Failure To Diagnose | Medical Malpractice
A birth injury can happen during childbirth. It can also be the result of improper prenatal care or neonatal care errors. Typically, it can be directly linked to a failure to diagnose or properly treat a condition.
For example, during a pregnancy, a doctor should be able to spot genetic issues. A doctor should be able to recognize and treat most infections in the mother that may be passed on to the child during birth. Before or during childbirth, a doctor should be able to spot fetal distress and provide a cesarean section to prevent damage to the child. After childbirth, a doctor should be able to diagnose and treat jaundice, infections or other conditions.
