Compensation for permanent birth injury Wisconsin lawsuit nets $3.5 million dollar settlement amount
Can you sue for a birth injury?
Yes, you can sue if there was an injury to the baby during birth due to medical negligence of the doctor or other medical professionals. Warshafksy won a $3.5 million dollar settlement for a medical malpractice case where the misuse of a vacuum extractor during birth left the child with permanent brain damage.
Child suffers brain damage from negligent use of vacuum extractor
It’s a mother’s worst nightmare. After nine months of pregnancy and energy devoted to preparing for the birth of your child, your obstetrician delivers your baby negligently. Catastrophic, life-changing damage results. In September 2001, Warshafsky Law Firm took up the case of a young girl who suffered severe brain damage because a doctor improperly used a vacuum extractor during her birth.
Jerry Bloch, brain injury lawyer of the Warshafsky Law Firm, was able to prove the doctor improperly used a vacuum extractor during the infant girl’s delivery, permanently injuring her. The tragic consequences will follow her for the rest of her life. Bloch took the case to court and got the absolute most for his client, attaining a 3.5 million dollar settlement. The Society Changing Judgment forced the medical industry to reevaluate how they use vacuum extractors during childbirth, preserving the livelihood of future newborns.
Medical malpractice occurs even on typically safe procedures
In recent years, using a vacuum extractor has become a more popular method for child delivery than forceps. The process is supposedly safer and involves less risk for the mother and child. A vacuum extractor is meant to be used to avoid a cesarean, a procedure potentially dangerous for mothers. Although most injuries resulting from vacuum extractors are minor and heal within a few days, there is potential for disastrous mistreatment.
Unfortunately, there is no universally applied procedure for the use of vacuum extractors. There are still risks, and it takes a vigilant obstetrician to deliver your baby successfully. No practicing physician, even one with decades of experience, ever has an excuse to coast through a procedure because of its supposed simplicity. Presuming safety opens a window to apathy and negligence. Safe procedures become hazardous when a negligent actor is performing them. The Milwaukee personal injury attorneys at Warshafsky are armed with the knowledge and motivation to attack them and pursue justice.
