Forceps injury identified as cause of boy’s brain damage

Advances in the field of obstetrical and gynecological science in recent years have helped to greatly reduce the number of delivery complications. However, these new improvements may have caused many in Queens to overlook the fact that delivering a baby is still a complicated process. While new technology allows doctors to more easily determine when intervention is needed to assist a delivery, the methods used to perform those interventions can still cause harm. Unfortunately, the victims that experience this harm are often left to deal with the consequences for the rest of their lives.

Such is the case with a young Pennsylvania boy who faces a lifetime dealing with severe cognitive and physical deficits as a result of the brain damage he suffered during his birth. While the exact details of the complications surrounding his delivery were not disclosed, it was reported that a forceps injury was the direct cause of his brain damage. His parents have since sued the doctor involved in his delivery as well as the health center that employs him. A judge recently ruled that the federal government (which owns the facility named in the lawsuit) must pay the family $42 million to help support the lifelong care that it is assumed the boy will need.

Many may assume that those seeking compensation after an alleged case of medical malpractice are simply looking to make the proverbial “quick buck.” What is lost in this assumption, however, is the fact that many such cases (like the one mentioned above) leave a person requiring expensive medical care for the remainder of his or her life. More than anything, that is often the driving force behind these lawsuits. Those looking to initiate such action may wish to enlist the help of an attorney in doing so.
