Carmel, Indiana, Brain Injury Attorney
Electronic fetal monitoring allows obstetricians and other medical professionals to view the baby's heart rate. The fetal monitoring strip is strapped to the mother's abdomen during labor. It is a vital part of the labor and delivery process. With the information provided in the fetal monitoring strip, the obstetrician can determine whether the baby is in distress and take appropriate action. Usually, children in distress during labor are delivered via cesarean section or C-section. When those in the delivery room fail to utilize this information, a baby may go too long without receiving proper amounts of oxygen. This condition, known as fetal hypoxia, can lead to profound brain damage, cerebral palsy, or a host of other unfortunate conditions.
If your child was severely harmed in labor or delivery, your child may have a medical malpractice claim. With offices in Indianapolis and Muncie, Jacobs Law LLC has the experience and resources necessary to help your child get the resources he or she needs to live the fullest possible life.
Investigating Birth Injuries to Find the Causes of Negligence

Our lawyers will look closely at the evidence, including the fetal monitoring strip, to see whether or not the obstetrician acted negligently. If there is evidence of malpractice, we will act accordingly.
