Vacuum extraction injuries


Sometimes doctors use instruments such as forceps or a vacuum extractor to deliver a baby.  Used in the right way by experienced practitioners, these instruments are safe. However, putting the forceps or vacuum in the wrong place on the baby’s head, squeezing or pulling too hard, or trying to pull the baby out too many times can result in catastrophic injuries such as massive brain bleeding, skull fractures, and injuries to the nerves of the neck, shoulder and arm resulting in paralysis.

A mother can also be severely injured in the pelvic and perineal area by inappropriate use of forceps or vacuum extraction. If you or your baby has been injured during a forceps or vacuum assisted delivery at an Army, Navy or Air Force hospital anywhere in the world, please contact us for help.  We offer free consultations with an experience military malpractice lawyer.  There is no fee if there is no recovery for you.
