Medical Malpractice and Birth Asphyxia
Medical professionals should recognize the symptoms of birth asphyxia promptly and order the proper tests, such as MRIs, CT scans, blood tests, and X-rays, to determine the infant’s health status.
They should also be able to recommend the best therapeutic treatment for the infant’s recovery. This includes guiding the family or infant’s caregivers on how to care for the infant and mother after birth trauma has occurred.
A failure to diagnose or recognize when the symptoms of birth asphyxia occur can have severe results, leading to a medical malpractice claim.

A Medical Malpractice Attorney Can Help You
If you have a child who suffered birth asphyxia before, during, or after childbirth, you may feel this was preventable or that you did not receive the standard of care you were owed as a patient. If so, you may be able to collect damages from the medical practitioner, health care facility, and other medical staff responsible for the safe delivery of your baby.
An Avondale birth asphyxia lawyer with the Birth Injury Lawyers Group can review the details of your situation and advise you of your legal options.
Your attorney can look further into your case and investigate why your infant suffered a birth injury. They will collect evidence that can build a strong case for financial recovery, including speaking to expert witnesses—such as physicians—who can weigh in with a professional opinion about your case.
The Statute of Limitations in Your Case
