Unfortunately, many things can go wrong, even when all precautionary measures are taken. Worse, problems can occur during delivery as a result of negligence. For example, a careless doctor, midwife or medical professional may be responsible for a mother or her child sustaining an injury during the birthing process. It is extremely important for negligent medical professionals who are responsible for these challenges to be held accountable.
There are many different reasons why delivery room negligence occurs.
