Phoenix High Risk Delivery Lawyers

There are many factors that may lead to a high-risk delivery. Doctors have a responsibility to recognize them and to take actions that prevent harm to the newborn child and the mother. When they do not do this and when harm results, they should be held accountable for their mistakes. At Harris Powers & Cunningham, in Phoenix, Arizona, this is our goal. Our Phoenix high risk delivery attorneys have successfully represented people and their children who have experienced injury due to medical negligence in a high-risk delivery. For immediate assistance call 602-910-6779 or email us today.

High Risk Delivery Attorneys in Phoenix

When a delivery is especially high-risk, the doctor should not take a delivery too complicated for them to handle — failure to consult with an available and more-knowledgeable physician may be another form of doctor error.

High-risk pregnancies and deliveries involve many factors. Doctors should recognize the warning signs and take the proper precautions.

  • The mother’s small stature or pelvic anomalies
  • Delayed or rapid labor
  • Breech delivery
  • Deliveries requiring the use of forceps or vacuum extraction
  • Low birth weight
  • Pre-maturity
  • Large birth weight
  • Fetal abnormalities or health problems

If you or a loved one gave birth to a child that was injured during a high-risk delivery, call us today at 602-910-6779 or contact us online.

Why Doctors Should Recognize the Signs of a High Risk Delivery

Modern medicine today makes tools for fetal monitoring and diagnosis widely available. Obstetricians should use ultrasonography (sonograms) and fetal monitoring before attempting vaginal delivery. Doctors who fail to properly conduct fetal monitoring may be committing medical malpractice.

Preterm Labor and Premature Births

Premature births are another common type of high-risk delivery. When labor starts too early, the fetus may not have developed enough to survive outside of the womb. Serious injury or death to the child may result, especially when doctors fail to diagnose and treat special conditions in preemies.
