Was Your Child Injured By the Use of Forceps?
Beam & Raymond: Holding Medical Professionals Responsible for Birth Injuries
When labor becomes difficult, a medical practitioner may use forceps—a
medical instrument designed to extract the baby's head—to pull
the baby through the birth canal. Sometimes an episiotomy (a perineal
incision) is performed so that the medical practitioner can use forceps
to assist the mother during delivery. When an attempted forceps delivery
fails, an emergency
Caesarian section may be required. At Beam & Raymond, our birth injury lawyers in Chicago
have represented many families whose children sustained birth injuries
due to the improper use of forceps during delivery.
Improper use of forceps can lead to the following serious conditions:
- Skull fractures
Blood clots, which can lead to
- Facial nerve damage
- Cerebral palsy
- Facial lacerations or bruising
The proper positioning of the forceps on the child's head is of vital
importance. If you believe your child's
birth injury is linked to the use of forceps, our nationally recognized law firm can
help you pursue compensation.
