Aside from not receiving enough information nor the chance to decide for themselves, other women giving birth experience different forms of negligence or receive unnecessary treatments. Some mothers, for instance, say that their health care practitioners ignore their requests for pain relief or pressure them into getting a C-section without giving a convincing reason why. When these things happen, the women may feel that they are losing control and may suffer from the processes of childbirth.
Not every postpartum PTSD stems from medical malpractice. However, if you feel that your health care team displayed unprofessionalism or performed inappropriate procedures, you have to seek legal representation. Long Island medical malpractice lawyers who are familiar with birth injuries, such as The Law Offices of Joseph Lichtenstein, can help determine if you have a case, arrange for settlements or litigation if applicable, and assert your rights.
