Birth Injuries Archives

Was birth injury leading to infant death caused by midwife?

For most people in Louisiana and across the country, a baby's birth is an exciting and wonderful time. A new person is entering the world, and although the birth process itself can be painful and stressful in general, in most cases the end result is a happy and positive one for everyone involved. Sadly, however, this is not always the case, and for some, a birth injury can occur during the process, sometimes resulting in death. Such was the case for one family.

Jury awards $50 million for birth injury

The delivery of a child is an anticipated and anxiety-inducing event for many parents in Louisiana and all over the world. Unfortunately, some infants suffer a debilitating birth injury during delivery. Some are able to recover and lead normal lives, but many are not. Following the conclusion of a recent lawsuit, one family has been awarded a $50 million judgment for the injuries their child suffered during birth.

Medical malpractice lawsuit results in $130 million judgment

Many Louisiana mothers have likely experienced the unexpected surprise of an earlier than planned delivery of a child. Understandably, mothers and physicians worry about the health of a child following a premature birth, but many babies are able to survive and thrive. One mother in another state experienced her own surprise with the early delivery of her child, but her child initially appeared to be healthy. In the weeks and months following the birth, the woman claims medical malpractice resulted in a life-long condition for her child. Recently, a civil court jury agreed.

Woman awarded $2.4 million after birth injury

When an injury occurs during the childbirth process, people in Louisiana may assume that the damage only occurs for the child. While there are several health risks for a baby, mothers can also suffer a birth injury. Recently, a jury issued a verdict in favor of a mother who claims to have suffered unnecessary harm due to the care of her obstetrician, and she was awarded $2.4 million.

Negligence leads to fatal fetal injury

Pregnancy is, for many Louisiana residents, something to be celebrated. For many people, having a child is a part of what makes their families complete. Soon-to-be parents, especially first-time parents, can sometimes be overly cautious because any illness that the mother suffers has the potential to affect the unborn child. One mother's unborn child suffered an ultimately fatal fetal injury because doctors failed to properly treat her illness.
