Any time a child suffers a serious injury parents feel concerned and frightened. When the injury occurs to a newborn during the delivery process, West Virginia parents may feel even more distraught over the outcome. Unfortunately, negligence and other medical errors on the part of doctors and other staff could potentially cause serious damage, and these mistakes may warrant medical malpractice claims.
It was recently reported that a couple in another state filed such a claim due to injuries their son suffered. Reports stated that the child was born last year, and due to undisclosed issues, the infant suffered a brain injury during delivery. The parents believe that hospital staff members are to blame for the injury due to not following the proper standards of care.
