Neonatal & Newborn Distress Malpractice Lawsuits

Our Michigan birth injury lawyers handle cases involving neonatal malpractice claims.  A neonatologist must carefully monitor the baby for signs of distress before delivery.  It is essential to properly monitor the newborn for any signs of distress.  If there is any evidence of fetal distress or newborn distress, the physician and nursing staff must initiate treatment quickly to avoid permanent harm or injury to the baby.

In some instances, the doctors or nursing staff fail to timely recognize this distress and this can cause significant harm.  The failure to recognize distress can be the result of many reasons, ranging from an understaffed neonatal department or simply just negligence in failing to properly monitor the baby. When this happens, the doctors and hospital can be subject to a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Neonatal Medical Malpractice Cases

Neonatal medical malpractice  cases often result in significant settlements and jury verdicts because of the cost of care for the special needs of the child throughout his or her lifetime. This includes costs for medical expenses, special education, specialized housing and transportation, and supervision.
