Labor and delivery are complex processes. Medical staff must make split-second, accurate decisions when a baby is being born. Mistakes that jeopardize the health of the baby can occur. Improper fetal monitoring, medication choices, use of forceps and vacuum extractors, failure to provide a timely C-section… These can all cause serious, preventable injury.
Any problems that arise during birth can be very dangerous to the health of both mother and child. In many cases, labor is complication-free. However, many mothers will experience problems during the birthing process that, without proper medical attention and action, can be dangerous.
When medical professionals fail to address (and provide adequate care for) labor and delivery complications, both mother and child can be severely and permanently damaged. When these preventable injuries occur, it is medical malpractice. Instances of medical malpractice should be evaluated by experienced birth injury attorneys.

The plaintiff went to a Chicago hospital for delivery of twins via cesarean section. In the delivery room, a suspicious rash was recognized on one of the twins and later, fecal and urine cultures confirmed the presence of candida. She was started on prophylactic anti-fungal medicine and is healthy. The other twin was clear of any rash and though she was at risk for fungal infection, she was not treated in a timely manner. Later, a head ultrasound and MRI confirmed the diagnosis and damage to her brain. A lawsuit was filed on the plaintiff’s behalf. The case was vigorously defended by lawyers for the physician and the hospital that he worked for over 3 years. Eventually, a mediation took place at which time the defendants offered $3,000,000 to settle, which the plaintiff rejected. It was not until trial that the case settled for $10,000,000.
