Birth Injuries Archives

Birth injuries may not be immediately apparent

The time leading up to childbirth and the act itself can be incredibly stressful. But the moment after is supposed to be one of the happiest times of your life.

Previously, we began looking at the topic of medical malpractice in the context of OB-GYN care. As we noted, there are multiple reasons medical malpractice litigation is more common in the field of OB-BYN care.

And while not every mistake in care translates into a meritorious medical malpractice claim, the failure of providers and hospitals to satisfactorily communicate with patients often leads to litigation.
