Forceps and Vacuum Extraction Cases

At Brown Moore & Associates, PLLC, we represent birth injury clients throughout North Carolina from our office in Charlotte. Forceps and vacuum extraction errors are among the most common causes of birth injuries and fatal medical errors during birth.

With more than 40 combined years of legal experience, our Charlotte medical malpractice lawyers have handled many forceps and vacuum extraction cases. We have a registered nurse on staff who works with our attorneys to review potential clients’ concerns about possible medical errors. This medical and legal experience, along with the team of experts with whom we regularly consult in our medical malpractice cases, gives us a tremendous advantage.

Injuries Caused by Forceps and Vacuum Extraction

Vacuum extraction and forceps are not necessarily bad. When they work, they can be invaluable for a child’s life and health. However, in rare cases, serious injury or wrongful death results from a doctor’s:

  • Unnecessary or improper use of forceps or vacuum extraction: Forceps and vacuum extraction technology have saved the lives of countless children. They are great tools, but they are also very dangerous; they should be used with extreme care, and only when it is absolutely necessary.
  • Failure to use forceps or vacuum extraction when necessary: Someone should always be watching for signs of fetal distress, especially when a child is not moving through the birth canal normally. Lack of adequate monitoring is a common nursing error. This leads to a slow reaction by the obstetrician, resulting in cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, wrongful death, or other terrible consequences.
  • Defective forceps or vacuum extraction tools: In some cases, the accident is caused not by the doctors or nurses, but by the equipment itself. If faulty forceps or vacuum extraction equipment caused your child’s accident, we can bring a product liability lawsuit for defective design or defective manufacture of the tools.

We keep our caseload small so that we can provide each of our clients with the personal attention needed. We have the medical and legal knowledge to uncover doctor error or nurse error regarding forceps and vacuum extraction injuries.
