When someone goes to the doctor or another medical provider for help, they do so with the reasonable expectation that they will receive the quality care they deserve. Unfortunately, the reality often falls short of this mark, leaving innocent people with preventable injuries and related losses, like decreased wages and reduced quality of life. This isn’t right, and no one should suffer financially because of a healthcare provider’s wrongdoing.

Another tragic form of medical malpractice is birth trauma/birth injuries. These can impede a child’s development and require specialized, expensive care. When a child sustains birth injuries, they must struggle with lifelong health problems, making their ability to find work and care for themselves difficult.

Were you or someone you love hurt by the inadequate medical treatment provided by a healthcare professional in Houston? If so, you could receive financial compensation for your suffering and losses. But holding providers and insurance companies accountable can be daunting and stressful. That’s why you need help from the nationally recognized legal team at Fibich, Leebron, Copeland & Briggs.

What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice is a legal term that refers to a situation in which a healthcare professional fails to provide a patient with the standard of care that another professional of similar experience and training would provide in the same circumstances. When this results in injury to the patient, the patient can pursue a lawsuit against the professional who provided the substandard care.

It’s crucial to note that not all unfavorable or unexpected outcomes in medical treatment constitute malpractice. Medicine is a complex field with diverse circumstances and various risk factors. Even with optimal care, not all treatments lead to the desired results.

Medical malpractice only occurs when there is a clear breach of duty by the healthcare professional, and this breach directly harms the patient.

What Usually Causes Birth Injuries?

While some instances of birth injury are unavoidable, many happen due to delivery doctor error, including:

Failure to recognize fetal distress signs and act accordingly
Inaccurately interpreting a fetal ultrasound result
Not speeding up delivery or ordering an emergency C-section when necessary
Improperly using birthing tools, such as forceps or vacuums
Improperly using drugs like Pitocin that induce or quicken delivery
Not correctly caring for or resuscitating a baby following delivery
