Unfortunately, what should be a celebration is also one of a woman’s most medically dangerous moments—danger that can be exacerbated if a medical professional is negligent or reckless. Obstetrical nurses are there to monitor and evaluate the vital signs of a mother, the progress of labor and federal heart teams, and advise the obstetrician if anything seems awry. Should that nurse fail to recognize problems with those signs, fail to report them, or should the obstetrician fail to appropriately address the issues, serious injuries can result.
Those injuries can be permanent or even life-threatening—and can be enormously expensive. At Hampton & King, we can work with professionals to calculate the cost of a delivery room error, taking into consideration future costs such as surgery, needed medical equipment, nursing care, physical therapy, and more. Our New Mexico birth injury lawyers will also consider less concrete costs, such as the cost of diminished life quality.
