Los Angeles Fetal Distress Lawyer
During labor and delivery, the obstetrician and attending nurses rely heavily on fetal distress tests and monitors to provide up-to-the-second information about the health of the baby and mother as the birth process occurs. A fetal distress monitor marks the baby’s heartbeat. A fetal scalp sampling may also be used during a difficult delivery to determine whether the baby is getting enough oxygen.
When these tests are used correctly, they can allow the attending physician to take immediate steps to help protect the health of the baby and the mother. However, when doctors or nurses fail to properly monitor signs of fetal distress, the baby can suffer serious injuries.
The technology to detect fetal distress is reliable and commonly used, and injuries or deaths that occur because of a failure to detect fetal distress are inexcusable. If your family was impacted by a birth injury or stillborn, an experienced lawyer can help hold the negligent parties responsible.
