Indianapolis Fetal Monitoring Strips Lawyer
Birth Injury Attorneys Serving Families in the Central Indiana Area
Did your doctor use a Fetal Monitoring Strip During your baby’s delivery? Did your baby suffer a birth injury?
Electronic fetal monitoring allows obstetricians and other medical professionals to view the baby’s heart rate. The fetal monitor is strapped to the mother’s abdomen during labor. It is a vital tool during the labor and delivery process. With the information provided on the fetal monitoring strip, the obstetrician should determine whether the baby is in distress and take appropriate action. Children in distress during labor may need to be delivered via cesarean section or C-section. When those in the delivery room fail to utilize the information provided by the monitor, 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 tragic conditions.
If your child was severely harmed or died in labor or delivery, your child may have a medical malpractice claim. Jacobs Law, LLC has the experience and resources necessary to help your child get what he or she needs to live the fullest possible life, or in the event of the loss of your child, to compensate for this tragic loss.
