Representing Cases Of Obstetrical Malpractice
Obstetrical malpractice is a highly specialized subset of medical malpractice that involves cases where a breach of the obstetrical standard of care has resulted in injury to mother or baby.
Obstetrical malpractice injuries may occur as a result of prolonged oxygen deprivation due to delayed delivery or physical injury during the delivery process. These injuries may result in serious and permanent physical and neurological impairments to the baby, including cerebral palsy.
