Premature births carry enormous risks for newborns, including internal bleeding and necrotizing enterocolitis, a bowel infection common in pre-term babies.
While medical professionals are supposed to assess expectant mothers for problems that may lead to a premature birth, and take whatever steps are necessary to reduce the risk, problems with maternal health are too often overlooked by busy doctors and their staff.
When your doctor in the New Orleans area missed important health information that resulted in a premature birth and internal bleeding in your baby, you may be eligible for compensation based on a medical malpractice claim.
The only way to know for sure is to consult with experienced New Orleans birth injury attorneys who can properly evaluate your case and help you understand your options going forward.
