Birth Injuries to Mothers Attorneys
Birth Injuries to Mothers Attorneys
Although dying in childbirth is much less common today than it once was, nonfatal but serious injuries to the mother remain surprisingly prevalent, and little discussed. More than half of women who give birth experience tearing of the pelvic skin and muscles. A 2015 Canadian study found that half of all new mothers reported urinary incontinence and residual back pain a year after giving birth.
Common injuries to the mother during birth include:
- Vaginal and rectal tears
- Ruptured uterus
- Prolapsed uterus
- Pelvic floor damage
Injuries to the mother during childbirth can by caused or worsened by improper care, and may have been preventable and unnecessary. When a mother is injured during childbirth due to the negligence of the doctor or another healthcare provider, she is entitled to compensation to address the injuries, medical care and lifetime losses it may cause, and has a right to sue for medical malpractice.
