Birth Injury & Birth Defect Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Indianapolis

Expectant parents worry daily about the safety of their baby, and trust that their doctor and health care providers will provide the highest standard of care and take every step possible to avoid birth injuries and birth defects. While sometimes birth injuries or defects are out of the health care provider’s control, there are instances in which the physician or hospital could have taken different measures to avoid such devastating consequences. In these cases, an experienced medical malpractice attorney can advise you of the appropriate next steps to seek justice.

Medical malpractice occurs when there is professional negligence by a health care provider during when the treatment provided falls below the accepted standard of care, resulting in patient injury or death. Sadly, these cases are all too common in our society but we are dedicated to ensuring that your rights are defended.

Actions that can result in medical malpractice relating to birth defects or injury include but are not limited to:

  • Failure to anticipate birth complications
  • Failure to respond appropriately to bleeding
  • Failure to respond to umbilical cord entrapment
  • Failure to respond to fetal distress
  • Delay in ordering cesarean section
  • Inappropriate administration of Pitocin
