Forceps and Vacuum Extraction Devices
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 complications.
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.
