Childbirth-related litigation may result from many different issues, making it imperative that the right childbirth expert witness is selected for your case. Childbirth expert consulting may provide relevant information for cases involving such areas as nurse-midwifery, neonatal-perinatal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics, gynecology, fetal medicine, pediatric pathology, infertility, perinatal clinical nursing, ultrasound, labor and delivery nursing, antepartum nursing, and other related disciplines, as each may become the center of potential litigation due to various unforeseen issues.
Childbirth experts often have experience working as registered nurses, since such care is a significant factor of the childbirth process for both the mother and child. Other childbirth experts may be called upon for their experience with obstetrics and gynecology (OBGYN), as women’s health is an integral aspect of labor and delivery. Like other cases involving medical issues, childbirth expert witnesses may be called upon to provide an expert opinion for claims involving medical malpractice, whether resulting from patient neglect, prescribing the wrong medication, unforeseen side effects, failing to properly inform the patient regarding her treatment and care, or other possible issues.
Childbirth experts may also have experience working with high-risk pregnancy, which would require specialized medical care. Congenital disorders, birth defects, and other such problems may lead to litigation if not properly cared for by the physicians, nurses, or hospital administration.
