For a parent, it is terrifying when a child is in physical danger, and it is especially terrifying when that child is not yet born and you can't readily see how badly the child is suffering. During your pregnancy you are dependent on your doctor to recognize the symptoms of fetal distress and to treat those symptoms.

A doctor's failure to diagnose fetal distress or failure to treat fetal distress can be devastating. Some of the possible effects of not treating fetal distress promptly include:
  • Lack of oxygen to the fetus that can result in brain damage and conditions such as cerebral palsy
  • An emergency delivery that requires the use of equipment such as forceps or vacuums that can injure the child
  • The baby's death before, during, or soon after childbirth

As New York birth trauma attorneys, we believe that your child deserves the very best possible start in life. We believe that your doctor and hospital should recognize the signs of fetal distress, exercise their duty of care, and respond appropriately. If that did not happen and your child suffered an injury as a result, then we encourage you to call a New York birth injury lawyer for more information about your rights and potential recovery. We can be reached at 1-800-PAGAN-911 or via our online contact form.
