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

C-Section Injuries to the Mother
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.
