Portland Premature Labor Lawyer

Helping Families Obtain Compensation for Their Infants

Expectant parents look forward to welcoming a healthy baby. However, many babies are born before they reach full gestation. While premature babies are surviving when born earlier than ever before, many will face considerable challenges and require ongoing medical care. If the doctor failed to recognize warning signs or monitor a woman at an increased risk of premature birth, a birth injury may result. Our Portland birth injury lawyer at Angel Law, P.C. represents clients in premature birth injury cases.

Call (503) 862-8666 to schedule a consultation. We will help you determine if pursuing compensation is possible in your situation.

When a Doctor Causes Premature Birth

Medical providers have a responsibility to provide competent medical care during pregnancy and delivery. Unfortunately, doctors and medical care providers sometimes fail to fulfill this obligation. When this negligence results in a premature delivery or medical staff fails to provide adequate care to the baby immediately following the birth, injury can result.

A doctor may be responsible for a premature birth when:

  • Neglecting to monitor the mother
  • Failing to take steps to prevent premature birth
  • Not recommending bed rest when needed
  • Ignoring signs that premature labor may be imminent
  • Failing to take immediate action to protect the baby

If a medical professional fails to provide the appropriate standard of care and a premature birth results, the parents can pursue compensation by taking legal action. Depending on the specifics of the situation and gestational age of the baby, the child may be facing a lifetime of health challenges, such as developmental delays, cerebral palsy, loss of hearing or vision, and respiratory problems.
