How do I know if medical malpractice caused my child's birth injury?

The majority of deliveries go smoothly - with the doctors, nurses and other hospital staff performing admirably leading to the birth of a healthy baby. However, in some situations medical errors or mistakes are made, leading to tragic results. Often when birth injuries occur, the effects of those injuries last a lifetime.

If your child has suffered a birth injury, how do you know whether it's the result of a preventable medical error or mistake, or an unavoidable complication? Many times, to determine just what happened it may be necessary to contact an experienced Los Angeles birth injury lawyer to order the medical records and conduct a review.

Often, warning signs exist that a delivery may be complicated. These can be discovered through proper prenatal care and evaluation. If a doctor fails to take the appropriate tests, or misreads the results, this may be considered prenatal negligence. Additionally, failing to be prepared to take quick remedial actions such as order an emergency Cesarean Section (C-Section) to reduce the potential harm may be considered medical malpractice.

In some cases, harm cannot be avoided. However, other times taking the appropriate, medically correct steps can eliminate a lifetime of pain.
