Excellent health care needed to avoid birth injuries

Awaiting the arrival of a new baby is both an exciting and a stressful time for new parents. Pregnant parents are generally aware of the importance of excellent health care to ensure their baby is born healthy and will put their trust in their team of health care workers. New Mexico parents under the care of a team of medical professionals focused on what is best for mother and baby may forget that things can go wrong, even at birth.

Anyone who uses New Mexico roadways knows they could potentially become harmed by another driver's negligence.

Hypoxia: A serious birth injury

Medical malpractice leads to birth injuries far too often in New Mexico. In many cases, a birth injury can be caused by non-treatment-related factors, such as an accident, poor diet, drug use, alcohol use, smoking or just by random chance. However, the very serious birth complication known as hypoxia can be caused by either medical malpractice or non-doctor-related factors. If your baby suffered a birth injury due to hypoxia, you may want to determine if your doctor and/or the medical staff were at fault.
