The act of bringing a child into existence is often expected to be a joyful event. However, for certain families, it can transform into a distressing experience as a result of medical negligence during the course of the delivery process.  The Licatesi Law Group recognizes the profound consequences that birth injuries may inflict on families, and hence, we are committed to providing assistance and encouragement to those who have suffered from medical malpractice.

Childbirth is an intricate procedure, and regrettably, errors can occur. The hazards involved with giving birth are substantial, ranging from delivery mishaps to inadequate postnatal care. Physicians may exhibit a lack of awareness towards indications of discomfort in the infant, improperly manage medical instruments during cesarean delivery, or offer insufficient care following childbirth, resulting in significant harm to both the mother and the infant. 

An extremely concerning outcome of medical negligence during childbirth is the inadvertent retention of medical instruments within the mother's body following a cesarean section. These consequences may include infections, internal organ damage, and severe agony for the mother, necessitating further surgical procedures to rectify the error. This level of carelessness is not tolerable and justifies taking legal measures to ensure that the persons responsible are held accountable.

If you have reason to believe that there were complications during childbirth, it is crucial to promptly seek medical assistance for both yourself and your child. Recording any symptoms or issues you encounter is vital, since this data will be important in constructing your case. Seek advice from a well-established legal firm like The Licatesi Law Group, which has expertise in handling medical negligence claims.
