Texas Attorneys for Improper Fetal Monitoring
During pregnancy, labor and the delivery itself, the infant is carefully monitored through a process called fetal monitoring. If the baby does not receive enough oxygen and blood during the birthing process, injuries to the brain may result and advance into many other conditions, including cerebral palsy, that impact the child for the rest of their life.
Delivery professionals are trained to watch for any problems during a delivery. Unfortunately, if this is not done correctly and medical staff do not ascertain that there is a complication, severe injury or even death can occur. If you think that your baby has suffered harm resulting from incorrect fetal monitoring, our lawyers can assist you to action a lawsuit.

Why Is Fetal Monitoring Important?
Watching for issues via external fetal monitoring on the mother and internal fetal monitoring on the head of the baby during delivery ensures that the delivery team can follow the state of the infant´s health throughout. By monitoring the infant using a fetal monitoring strip, the doctors can see if there are any complications, such as a lack of oxygen. This allows them to make urgent decisions such as whether an emergency cesarean section is necessary.
When doctors neglect to check fetal monitoring equipment on a regular basis or the equipment is incorrectly implemented, the doctor may not receive signals that your baby is in danger. Sadly, it is common for medical professionals to conceal their mistakes.
The medical community is well-practiced in hiding negligent errors. Our attorneys are dedicated to securing compensation to help cover your baby´s future care and in doing so, ensuring that the negligent parties are held to account for their lack of care.
