Your labor is over and your child has been born. You may think that there is little that can be done to resolve the problem of protracted labor now. However, if you, or your child, have been injured because of a prolonged labor then a New York birth injury lawyer may be able to help you.

A New York birth injury attorney will investigate what happened during your labor and help you determine whether your doctor or hospital should have recognized signs of prolonged labor. For example, some common signs of prolonged labor that may be dangerous to the mother or child include:
  • Labor that continues for more than 18 hours.
  • Exhaustion and/or dehydration in the mother.
  • Changes in fetal heart rate.
  • Slow cervical dilation.
  • Slow descent of the baby into the birth canal.

If you exhibited signs of prolonged labor and your doctor or hospital failed to treat your protracted labor then you may be entitled to damages. Damages may include compensation for past and future medical expenses, lost income, out of pocket expenses and pain and suffering.

To learn more about your rights - and your child's rights - after a protracted labor injury, please contact a New York labor injury lawyer at 1-800-PAGAN-911.
