An unborn child's primary lifeline -- the umbilical cord -- sometimes becomes the most dangerous aspect of an otherwise healthy pregnancy. If your baby suffered birth injury as a result of an umbilical cord complication, it is recommended that you have the case professionally evaluated.
Contact the Phoenix law firm of Patton Law Practice to schedule a free initial consultation with an experienced Arizona umbilical cord complication lawyer. Our legal team includes a medical doctor and registered nurses as well as caring, well-organized office staff members who truly care.
Perhaps your child's umbilical cord was wrapped around the neck, prolapsed, or otherwise abnormally positioned during gestation, labor, or delivery. If the flow of blood and oxygen through the cord was compromised, a twisted and compressed cord may explain a resulting birth defect.
Even a minute or more of blockage of the flow of nourishment through the umbilical cord is enough to harm a baby. Therefore, it is vitally important that doctors closely monitor fetal heart rate during labor and delivery. If deceleration or variability of heart rate due to a nuchal cord (around the neck) during delivery or before a C-section led to brain injury or other harmful consequences, an experienced umbilical cord complication attorney will seek to discover why dangerous conditions were allowed to persist.
