Q: Are doctors always responsible?

A: No, doctors can’t be responsible all the time. For example, if the baby is too large, it may be difficult for caregivers to deliver.

Q: What types of expertise needed in birth cases?

A: There are many types of expertise needed. For example, Health care providers may use forceps or a vacuum traction machine to reposition the baby or force the baby through the birth canal. Causality is the relationship between injury and physician failure to perform duties. If the doctor did nothing wrong, there is no valid claim just because the baby was injured during birth. Similarly, your doctor may have made a mistake, but you have suffered no real harm. To win, you must prove that the doctor’s mistakes caused or contributed to your injury or your child’s injury.
