Were birth injuries due to a slow or absent response?

Few things are more natural than pregnancy. A woman's body knows what to do, and for the vast majority of women here in Kentucky and around the world, their pregnancies are uneventful -- medically speaking. A certain percentage of women encounter difficulties that put the lives of both mother and child in jeopardy, however. If those conditions are not treated swiftly and efficiently, birth injuries to either or both could occur.

You may have been like most other expectant mothers and contacted your doctor as soon as you thought something was wrong. Often your body will give you some warning of a larger problem to come. If your doctor ignores those signs, it could lead to injuries to both you and your unborn child.

Issues such as cramping, vaginal bleeding or an increase in your blood pressure should all be monitored. Proteins in your blood could indicate a serious condition called pre-eclampsia. Low oxygen in your blood and a decrease in your fetus's movement could be signs of fetal distress. If your doctor fails to take your concerns or complaints seriously, a diagnosis could be delayed. That delay could jeopardize your health and the health of your child.

If your doctor failed to heed the warning signs at all or waited too long to do something about them, you or your child may have suffered birth injuries that resulted in long lasting or potentially lifelong health consequences. In that case, you may have grounds for filing a medical malpractice claim in a Kentucky civil court. A successful claim that establishes negligence or a failure to meet the standard of care could result in the receipt of restitution you need to deal with the consequences of your doctor's mistake.
