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.

a father and mother reading a book to their two children For anyone who is really looking for a team of Attorneys that will fight for you every second of the way, this here is the team you want and need in your corner. Attorney Ryan Kelley and his team helped me through such a difficult time after my accident. The stress of thinking what happens next was lifted off my shoulders.

Communication is key for me, and my M&N team was on point with the level of communication they provided. The get-well cards and flowers after surgery were just a special touch that brightened my day. I wasn’t treated like another number or another case, they really made me feel like family. They really care for you and your wellbeing. Words will never express but I will forever be grateful for all they have done for me. Thank you !!!!!”
