No Recovery, You Owe Us Nothing
Labor and delivery negligence occurs when a medical professional or facility makes a mistake (a deviation from the acceptable standard of care) that results in injuries to the mother or the fetus. Negligence in the delivery and recovery rooms give rise to a medical malpractice cause of action.
