Birth Injury

Failure to Monitor Fetal Heartbeat

Nashville Birth Injury Lawyers with 100+ Years of Experience

When going through the pain of labor and childbirth, mothers have enough to worry about. It is the responsibility of their doctors and nurses to make sure they are paying attention to the equipment designed to monitor the status and health of the child, both before and during birth.

The state-of-the-art fetal monitoring equipment now in place in most hospitals should eliminate most instances of serious personal injury or wrongful death. However, doctors and nurses fail to pay attention to this monitoring equipment on occasion, greatly increasing the risk to the children.

Did your child suffer fetal distress as a result of medical negligence? If so, we encourage you to contact our Nashville birth injury attorneys for a free consultation: (615) 933-2893.
