While all pregnancies entail a certain amount of risk, medical malpractice in the delivery room dramatically increases the likelihood of maternal injuries, complications, and wrongful death. These preventable risks and injuries must not go unaddressed.
Maternal injuries can vary greatly by type and severity. Major complications, such as cardiac arrest and pulmonary embolism, warrant immediately contacting an experienced birth injury attorney. Other, less severe complications, such as tears, fissures, and related chronic pain, may not at first appear serious. However, even relatively minor injuries can result in long-term impairments or develop into severe conditions.
Following childbirth, mothers are encouraged to consult a medical or legal expert whenever excessive, unexpected, or unexplainable pain occurs. Great or small, injuries sustained as the result of medical malpractice may entitled you and your family to compensation.
