Houston Forcep & Vacuum Birth Injury Attorney
Most Birth Injuries Involving Problems with Forceps or Vacuum Extraction Are Caused By Medical Negligence
As birthing techniques have improved, the risk to the child has dropped dramatically. Doctors may still use a vacuum extractor or forceps if there is some difficulty getting a baby through the birth canal. When used properly, these tools are very effective at completing the delivery. When they are not, serious damage can be done to the baby. Doctors are trained on the use of these tools and how they should be applied. If they fail to use these tools correctly, doctors should be held accountable for the damage they cause.

When Important Tools Are Used Incorrectly
Forceps and vacuum extractors are typically used in emergency situations. Doctors and nurses get specific training on how to handle each emergency and the techniques to use in completing a safe delivery. Unfortunately, many babies are still injured by negligence during these procedures.
