How to prove nurse negligence

If you feel you have been a victim of nurse negligence during a birth injury in Maryland, you may be wondering if you have enough evidence to prove your case. We at Michael H. Bereston work to advocate for children who are injured during birth and have provided this guide to help you determine whether your child was a victim of nurse negligence.

The long-term consequences of birth injuries

People sustain many different types of injuries in medical centers, from surgical mistakes to medication errors. Having said that, for those who sustain a pregnancy-related injury, or give birth to a child who was injured during the birthing process, the experience can be particularly devastating. At the Annapolis Law Firm of Michael H. Bereston, we have seen firsthand how upsetting and challenging life can be for families who are going through these burdens firsthand.

Birth injuries are not the same as birth defects

Expectant parents want to bring home a healthy child. While this does occur in most cases, there are instances in which cases can take a turn for the worst. For these parents, finding out what is wrong with their child, learning the treatment plan, and understanding the prognosis becomes a priority.

Wrongful birth suit approved

Expectant parents in Maryland know that problems during pregnancy or birth can and do develop. Some of these problems may be congenital and unavoidable by any actions taken by mothers or health care providers. However, this is one of the reasons that prenatal care can be so important as it may offer families the opportunity to learn of these  things before a baby is born. One family in Iowa was denied this ability and now are seeking legal recourse for the denial of that privilege.

Recovering after a pregnancy-related injury

From motor vehicle accidents to slipping and falling, pregnant women can become injured in many different ways. Unfortunately, some suffer an injury at the hands of a negligent medical professional. At the Maryland law firm of Law Firm of Michael H. Bereston, Inc., we are very familiar with the physical, emotional and even financial hardships that pregnant women and entire families who have been through this may encounter. Moreover, these injuries frequently affect the fetus and can interfere with a child's future or even claim his or her life.

Reviewing the pros and cons of assisted deliveries

Here at Michael H. Bereston, Inc., we have helped several families who have tragically seen their babies' lives forever altered due to improper use of tools such as forceps and/or vacuum extractors during delivery. Assisted delivery has helped countless women and newborns overcome complications that, in the past, could have endangered their lives. The question is when is such intervention appropriate?
