Birth injuries: Family receives multimillion dollar settlement

Thousands of babies are born every day in Delaware and across the country. Childbirth has evolved into a fairly routine process, so one would think that complications during this process are few and far between. Unfortunately, this is not the case. More birth injuries occur in the United States than in any other developed country.

Mother says her providers failed to recognize birth injuries

For parents in Delaware and across the country, one of the most wonderful occasions in life is the birth of their children. It goes without saying that all parents want a healthy birth, but this doesn't always happen. Tragically, birth injuries continue to occur at an alarming rate in the United States. Childbirth is a fragile process and if any steps are neglected in this process, babies and mothers can be permanently injured.

Birth injuries: New report finds most deaths are preventable

Tragically, the rate of death and injury for mothers giving birth in Delaware and across the United States continues to rise. Every year, more than 50,000 mothers suffer birth injuries, statistics say. Out of those, about 700 mothers die, a number that is entirely too high.

Birth injuries can turn childbirth into a tragedy

The United States is often considered the greatest country in the world. It is unfortunate, however, that a nation as advanced as the United States has one of the highest rates of birth injuries out of any developed nation. Every year, thousands of families in Delaware and across the country are faced with tragedy during what should be a joyous occasion. Injuries suffered at birth can affect a child for the rest of his or her life.

Birth injuries: Lawsuit settled for over $11 million

Giving birth is an incredibly fragile process, and parents in Delaware trust that medical providers will provide the appropriate care throughout this process. During this delicate time, any mistake or deviation from the accepted standard of care can result in birth injuries. A lawsuit filed in another state alleged that the negligence of doctors during birth resulted in a baby boy suffering permanent and severe brain damage.

Sadly, birth injuries continue to rise in the United States

The United States is largely considered to be the greatest country in the world, so one would think that United States citizens would also have access to the best medical care in the world. Unfortunately, this is not the case, especially for expectant mothers and newborns. According to a recent study, birth injuries and infant mortality rates are on the rise in Delaware and across the country.

Birth injuries: Mother awarded $230 million in historic lawsuit

Unfortunately, hospitals and medical care facilities in Delaware and across the United States are commonly understaffed. Doctors and nurses in these facilities are often in a rush to see more patients. Sometimes, mothers who are giving birth can be overlooked. Childbirth is a process that requires constant focus and attention. Without proper care, birth injuries can happen.

Far too many mothers suffer birth injuries in this country

For a developed country, the United States has serious issues when it comes to protecting mothers during labor and delivery. Far too many women suffer serious injuries or even die during the birth process across the country, and some of those mothers may be right here in Delaware. In fact, a recent investigation conducted by USA Today tried to determine why so many mothers in this country suffer birth injuries.

Birth injuries: Negligence during delivery leads to lawsuit

For parents in Delaware, the birth of a child should be an exciting time of celebrating new life. However, birth injuries can turn this celebration into a tragedy. Birth is arguably the most vulnerable time in a person's life and, to prevent injuries, providers must give appropriate and timely care to both infants and mothers. In another state, a couple filed a lawsuit against a physician after their baby allegedly suffered permanent injuries as the result of a negligent delivery.

Birth injuries can also affect mothers

Like any medical procedure, the birth of a child is a process that must be handled with extreme care and focus. Delaware residents are privileged to have access to wonderful facilities and highly skilled physicians that make childbirth almost routine. During childbirth however, any deviation from the acceptable standard of care can result in devastating injuries to both mothers and infants. Unfortunately, thousands of families across the country are affected by birth injuries every year.
