Mothers are affected by birth injuries, too

After giving birth, many women in Louisiana suffer from injuries they received during the birthing process. These include both mental and physical injuries and can have a substantial impact on the woman’s life. She can be left to feel a range of physical and emotional anguishes. Some birth injuries are the result of medical malpractice. As such, the professionals who were in charge of her care may be held liable for birth injuries she received. It is important to recognize when you have been subject to negligence so that you can receive proper compensation for your birth injury case.   

Physical birth injuries are typically easy to recognize. Generally, when a mother receives a physical injury as a result of malpractice during childbirth, such as abnormal bleeding, excessive bruising, broken bones, bad cesarean section, infection, fissures, uterine rupture or vaginal tears, she is well aware that something went terribly wrong. Many of these injuries occur due to mistakes on the part of medical professionals. 

Though physical injuries can be terribly painful, expensive and leave lasting scars on the mother, mental injuries may have a more negative prognosis. Those who suffer mental birth injuries may battle PTSD, depression, anxiety and stress. Treatment for these serious issues can be very expensive and coping might be a chronic endeavor.

It is necessary that mothers who suffer from physical or mental birth injuries get appropriate medical care. If the injury was a result of medical malpractice, the mother may be entitled to compensation. For more information or advice, speaking with an experienced attorney can be beneficial.
