After the birth of your child, you want nothing more than for him or her to be 100 percent healthy. While this may be what you have on your mind, you never know what could actually go wrong.
It's important that your medical team is on the ball from the moment your child enters the world, as one mistake could have serious repercussions. For instance, failure to recognize respiratory distress syndrome can result in serious injury or even death.
Without immediate treatment, respiratory distress syndrome can lead to:
- Blood clots
- Brain hemorrhages
- Bleeding of the lungs
- Developmental concerns
This health concern comes into play in newborns whose lungs lack full development at the time of birth. Since this can lead to a variety of additional health concerns, it requires immediate treatment.
At our law firm, we're well aware that respiratory distress syndrome is a big deal. We're also aware of the fact that this problem is often overlooked, which leaves a newborn child with serious injuries.

Once you know what to expect in terms of your child's treatment and health, you can turn your attention to the finer details of the situation. This includes a strong focus on what went wrong, why it went wrong and who was responsible. You may find yourself in position to seek compensation from the negligent party.
