According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), one out of every 8 babies born is premature, equaling approximately 500,000 babies a year. Significant development takes place in the final months and weeks of pregnancy, which if born early can lead to birth defects.
A doctor should only perform a premature birth if there is a sufficient medical reason, such as the mother, and or baby is at risk. If a pregnant woman is healthy and the pregnancy is succeeding well, there is no need to schedule an early delivery. However, if you suspect your doctor didn’t properly treat you and your child, you may have probable cause for a birth injury lawsuit. Our Michigan birth injury lawyers frequently represent children in cases against negligent doctors and hospitals for a baby born premature and their families.
