Labor and Delivery Problems Cause Birth Injuries
Hold negligent medical professionals accountable. Contact our Ohio law firm
Many birth injuries occur during the baby’s delivery. This is why it’s important that obstetricians and other doctors can identify different fetal risk factors that could result in a serious injury to a newborn infant or the mother.
Unfortunately, many medical professionals make mistakes in the delivery room. Many times, healthcare professionals wait too long to react to a medical emergency. Other times, they misdiagnose what’s wrong and provide the wrong treatment.
When this happens, they need to be held accountable for their negligent actions. However, building a strong medical negligence case can be very difficult. That’s why it’s important for families to fully understand their rights. That’s why we want to meet with you at The Lancione Law Firm in Ohio.

What are common labor and delivery problems?
Labor and delivery problems that result in a birth injury can cover a wide range. Some of the most common – and most serious – problems that come up during the delivery of a baby can include:
- Fetal distress, which means the unborn baby is not receiving enough oxygen.
- Delayed delivery or delays during the labor process, which can cause harm to the infant or the mother.
- Oxygen deprivation, which can result in a permanent brain injury in the baby and other common birth injuries, including Cerebral palsy.
- Misuse of forceps or extractors or other medical equipment during the baby’s delivery.
- Medication or anesthesia errors during the delivery process.
- Uterine rupture, a medical term for a tear in the uterus.
- Umbilical cord compression, including umbilical cord prolapse.
- Hospital infections, including sepsis, involving the newborn infant or the mother.
These are just some of the things that can go wrong during the delivery process. This is why obstetricians, anesthesiologists and other medical professionals undergo years of rigorous training. The slightest mistake can easily result in a serious or potentially life-threatening birth injury. When this happens, make sure you fully understand your legal rights. Make sure you talk to attorney Lancione.
