Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/20/2016 -- Birth injuries, a term describing injuries to a newborn sustained during the birthing process, can be an incredibly traumatic, emotional time for new mothers and fathers. Medical personnel practicing poor decision-making can cause a lifetime of damage to a child at the very first moments of their lives, whether through neurological damage or physical injury brought about by a mistake made during, or immediately following, a delivery. Rizio, Hamilton, & Kane, P.C., Philadelphia personal injury lawyers, are now offering legal representation for Philadelphians who have found themselves the unfortunate victims of this tragic offset of medical malpractice.
While newborns frequently suffer slight harm during birth, the vast majority of these cases heal on their own and present no lasting problems. However, greater injuries caused by a failure on the part of a doctor or medical professional to properly diagnose and handle a dangerous birthing situation before it is able to cause damage, may be a viable lawsuit that can provide the plaintiff with much-needed recompense for their current and future medical bills. Instances of such cases include a failure to recognize potentially harmful pregnancy disorders, such as hypertension; improper use of birthing tools, such as forceps; failure to provide a cesarean section at the proper time; and an overall improper assessment of the situation and of the baby's health.
