Forceps are instruments that are used by medical professionals during delivery to assist with pulling a newborn through the birth canal. They must be used at appropriate times and in accordance with established and accepted medical protocol. If the physician departs from these standards of care and causes injury as a result of their negligence, they can be held liable for the damages their victims suffer.
