Manhattan Birth Injury Lawyers
When an unborn child is suffering fetal distress, obstetricians are supposed to rely upon electronic fetal monitoring alerts to notify them and to help them make important decisions about how to manage pregnancy, labor and delivery. Failure to monitor those alerts or the failure to properly respond to signs of fetal distress can result in serious, permanent brain injury or wrongful death to the child. It can also put the life of the mother at risk.
