Pittsburgh Vacuum & Forceps Extraction Lawyer
Litigation for Improper Vacuum and Forceps Extraction
Vacuum and forceps extraction of an infant, particularly an infant in distress with a mother who was encouraged to labor for too long, can result in serious physical and developmental disabilities. A doctor or nurse that fails to properly monitor mother and child can find themselves in a position where they have to take extreme measures to deliver a child.
