The birth of a child should be a joyous occasion that family members can remember fondly for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, every year thousands of families will experience the pain and devastation of a Birth Injury.
Henson Fuerst can help with the following Birth Injury Cases:
The United States boasts some of the best hospitals and most highly trained doctors in the world. However, the rate of infant mortality in the United States is alarmingly high. According to the 2015 CIA World Fact Book, the United States ranks number 167 in the world for infant deaths, with a mortality rate of 5.87 per every 1,000 live births.
Every year, many cases of birth trauma or birth injury could have been avoided if doctors, nurses or other hospital staff members would have followed the proper safety procedures.
Possible causes for a birth injury include:
- Prolonged or difficult labor
- Failure to detect an umbilical cord wrapped around the infant’s neck
- Failure to quickly perform emergency C-section
- Failure to test and treat pregnancy-related conditions
- Misdiagnosis of pregnancy-related conditions
- Failure to detect negative fetal vital signs
