Montana Birth Injury Lawyers
Representing Children Harmed by Medical Malpractice
Negligence by a doctor or nurse in the delivery of a child can create devastating injuries to mother and baby. If your son or daughter suffered a birth injury as a result of malpractice, Hoyt & Blewett PLLC is here to help you hold the at-fault party or parties accountable.
Too often, malpractice insurance providers drastically undervalue claims, delay payment, or attempt to deny their client’s responsibility. They have entire teams of investigators and attorneys who are paid to protect their employer’s interests.

What Is a Birth Injury?
A birth injury may be described as some type of physical trauma sustained before, during, or after labor or delivery. While some birth injuries cannot be prevented and are not related to medical malpractice, others occur due to substandard care by one or more medical professionals involved in labor or delivery.
The following are examples of negligence that could lead to birth injuries:
- Delayed C-section
- Failure to diagnose an infant that is too large to safely pass through the birth canal
- Improperly managing shoulder dystocia
- Failure to diagnose preeclampsia or other serious conditions in the mother
- Improper use of forceps or vacuum in an instrument-assisted delivery
- Medication errors involving mother or baby
- Failure to properly monitor an infant during labor or delivery
- Failure to recognize the signs of fetal distress
