You can sue the physician or doctor that improperly used the vacuum extractor during causing your baby to suffer a brain injury. Vacuum extractors are often used during the birthing process to assist the doctor with the safe delivery of the child. This instrument must be used properly and safely or there can be significant injury to the baby, including brain injury or damage.
Physicians should be properly trained to use a vacuum extractor without injury to the baby, however when a baby suffers brain injury due to vacuum extractor during delivery, and it is because the physician or doctor use the instrument improperly, the physician or doctor is considered to be negligent and you do have means to sue them for their negligence or medical error.
