Labor & Delivery Malpractice in South Carolina
The joy of a having a new baby can quickly turn to shock and grief if something causes the mother or child to be harmed. Despite technological advances, babies and mothers both face danger during the birthing process. Medical mistakes, or malpractice, during labor and delivery can lead to injury or death to either or both of them.
The medical personnel present for a baby’s birth are expected to monitor the status of the mother and child and to act quickly if problems arise. Medical error or failure to act (negligence) can cause permanent injuries that may adversely affect the child’s life or the mother’s health.
