Fetal Distress

Birth Injury Lawyers in Louisville, KY

After birth, was your child sent to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU)? Were you are told that your child was not breathing well or that your child was suffering from some other immediate health problem? If so, fetal distress may have caused a problem during delivery.

Fetal distress is a condition in which the baby is at risk for permanent brain injury or death due to asphyxia or hypoxia.

If your child has cerebral palsy, it may be the result of fetal distress. Fetal distress can cause permanent injuries if it is not handled properly by your doctors and nurses. Our Louisville birth injury attorneys can help you find out what went wrong and why.

Call our offices at (502) 234-7451 for a free and confidential consultation.

Doctors Are Trained to Recognize & React to Fetal Distress

Doctors and nurses have a variety of tools they use, such as fetal monitors, to recognize fetal distress, including during vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC). They are trained to use these tools and to react appropriately, usually by delivering the baby by emergency means, often by cesarean section.

If they do not use those tools, or if they do not react to the signs of fetal distress, they should be held accountable for the damage that results. Our Louisville birth injury lawyers are committed to holding doctors and nurses accountable when their negligence causes serious injuries.
