accountable when they negligently cause birth injuries.
