Birth injury potential in both delivery methods

Medical physicians are taught and advised to base important decisions regarding patient care and treatment options on the health and well-being of their patients. That means that the intended health benefits of any given procedure and/or therapy should be weighed against the possible complications and side effects. And while just about every medical treatment is accompanied by risks, it seems that labor and delivery protocols in facilities throughout New York and other states across the country reflect medical malpractice concerns and costs.

While the vast majority of babies are correctly situated in the womb at the time of delivery, a relatively small percentage of babies are breech. In such cases, the baby's feet and bottom come out before their head, presenting a number of potential complications and health risks to the child. Delivering breech babies by cesarean section is a widely accepted and preferred form of delivery in the U. S., since one popular study suggested that attempting to deliver breech babies vaginally is less safe than delivering by C-section.

There are techniques that doctors use to turn babies in the womb prior to delivery and vaginal breech deliveries are conducted successfully under some circumstances. However, American doctors are generally reluctant and less experienced in performing vaginal breech deliveries. And as one New York physician noted, medical malpractice insurance providers are often reluctant to cover such procedures. Interestingly, however, C-sections are associated with their own risks and medical mistakes.

Birth injuries caused by difficulties and/or medical errors made during delivery can be grounds for medical malpractice claims in many instances. Attorneys experienced in birth injury cases can help families facing such issues understand their rights and legal options.
