$42 million awarded to family in birth injury case

Most women in Pennsylvania with a healthy pregnancy anticipate that they will give birth to a healthy child. However, the birth process can be complicated, sometimes, necessitating the use of certain tools, such as forceps. These tools take skill to use. If they are improperly used, it could cause the child to suffer lifelong birth injuries, as one Pennsylvania family has experienced.

Helping you hold a negligent doctor liable for birth injuries

Bringing new life into the world is an exciting event for parents. It is also an exciting career for the medical professionals that partake in the pregnancy, labor and delivery process. While much time and effort goes into planning and preparing for the birth of a child, the parent-to-be cannot always prepare and avoid any and all issues and complications. And there is one event that a parent can never prepare for -- the negligence of a medical professional helping with the birth of their child.

Parents-to-be often do not focus on the risks associated with childbirth. Mothers in Pennsylvania and elsewhere may try not to think of the chances their baby could be born with a disability or suffer harm due to a birth injury.

Preparing to bring a baby into this work is an exciting and overwhelming time for parents in Pennsylvania and elsewhere. Whether it is your first child or fourth child, it is an emotional experience filled with many concerns and what ifs.

Errors during delivery causing traumatic birth injuries

Much like a Pennsylvania mother-to-be cannot control when her baby comes unless she has a planned C-section, a mother-to-be cannot always expect her baby to be delivered healthy and unharmed -- even though that is her hope and intention.

Moreover, parents should also consider the unfortunate possibility of an error during delivery occurring, thus causing a traumatic birth injury to their infant.

Determining the cause of a birth injury

Bringing new life into the world is a miraculous event. Parents, whether it is their first child or not, enter the child birthing process with much joy and hope in their hearts and minds. A mother and father likely do not want to contemplate any unexpected complications during the labor and delivery process. Even more so, parents do not anticipate that their new bundle of joy will suffer due to a birth injury caused by a negligent doctor.
