Forceps Injuries

A military doctor’s negligent use of forceps during delivery can cause brain damage to you and your baby.

Sometimes doctors use instruments such as forceps to deliver a baby.  Used in the right way by experienced practitioners, these instruments are safe. However, putting the forceps  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.  If you or your baby has been injured during a forceps delivery at an Army, Navy or Air Force hospital, please contact us for help.  An experienced military birth injury attorney will help figure out where things went wrong and then get answers and compensation from the military.  Your consultation is free and confidential.  There is no fee ever unless we get a recovery for you.
