Fetal Distress Medical Malpractice
The attorney will be able to work with you to determine whether there were signs that the pregnancy or delivery was high-risk and required proper monitoring and management so as to prevent injury to mother and child. Some high-risk pregnancies and deliveries can be identified based upon the mother's history, while other complications characteristic of a high-risk pregnancy can be discovered through laboratory testing, physical examinations, antepartum tests of fetal well-being, and fetal monitoring during labor.
