When Medical Tools Become Dangerous
Vacuum extractors and forceps are used by delivering doctors when a baby is in distress in the birth canal of the mom and needs assistance to be born. While these devices are sometimes necessary for timely delivery, if used incorrectly or with excessive force, your baby can sustain facial scarring, eye injuries, skull fractures, brain injuries or even die.
With decades of experience serving injury victims from our office in Eugene, the Law Office of Robert A. Miller can help you if your child experienced an injury during birth. If your child suffered an injury at birth from either the improper use of forceps or a vacuum extractor, please call or email our office.
We will review the hospital and doctor’s notes of the birth process, and consult with an expert obstetrician to determine if your baby was injured as a result of medical malpractice. If we determine that malpractice has occurred, we will help you hold the providers accountable for the compensation needed to meet your child’s medical care and needs.
