Newborn Respiratory Distress Syndrome
What is Newborn Respiratory Distress Syndrome?
Premature infants and newborns are fragile and require special care and attention when they are at their most vulnerable stage of life. When a doctor or medical professional fails to respond to signs of respiratory distress in a newborn, it may be malpractice. If your child has suffered an injury when respiratory distress went untreated or was poorly treated, we can help you understand your legal options and pursue compensation.

Effects of Newborn Respiratory Distress Syndrome
Newborn respiratory distress syndrome occurs most frequently in premature babies. Without proper treatment at the first signs of respiratory distress, the child could suffer:
- Brain hemorrhaging
- Bleeding in the lungs
- Developmental problems
- Blood clots
It is the leading cause of death for infants less than a month old in the developing world. If you have lost a child or if your child suffered a serious injury as a result of negligent care or treatment, we can help. We understand that no amount of money can possibly make up for the pain, heartache and trauma you and your child have suffered. However, we can help you seek justice and hold the negligent parties accountable for their negligence.
