Who Is Liable for Carmel Birth Asphyxia Injuries?

In birth asphyxia cases, the liability will depend on who was overseeing your labor and delivery and the cause of your infant’s injuries. You may have the right to file a birth injury lawsuit against:

  • A midwife or doctor who was not properly monitoring your baby throughout the pregnancy
  • A nurse, midwife, or doctor who was not properly monitoring the labor and delivery and did not intervene when necessary
  • The hospital or birthing center where your child’s injury occurred, particularly if a staff member’s negligence led directly to your infant’s permanent injury
  • An alternate care provider who did not intervene at any signs of pregnancy complication (this is separate from the medical staff that oversaw your labor and delivery)
  • A nurse, respiratory therapist, or doctor who failed to provide appropriate care for your baby post delivery
