Neonatal And Newborn Intensive Care

A baby may be admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) when born prematurely or if they suffer other medical problems after birth. Fortunately, many delicate lives are saved thanks to the advancement of neonatal care and specialized training of the medical professionals who work in the NICU. But sadly, far too many errors still happen in the NICU, which can result in devastating consequences for newborns and their families.

Some of the most common reasons babies are admitted to the NICU include:

  • Premature birth
  • Infections
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Respiratory Distress Syndrome
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE) – insufficient flow of oxygen and blood to the baby’s brain
  • Perinatal depression
  • Maternal chorioamnionitis – an infection of the placenta
  • Sepsis – a serious or life-threatening complication of infection

At Ross Feller Casey, our neonatal malpractice attorneys will investigate how your baby ended up in the NICU and whether your baby’s injuries were caused by malpractice or negligence.

How Do I Know If NICU Malpractice Caused My Baby’s Injuries?

Neonatal medical malpractice may have caused your baby’s injuries if medical professionals didn’t take the proper actions to respond to your child’s condition, they didn’t treat the condition at all, or they delayed proper treatment. Additionally, if doctors did treat your baby but didn’t disclose the risks of the treatment to you, it may also be considered medical malpractice.

With the intricacies involved in neonatal cases, it’s very difficult to know if malpractice caused your baby’s injuries. You must contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney to examine your case and determine if you have a valid lawsuit. The legal system is complicated, and there are many hoops you will be forced to jump through to get the justice you and your family deserve. You need an attorney knowledgeable in NICU cases to help you navigate your claim.
