Infections At Any Stage Of Birth Can Be Catastrophic

The team at The Lancione Law Firm represent victims of medical malpractice and birth injury. Many of the cases we handle involve injuries caused by infections during pregnancy, labor, delivery and shortly after the birth of your child. Throughout our years of experience, we have recovered millions of dollars for the those that have suffered at the hands of medical malpractice. If a medical professional’s negligence has injured your child, we may be able to recover monetary compensation for you by holding those accountable for the harm they caused.

ANY INFECTION DURING YOUR PREGNANCY CAN HAVE A LASTING EFFECT

Failure to test, detect, and treat infections during pregnancy can lead to severe complications, including stillbirth of the fetus. After deciding to take on your case, we obtain the medical records associated with your pregnancy to determine any wrongdoing. We thoroughly review the records, often consulting with our trusted doctors who are specially trained in obstetrics and neonatal care. Together, we determine if medical malpractice occurred. If we find that you did in fact, experience harm caused by an infection, we take effective legal action in the Ohio court system.

AN INFECTION DURING LABOR CAN POTENTIALLY CAUSE SEVERE ISSUES WITH THE BABY

Most parents do not realize how susceptible they are to an infection during pregnancy, labor, and delivery. With any infection-related case, medical malpractice may occur in several different ways such as:

  • Failure to prevent infections in the mother and child
  • Failure to diagnose infections/failing to conduct proper tests or review test results
  • Failure to properly treat infections that were diagnosed

During the delivery of a child, certain bacteria such as Escherichia coli (commonly referred to as E. coli) can be passed from mother to infant via the birth canal. While E. coli is a pretty common intestinal bacterium, it can cause serious harm to the child. In fact, it is one of the most common causes of neonatal meningitis which is often fatal, but if the victim is fortunate enough to survive this, the possibility of brain damage is high.

Serious complications may also develop because of an infection to the area where the cesarean section occurred such as infections of the bloodstream, septic shock, soft tissue infections called necrotizing fasciitis and even death. Infections do more than just put mothers’ and infants’ lives at risk, they significantly increase the costs of hospital care, prolong recovery and put babies’ lives at risk just when they are most vulnerable.

Taking legal action helps families recover the costs of treating these infections and pay for future costs associated with caring of the victims of these infections. If you feel you or your loved one has suffered from an infection, contact us today!
