Disabilities That May Be Caused By Negligence

Does your baby have Cerebral Palsy?

Does your baby have HIE (hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy)?

Is your baby not meeting his or her milestones (not feeding, not rolling over, not crawling, not walking, not talking)?

Is your baby in ECI or other therapies for his or her disabilities?

If you answered YES to any of the above, your baby’s disabilities may have been caused by negligence during labor and delivery.

NOT ALL DISABILITIES are caused by the negligence of a hospital or doctor during labor and delivery.  For example, some disabilities are genetic, such as Down’s Syndrome.  Genetic disabilities are not due to any negligence or malpractice.  Likewise, some disabilities due to prematurity are not due to negligence or malpractice.

However, some injuries to babies may be caused by something that a nurse or doctor did or did not do during labor and delivery. Here are some SIGNS THAT SOMETHING MAY HAVE GONE WRONG:

Did you have a difficult delivery or emergency C-section?

Was your baby limp or blue at delivery?  Not crying?

Was your baby resuscitated after birth?

Did your baby go to nicu?

Was your baby taken to a different hospital for a higher level of care?

Did your baby have total body cooling?

Did your baby have seizures after birth?

Did your baby have a stroke or seizures?

Did your baby have bleeding in the brain?

Did your baby have some type of infection?

Did your baby have meconium aspiration syndrome?

SOME POSSIBLE TYPES OF NEGLIGENCE BY A HOSPITAL OR DOCTOR DURING LABOR AND DELIVERY:

  • Not doing a C-section when needed
  • Not treating preeclamsia or other labor emergency
  • Not monitoring the baby’s oxygen or heart rate properly during labor
  • Not delivering the baby on time
  • Not treating mom for bleeding or other emergency
  • Improper anesthesia to mom during labor
  • Improper medications to mom during labor
