Failure to Recognize Fetal Distress
Our Weston Birth Injury Attorneys Can Help You Seek Compensation
Many doctors have the skill and competence it takes to help people grow and thrive throughout the course of their lives; however, others are capable of such gross negligence they often do more harm than good. When you trust a doctor to help you deliver your child, you expect him or her to treat the infant with as much care as you would expect a family member to do. Doctors rely on their expertise and training to know how to respond when problems arise. Obstetricians use fetal monitoring systems and fetal heart rate monitors to determine how the infant is doing during the birthing process. Failure to recognize or respond to infant distress can lead to incredibly serious consequences, including fatal injuries to both child and mother.
Our skilled Weston birth injury attorneys are dedicated to helping parents seek compensation for gross medical negligence after their children are injured before, during, or after delivery. Rash Mueller. can provide compassionate advocacy on your behalf. Let us see what we can do for you and your family.

Signs of Fetal Distress
Before, during, and after delivery, there are certain things every medical professional should be looking for in terms of warning signs. During delivery, some of the following signs could indicate a dangerous complication:
- Umbilical cord issues
- Prolonged labor
- Low fetal oxygen levels
- Abnormal fetal heart rate
- Fetal infections
- Shoulder dystocia
Fetal distress is also more likely to occur if the mother meets specific criteria. For example, pregnant women with chronic illness, pre-eclampsia, or an abnormal amount of amniotic fluid might experience issues. Also, women who are 35 or older or who are carrying multiples usually have to be carefully monitored for problems during birth.
