Schenectady, Albany, Troy, Saratoga Labor Complication Lawyers
While modern medicine has made childbirth safe in almost all cases, there are still emergencies that can threaten both mothers and children. Obstetricians and nurses have a responsibility to take reasonable steps to identify these emergencies and respond to them effectively.
When doctors, nurses or hospitals do not live up to their responsibilities, they can be held accountable. At the law firm of the Law Offices of Sanford Rosenblum, P.C., our Albany delivery complication lawyers help clients pursue maximum compensation from negligent doctors and other medical professionals.
Did Your Doctor Correctly Diagnose Your Condition?
There are a number of emergency conditions that can develop before and during labor and childbirth. Generally, these can be detected through the correct use of diagnostic procedures and ultrasound equipment. The following are some major types of labor and delivery complications:
- Placenta previa: This is a condition where the placenta fully or partially covers the cervix, obstructing normal childbirth. It can cause hemorrhage in the mother and deprive the baby of oxygen.
- Uterine rupture: Any full or partial breach of the uterine wall is a serious emergency that can prove life-threatening for both the mother and the fetus.
- Umbilical cord prolapse: This is a condition that occurs when the umbilical cord enters the birth canal before the fetus, potentially cutting off the oxygen supply.
Obstetricians and labor and delivery nurses are highly trained to recognize and respond to these and other childbirth complications. Unfortunately, some of them neglect their responsibilities, resulting in serious injuries and fatalities to mothers and children.
