Obstetricians, nurses, and other medical practitioners who are involved during the birth of a child have a very important role to play. They should be experienced enough to monitor the vital stats and make quick decisions in an emergency. According to a report, around 2% of birth injuries result in neonatal deaths and stillbirths. These conditions can leave everybody with physical and mental trauma for life.
Stillbirth occurs when a baby is born and shows no signs of life upon delivery. Negligence on the medical practitioner’s part may include inappropriate prenatal care, administering the wrong medication, failing to identify any life-threatening diseases, or using forceps or any other tool inappropriately. If a baby or its mother has been subjected to any of these medical conditions, then the victim will have a medical malpractice lawsuit to file.
The victim might face a number of challenges while filing a medical malpractice lawsuit. A medical practitioner holds years of experience, and negligent behavior is rare. There will be times when the doctor will do everything they can, yet the baby may be stillborn or the mother will have complications. In these situations, it is not possible to prove the case against the medical practitioner. Also, bringing a lawsuit has its own challenges. The location, court, judge, and jury where the lawsuit has been filed are issues that accompany the legal process that become very challenging.
