A birth injury is a heart-wrenching experience for an entire family, especially when the injury an innocent newborn suffered was caused by someone’s negligence. For instance, a labor and delivery physician can misuse or overuse Pitocin during labor, which can increase blood pressure in both the mother and the child, cause fetal distress, and lead to birth trauma affecting an infant’s delicate nervous system.
In the case your baby suffered a Kentucky birth injury because of a negligent doctor overusing or misusing Pitocin during delivery, you should meet with an experienced medical malpractice lawyer immediately for the three following reasons:
- Get your legal questions answered.
- Find out if you have legal rights to a medical malpractice claim.
- Learn what’s involved in pursuing a Kentucky birth injury lawsuit.
Our Northern Kentucky birth injury lawyers offer free consultations so that parents of children who have suffered at the hands of negligent doctors can learn more about their legal rights to compensation for:
- Past and future medical and hospital bills
- Permanent disabilities
- Future costs of living/future lost income
- Pain and suffering
If your child suffered a birth injury that you suspect was caused by Pitocin, you should find out more about your rights and see if you have a legal case.
