Forceps and Vacuum Extraction Devices

by | Nov 3, 2017 | Birth Injury, Firm News, Medical Devices, Medical Malpractice |


Forceps and vacuum extraction devices are useful and necessary instruments
that can help doctors deliver babies who are stuck in the birth canal
due to being oversized, in a breech position, or in other labor and delivery

Misuse of forceps (forceps delivery malpractice) or improper utilization
of vacuum extraction devices, however, may result in
birth injuries including shoulder dystocia,
Erb’s palsy, brain damage, transection spinal cord damage, or cerebral palsy. The
law office of the Lancione Law Firm would like to talk to you if you believe
your loved one resulted in a birth injury due to misuse of forceps.

We want to discuss possible misuse of forceps which caused trauma such
as a skull crush or a subdural hematoma. A baby suffering the consequences
of these or other types of birth trauma may face a lifetime suffering
the effects of their disability and may need personal care attendants,
physical and mental therapy, and special accommodations.

Qualified maternity health care professionals are responsible for guarding
the well-being of babies when mothers give birth under their care. Proper
care of mothers and babies during labor and delivery means following accepted
standards of care-not going against such expectations. When doctors delivering
babies do not meet the accepted standards of care, and a baby is injured
as a result, concerned parents should discuss the possibility of forceps
delivery malpractice with a knowledgeable law firm.
