Was My Baby’s Birth Injury Caused by a Surgical Error?

hospital negligence lawyer Baltimore MDA hospital negligence lawyer Baltimore, MD residents count on knows all too well that if your baby suffered from a birth injury, you may be questioning what happened. It can be especially confusing if you had to have surgery during your pregnancy or if your baby required emergency surgery shortly after birth. Some birth injuries are not able to be prevented, however, most birth injuries are caused by negligence that could have been prevented. A surgeon could make a mistake that might make your child’s future turn out differently from how you imagine. There are questions that you can ask to investigate if there was a problem in the surgery that could have caused a birth injury, and see whether or not you may benefit from a hospital negligence lawyer in Baltimore, MD.

  • Did the surgeon thoroughly analyze and discuss the pros and cons of the necessity of the surgery with you?

Most of the time, a surgeon’s main focus is on the procedure instead of making sure it the best possible option for their patient. Did your surgeon talk in-depth with you about any potential harm that your child could suffer from the surgery? If it was an emergency, was surgery the only option provided or were there any other options?

  • Was there any delay between when it was decided that the condition required surgery and when the actual surgery took place?

If there was a delay in starting treatment, a hospital negligence lawyer Baltimore, MD will likely inform you that there could have been harm to a newborn or unborn child. If there was a delay in consulting with a surgeon or if the surgeon did not react appropriately to an emergency situation fast enough, the surgeon could be held liable for medical malpractice.

  • Were there any errors in the tests?

If there were any errors in the laboratory tests, the surgery may not have been necessary. Did the doctors take the necessary steps to discuss any of the lab results that led to the decision to have surgery? If there is a complication throughout a pregnancy, a hospital negligence lawyer from Baltimore, MD will likely tell you that there is a possibility that the surgeon did not take the time to thoroughly check the lab work to ensure the surgery was necessary.

  • Were your baby and your condition carefully monitored throughout the full surgical process?

When there are problems and chaos in a surgery, the medical staff could potentially not monitor the machines properly which show the condition of both the child and the mother. When you were awake and lucid, did you notice any times that your medical professionals did not monitor your vitals? Another possibility would be where you were sure something was not right and tried to tell someone your concerns, however, you were not able to get anyone to pay attention to you until it was too late and your child already suffered from irreversible harm.

There are many mistakes that could have taken place if you or your baby needed to have a surgery. The reason for a medical malpractice action because of a birth injury is to ensure that you and your family receive the resources you need to now care for your child.

If you or a loved one has suffered from medical malpractice, do not hesitate to reach out to Cohen & Cohen and we will be more than happy to set you up with a hospital negligence lawyer Baltimore, MD residents trust.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
