Yes, you can sue the Michigan hospital or doctor if an unborn child becomes entangled in an umbilical cord. An unborn child who becomes entangled in an umbilical cord can suffer serious and permanent injuries, including brain damage. The flow of oxygen and blood is cut off to the baby when an umbilical cord is wrapped around the neck or in some other compromising position during gestation, labor, or delivery. This lack of oxygen and blood can lead to permanent brain injury and consequences.
Michigan hospitals and doctors should be trained properly to know when an unborn child is entangled in an umbilical cord. If an infant suffers birth injuries to an umbilical cord complication, the parents of the child can file a medical malpractice lawsuit against the Michigan hospital or doctor who was negligent in the care of the unborn child. These types of lawsuits seek compensation for injuries to the child and also for the significant expenses it will take to care for the child over his or her lifetime.
