Consequences of OB-GYN Mistakes

Some common types of complications that obstetricians are responsible for detecting and diagnosing include the following:

  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Pre-eclampsia
  • Placental abruption
  • Fetal distress
  • Uterine rupture
  • Prolapsed cord
  • Obstetrical hemorrhage
  • Puerperal sepsis

When an obstetrician fails to properly diagnose a condition or makes a mistake, the following birth injuries may affect the life of a baby:

  • Facial paralysis/Bell’s Palsy
  • Brain damage
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Erb’s Palsy/Brachial Plexus Injury
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Forcep bruising and injury

A birth injury or birth defect may not only be physically painful, but also emotionally distressing and financially burdensome. Many birth injuries require months, years, if not a lifetime, of medical care, treatment, and rehabilitation. A family’s way of life can be forever changed because of a birth injury. A child’s future physical and cognitive development, education, and ability to care for himself physically and emotionally can be compromised.

Client Testimonials

"I am a motor vehicle versus pedestrian, accident survivor. Although struck in a crosswalk outside my clinic. As a physician, I’ve had to deal and negotiate with insurance companies in the healthcare arena my entire career. Consequently, I felt that legal counseling would be the safest and most prudent way to approach this unfortunate circumstance. Having researched the numerous legal offices on the internet, Marasco and Nesselbush had a very strong and positive presence, and I must sincerely and wholeheartedly agree.

The Firm, and my M&N attorney, represented me in the most professional and experienced manner, and with ethics of the highest standards, during a significantly emotional time in my life. My M&N attorney was knowledgeable and compassionate about my case and situation. He came to my home the very day I contacted his law firm, thoroughly explained every detail clearly and distinctly, and honestly answered all of my questions. He was genuine, personal, reliable, and patient, offering not only professional support and responsible legal counsel, but also friendship and guidance during a difficult time and situation in my life. He and his staff have earned my deepest trust and respect. I wholeheartedly recommend Marasco and Nesselbush."
