New Jersey Lawyers Handling Birth Infection Claims

OB-GYN professionals owe a duty of care to both pregnant mothers they care for and their newborn babies. Caregivers should follow accepted standards of care in order to minimize or prevent risk of infection in newborns. When they fail to do so and babies suffer serious harm as a result, parents may wish to discuss the case with an experienced birth injury lawyer.

Many Birth Injuries Can Be Prevented Through Vigilance Of Health Care Providers

Preventing birth infections most often means properly diagnosing and treating a condition afflicting the mother before or during birth. If an OB-GYN fails to diagnose or treat a mother's pre-existing streptococcal infection, listeriosis, E. coli or HIV, a baby may become infected when it passes through the birth canal. Complications such as sepsis or meningitis may develop in a baby who has been exposed to a virus, bacteria or fungus from the mother. Delayed diagnosis and treatment may lead to permanent brain injury.
