Entire state sued for hospital's alleged negligence

Having a baby is often the most joyous time for a couple. Couples in New York and beyond prepare for the arrival of their baby for nine long months, and they expect that their baby will come into the world happy and healthy. However, when errors are made during delivery, birth injuries can occur. In some cases, both the mother and the child are harmed.

One couple is holding an entire state responsible for the injuries that the mother and child sustained four years ago during the birth of their son.

According to one source, eight hours after the woman arrived at the hospital she was taken to an operating room for a cesarean section. During the routine procedure, the mother suffered a 3-centimeter laceration on her bladder. She later suffered an infection, bowel obstruction and wound separation. Tests also indicated that the couple's baby suffered a skull fracture and subdural hemorrhage.

The couple has filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against the state of Iowa for the negligence of the staff at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

Parents dream of giving their children a normal, healthy life. However, birth injuries can cause damage that lasts a lifetime. Fortunately, when a baby is harmed because of medical mistakes, families may be able to pursue legal action through a medical malpractice lawsuit.

New Yorkers who believe their child suffered birth injuries as a result of a doctor's errors would be wise to consult with an experienced medical malpractice attorney. An attorney can investigate a case and fight to get families the compensation they deserve.
