Taking action after a birth injury in Arizona

Giving birth is a scary, exhilarating and rewarding experience. It could arguably consist of a mixture of all possible emotions, from pain and fear to love and joy. But for some mothers, giving birth has consequences to their bodies or to their baby that could affect them for the rest of their lives.

When medical complications arise during the delivery process, they may be unavoidable. However, it is the responsibility of the hospital and the medical practitioners to make sure that the situation is as safe as possible, as well as to mitigate any risks.

If you suffered an injury in Arizona during the delivery of your baby, it is likely to have caused you a great deal of pain and suffering. It may also have affected your ability to bond with your baby, and could even have been responsible for conditions such as post-natal depression. Babies can also suffer permanent injuries from the moment they are born due to negligence during delivery. If you or your baby’s quality of life has been negatively affected by an injury during the birth of a child, it is important to consider whether you believe that the hospital or medical providers could have prevented the incident from occurring, and whether you think they might be responsible.

How can I prove that a hospital was responsible for my injury?

When bringing a labor injury to the courts, a judge or jury will consider the situation and ask whether a theoretically competent hospital and doctor would have been able to work through the medical complications and have been able to produce a less-severe result. The mistakes that medical practitioners made will be evaluated, and the consequences of these actions will be assessed.

Through this evaluation of events, medical practitioners or the hospital in which they work may be found negligent. They may be responsible for the injuries and suffering that you and/or your baby had to endure. If you have suffered an injury in Arizona after delivering a baby or if your baby was injured at birth you believe it could have been prevented, it is a good idea to consider taking action. Contact our offices for a review of the potential claim.
