When Medical Negligence Leads To Infections In Newborns

Group B streptococcus is a common type of bacteria found in the intestines or lower genital tracts. Although it is usually harmless in adults, it can cause serious illness in newborns — including a condition known as Group B strep disease.

In order to adequately protect newborns, mothers must be properly diagnosed as carriers. They can then be treated with preventative antibiotics that greatly reduce the risk of harm to the infant. Failure to do so, and failure to watch the child closely, is considered medical negligence.

At the Law Offices of Raymond J. Slomski, P.C., in Phoenix, we understand the challenges families face when medical negligence occurs before, during or after the delivery of a child. That is why we diligently fight to help these families pursue justice in Arizona courts.
