Your Child Deserved More
Months of planning and eagerly awaiting the birth of your child can be crushed by the uncertainty of an unnecessary birth injury. We at The Pagan Law Firm, P.C., know how tragic a child’s injury can be. While some conditions are a result of genetics, or other natural causes, there are some that can result from the failure of a medical staff to act appropriately, like:
- Meconium aspiration. This happens as a result of the fetus releasing fecal material into the womb, which then mixes with the amniotic fluid. This mixture may enter the lungs of the fetus, causing limpness, low blood pressure and lack of oxygen. While hypertension or diabetes in the mother can lead to meconium aspiration, a difficult or complicated labor process can cause the infant to release the fecal matter in the womb as well.
- Cerebral palsy. This is a muscular disorder that can cause difficulty with swallowing, eye imbalances and a spectrum of other muscular deficiencies. Cerebral palsy can also result from a lack of oxygen to the child’s brain during labor and birth as a consequence of medical malpractice.
Hold Those Responsible Accountable
When a medical professionals’ negligence during delivery leaves you with the lifelong consequences of having to deal with birth injuries, you need to hold them accountable. Hospitals often have a small army of lawyers to keep them from accepting their faults or paying for their mistakes. If you need help in holding a hospital accountable, get an attorney right away.
