Vacuum extraction injuries


Negligent use of  vacuum extraction during birth can give a baby a devastating traumatic brain injury.

Sometimes doctors use instruments such as a vacuum extractor to deliver a baby.  Used in the right way by experienced doctors, these instruments are safe. However, putting the  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 and Erb’s palsy.

A mother can also be severely injured in the pelvic and perineal area by inappropriate use of  vacuum extraction. If you or your baby has been injured during a 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.
