About Obstetrical Mistakes & Birth Injuries

Obstetrical care is of the utmost importance to ensure a safe and healthy delivery. Childbirth is a time of great vulnerability for both mother and baby, and as such obstetricians have the burden of ensuring they provide the highest quality medical care as in accordance with current accepted standards. A single obstetrical mistake may place mother and baby at risk of injury. An obstetrical mistake may occur before, during or after childbirth and may result in serious birth injury. Depending on the case, a mistake of this kind may cause infant brain damage or paralysis or may inhibit the mother's chances of conceiving in the future.

At Pacific Attorney Group, we handle cases involving obstetrical malpractice and negligence throughout the greater Los Angeles area. Our attorneys have over 35 years of legal experience and are dedicated to providing our clients with the compassionate care they deserve during these difficult times. Although obstetrical mistakes are rarely intentional, they stem from negligence, carelessness or inexperience and can still cause great harm to a family. That is why we are committed to seeking justice on our clients' behalf in civil court - as we work to recover top value settlements and hold the responsible obstetrician or medical care facility responsible for their conduct.

Common Obstetrical Mistakes

An obstetrical mistake may occur at any time but are more likely in difficult childbirths, such as breech births, large infants or prolonged labor. Following are the three main types of obstetrical errors:

  • Negligence in monitoring the fetus during labor/delivery
  • Improper delivery technique
  • Failure to diagnose a condition in the mother or baby that may complicate delivery
