Forceps & Vacuum Birth Injury
Many Traumas after the Use of Forceps or Vacuum Extraction Are the Result of Malpractice
Advances in medical treatments have meant that your baby is far less likely to suffer harm during birth. Vacuum extractors or forceps may still be used if the baby is not moving easily enough from the mother. The implements themselves can be helpful but they can also cause severe harm to the infant if they are improperly used. Medical professionals are well-educated as to how these implements should be used and when. If an implement is applied incorrectly and causes harm, the negligent party should be held responsible for the resulting injuries.

Consequences of Improper Use of Delivery Implements
In urgent circumstances, medical professionals may decide that forceps or vacuum extractors are necessary. However, even though they are well-trained to use these tools, often infants suffer a birth injury due to a negligent mistake resulting from improper use. Some of these birth injuries are listed as follows:
- Blood clots or hemorrhaging
- Marks, bruising or swelling on the scalp
- Facial nerve damage
- Spinal cord damage
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Shoulder dystocia
Our attorneys believe that your baby´s health is the principal factor. Accordingly, we strive ensure that the medical professional responsible for harming your baby is held to account for their mistake. We do this by achieving compensation for you to assist with the costs of your child´s ongoing care.
The medical community tries to conceal the errors made by its members to avoid any liability. It is important that these medical professionals are held responsible for their actions to ensure they work towards a higher standard and hopefully stop another family from suffering as you have.
