C-Section Injuries

C-Section Injury Lawyers in Miami

Protecting the Rights of Injured Mothers & Newborns

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 ahead for a C-section if they know that they could have an increased risk of complications through traditional 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 procedure.

Are you reeling from the aftermath of a C-section injury? Do you suspect it could have been avoided if your medical providers had been more careful?

C-Section Injuries to the Mother

Many birth injuries caused by medical malpractice affect only the newborn child. C-section errors are somewhat unique in that they can injury 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, a variety of medical care might be needed. Most dramatically, an injured mother might need further surgeries, which will come with their own complications and risks.

How Often are Babies Hurt by C-Sections?

C-section injury risks are greater 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 the 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 important to take your child to a pediatrician for regular check-ups in the weeks and months after they are born. If there has been an injury or illness caused by the C-section, and that injury has not been noticed by the medical staff immediately after the delivery, then the pediatrician might be able to diagnosis it. A failure to diagnose the C-section injury to your child can make the hospital staff and/or pediatrician liable through medical malpractice law.
