Miami C-Section Injury Lawyer
Protecting the Rights of Injured Mothers & Newborns in Miami-Dade County
A C-section can be a crucial part of the birthing process if there are
complications that cannot be remedied otherwise. Some women even plan
for a C-section if they know that they could have an increased risk of
complications through standard delivery. However, C-sections themselves
are not free of risks, and, in some cases, a woman and her newborn can
be injured due to preventable mistakes that happen during a C-section

C-Section Injuries to A Mother
birth injuries caused by
medical malpractice affect only the newborn child. C-section errors are unique in that they
can injure both the child and the mother, which can effectively double
the number of plaintiffs with a valid case. Although children cannot file
a claim, so the mother will retain the right to pursue a claim on behalf
of her newborn child.
C-section injuries that mothers may suffer include:
- Internal bleeding
- Post-operation blood clots
- Severe infection around the surgery site
- Injury to the bladder or uterus
- Amniotic fluid embolism or blood contamination
- Increased injury risk during future pregnancies
To treat C-section injuries suffered by the mother, various medical care
might be needed. Most dramatically, an injured mother might need further
surgeries, with complications and risks.
How Often are Babies Hurt by C-Sections?
C-section injury risks are more significant for the mother than for her
baby. The risk of a newborn being injured during a C-section is about
1%. But if an injury does happen to the child, it can be more severe and
life-changing than any injury suffered by the mother.
How do C-sections Affect a baby?
- Increased risk of respiratory issues early in life
- Lacerations due to rushed surgeries
- Unsafe reaction to anesthesia during delivery
- Infection from the mother
It is essential to take your child to a pediatrician for regular check-ups
weeks and months after they are born. If the C-section has caused an injury
or illness and the medical staff has not noticed the injury immediately
after the delivery, the pediatrician might be able to diagnose it. A failure
to diagnose the C-section injury to your child can make the hospital staff
and pediatrician liable through medical malpractice law.
