DELIVERY ROOM ERROR LAWYERS IN HAWAII
CONTACT DAVIS LEVIN LIVINGSTON TO LEARN YOUR RIGHTS
All medical professionals have a responsibility to provide the best care possible to their patients. Doctors must treat all people under their car to the best of their ability. If they fail to fulfill this responsibility, the consequences can be very harmful.
Delivering a baby is a complex and delicate process. Any error during a delivery can result in long-term medical conditions. Our firm is dedicated to helping the families impacted by a birth injury financially recover.
Examples of Delivery Room Errors
Any action of oversight during the labor process can be considered a delivery room error, and therefore, medical malpractice. A doctor endangering a mother and her baby through a moment of carelessness can affect a family permanently.
During the delivery process, negligence on behalf of medical staff can contribute to errors such as:
- Providing unnecessary or improper medication, or failure to provide needed medication
- Incorrect use of equipment
- Not performing a needed C-section or not performing a C-section in a timely matter
- Not attentively overseeing the condition of the fetus
