Omaha Fetal Distress Attorneys
Fetal Distress and Complications During Labor
As the term implies, fetal distress occurs when a baby, either before or during birth, encounters life-threatening complications. In most instances this means the flow of oxygen to the fetus has been cut off and poses a genuine health risk. If you have recently given birth and your baby suffered injuries, that could have otherwise been prevented, you may be able to take legal action.

What Causes Fetal Distress Complications?
While there are a multitude of reasons a baby could encounter trouble before and during the birthing process, it is a doctor's responsibility to ensure their safety the entire time. Any warning signs such as a flagging heartbeat, severe infection or tangled umbilical cord should be met with a timely response by the medical team in charge. Failure to do so could constitute negligence on the part of the hospital staff or overseeing physician. Some missteps taken by medical professionals, that we have encountered include:
- Failure to properly monitor the fetus's heartbeat and biometrics
- Failure to diagnose any potential complications before entering labor
- Failure to perform a timely and effective C-section
