Giving birth to a healthy baby boy or girl should be one of the happiest times in a person's life. When a person becomes pregnant, they trust that they will be cared for properly and throughout their entire pregnancy, including the labor and delivery process. When a doctor is caring for a patient, they are expected to honor a high level of regard for safety. As a medical professional they are expected to make no mistakes, especially when it comes to a patient's health and well-being.
There are thousands of birth injuries each year that can lead to the wrongful death or a lifetime of suffering to a newborn child. A doctor may be negligent during a patient's pregnancy by failing to diagnose, misdiagnosing, or improperly diagnosing an illness or disease. In addition, a baby or mother can be seriously injured due to unsafe practices or wrongdoing on part of a doctor during labor or delivery. When a medical mistake is made, the doctor or heath care professional should be held legally accountable.
