Savannah OBGYN Malpractice Lawyers

There is a risk of unforeseen complications during every pregnancy, but medical professionals should be prepared for it so they can prevent harm to the mother and the baby. When medical professionals commit OBGYN malpractice, they can cause life-altering injuries to the mother or her baby.

The Nye Law Group's Savannah OBGYN malpractice lawyers have secured fair compensation for many victims of malpractice during pregnancy and childbirth. While compensation cannot change what happened, it can give you and your family the financial help you need to provide the best life you can for your severely injured child.

Your initial consultation is free and we work on a contingency fee basis, so we only get paid after you get compensated.

What is OBGYN Malpractice?

OBGYN malpractice can occur during pregnancy or childbirth and it is often due to a failure to monitor the mother or the baby. OBGYN malpractice can include:

  • Failing to perform a cesarean section at the appropriate time
  • Misuse of forceps to aid in delivery
  • Failing to notice problems with the umbilical cord, such as the cord being wrapped around the baby's neck
  • Failing to recognize ectopic or tubal pregnancies

These failures can cause life-changing injuries to the baby, such as Erb's Palsy, Klumpke's Palsy, facial paralysis, spinal cord damage, broken bones and internal bleeding. OBGYN malpractice can also cause injuries to the mother, such as Group B streptococcal (GBS) infection or the uterine infection chorioamnionitis.

OBGYN malpractice includes failure to diagnose birth defects or genetic disorders during pregnancy, including:

  • Cerebral Palsy - This condition is the result of a brain injury that causes cognitive problems and difficulty with walking, eating, talking and fine motor skills.
  • Congenital heart defects - These are structural defects with the heart that can include atrial septal defects, ventricular septal defects and hyperplastic left heart syndrome.
  • Down Syndrome - This causes severe intellectual and cognitive disabilities.
  • Gastroschisis - This causes a hole in the abdomen through which an infant's intestines and possibly other organs can protrude outside of the body.

If your baby sustained a severe birth injury due to negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. Our caring Savannah OBGYN malpractice lawyers have won fair compensation for many victims like yourself.

Effects of OBGYN Negligence

Birth injuries and genetic disorders can change the entire outlook of your child's life. In the cases of Down Syndrome and Cerebral Palsy, your child may need prescriptions, physical therapy, mental therapy, special education and ongoing medical treatment.

You want to provide those things so your injured child can have the best life possible. But paying for these treatments could be quite a struggle, since it could cost hundreds of thousands of dollars over the course of your child's life.

Filing a claim for OBGYN malpractice could provide you the compensation you need to give your child the care they need, including:

  • Current and future medical bills including mental therapy and physical rehabilitation
  • Pain and suffering to cover the emotional trauma that the injuries have caused to the mother and the family
  • Lost wages if the mother is unable to return to work
  • Wrongful death when the mother or baby dies and the surviving family members lose medical benefits, inheritance or consortium

The Nye Law Group's skilled Savannah OBGYN malpractice lawyers are committed to getting you the fair compensation you deserve.
