Philadelphia Labor and Delivery Negligence Lawyers

Labor & delivery negligence attorneys at The Colleran Firm

Labor and delivery rooms can get chaotic very quickly. There are numerous doctors, nurses, nurses’ aides, and sometimes residents and medical students involved in the patient’s care. A staff shift change may occur during long births, creating potential for miscommunication and other errors. In many cases, babies are delivered by the obstetrician on call, not the woman’s personal obstetrician. All of these factors can expose the mother and baby to risk.

At The Colleran Firm, we represent injured mothers and babies who were subject to a lower than acceptable standard of medical care during labor and delivery. For a free consultation with a Philadelphia labor and delivery negligence attorney, please contact us online.

Your Family Will Need Adequate Compensation

The cost of caring for an injured newborn or for raising a child without a mother can be considerable. Consult with an attorney to ensure that your rights are protected.

A problem during labor and delivery can result in a birth injury to the fetus or an injury to the mother. These injuries can be catastrophic or fatal, leaving the family with enormous medical bills, the need for long-term care and many other losses. Our law firm can represent families that have suffered losses due to issues such as:

  • Lack of oxygen to the fetus
  • Leaving the fetus in the birth canal for too long
  • Forceps or vacuum injuries
  • Failure to properly monitor the fetus
  • Failure to perform a cesarean section
  • Vaginal birth after C-section (VBAC)
  • Performing an unnecessary C-section
  • A midwife’s failure to refer a patient to a hospital
  • Failure to call a maternal-fetal medicine specialist for high-risk pregnancies
