It Is Up to Your Medical Provider to Avoid a Caput Succedaneum Birth Injury

Caput succedaneum has a number of causes, several of which relate to the method of delivery chosen by your doctor. The most common causes of the condition are:

Your doctor has a responsibility to recognize when the delivery process has become more difficult and strenuous than normal. He or she has a duty of care to take steps to minimize the chances of a birth injury such as caput succedaneum.

If your child develops the condition despite precautions, your doctor has a duty to recognize it right away and monitor it in case it leads to jaundice. The visible symptoms of caput succedaneum include:

By itself, caput succedaneum does not require treatment, only monitoring. If it progresses to jaundice, your doctor should take steps to control it, ensuring it causes no long-term health problems. Failure to do so may constitute medical malpractice, and the Newsome Melton legal team can help you recover damages.

Our Caput Succedaneum Birth Injury Lawyers Help You Build a Compelling Medical Malpractice Case

Caput succedaneum can lead to more complicated medical issues which can result in long-term injury to your baby. If your doctor’s negligence or wrongful action contributed to your baby’s condition, we can help you put together a compelling medical malpractice case and recover damages.

Our team has fought and won many medical malpractice lawsuits on behalf of clients whose babies suffered birth injuries. We know what goes into a successful malpractice claim. It needs to prove these four elements:

Duty of Care

We first must show that the responsible party, whether your doctor, a member of his or her staff, or the medical facility, had a duty of care to you. As long as there was an active doctor-patient relationship, this duty was implied. Therefore, we must show evidence of this relationship.

Failure to Uphold Duty

Next, we need to demonstrate that the responsible party failed to uphold his or her duty of care. To do this, we compare his or her actions to what one would expect a reasonable person to do in the same situation. We can call upon medical expert witnesses to play the role of the reasonable person, reviewing the evidence and testifying about how they would have acted.

Birth Injury to Your Child

The third thing we have to show is that your child suffered a birth injury because of the responsible party’s failure to uphold his or her duty of care. We can lean on several pieces of evidence to make this case, including your medical records, physicians’ statements, and expert witness testimonies.

Economic or Non-Economic Damages

The final element of our case involves listing the economic and non-economic damages you incurred because of your child’s caput succedaneum birth injury.
