It is widely agreed upon in international medical communities that most birth injuries are not naturally occurring. Instead, a medical professional’s mistake is often the cause of a birth injury that otherwise could have been avoided. Any medical professional who works with and treats a pregnant mother must be extremely careful to avoid any mistake that could result in a birth injury, such as doctors, nurses, and obstetricians. If they are not and a birth injury occurs, then the medical practitioner and the medical institution that employed them could be liable for the harm.
Medical mistakes that can cause a birth injury include:
- Misuse of vacuum extractors and/or forceps
- Unsafe manipulation of the infant during delivery
- Failure to notice signs of fetal distress
- Failure to perform a C-section when medically necessary
- Failure to review the mother’s medical record before delivery
- Administration of unsafe Pitocin doses
