Pennsylvania birth trauma occurs when a healthcare professional fails to provide safe labor and delivery. A Philadelphia birth injury may refer to any physical damage occurring due to various factors, including prolonged and difficult childbirth. A broad spectrum of more or less severe consequences may be caused by an injury that occurs during or right after birth. Sometimes, birth injuries may be caused even by negligence before the delivery or failure to administer treatment for the fetus or future mother. Let’s focus on those birth injuries caused by doctors’ failures related to strenuous labor. Having a baby is inextricably linked with some risk factors, including congenital diseases and genetic defects. Modern medical equipment and doctors with expertise and skills are there to decrease the risks and focus on mothers’ and babies’ needs. Sadly, even experienced and skilled doctors sometimes fail due to preexisting conditions, fatigue, negligence, mistakes, wrong test results, misreading test results, and many other errors. Doctors should know that every pregnancy and baby delivery is unique and prepared for every possibility. It is estimated that lots of birth injuries could have been prevented. Parents of the baby sustaining life-altering preventable injury or disability may be entitled to sue the hospital and liable doctors for their baby’s irreversible health consequences.
