C-Section Delivery Errors

C-Section Error Attorneys in San Antonio

Aggressive Representation for the Victims of Birth Injuries

About one-third of all births are completed with a cesarean section. Failing to order a C-section during a particularly traumatic labor or after noting fetal distress can endanger both the mother and the baby. While C-sections are common, things can go wrong. The procedure involves cutting through a mother's abdomen and uterine wall to extract the baby.

If you or your baby have suffered because of medical negligence, you can count on Maloney Law Group, P.L.L.C., to provide aggressive advocacy. We want to fight for better healthcare at a higher standard in San Antonio. We are a boutique firm, which means that you will speak directly with an attorney about your case. Medical malpractice is the focus of our practice.

Risks of a C-Section

While C-sections can be medically necessary, they come with significant risks. The procedure must be done with extreme caution. Like any major surgery, there is the possibility of organ damage or excessive bleeding.

Other risks include:

  • Infection
  • Lacerated bowels
  • Nerve damage
  • Blood clots
  • Lung complications
  • Heart conditions
  • Sepsis

Even the baby is at risk of lacerations during the extraction. Ultimately, the doctors must do everything within their power to meet a high standard of care and do what is best for the patient and infant.

Failing to Perform a C-Section

If your baby is in fetal distress (tangled in the umbilical cord, irregular heartbeat, changing blood pressure) your doctor may order a C-section. Without medical intervention, the baby could suffer damage to the brain or central nervous system.

Preeclampsia, placenta previa, and placental abruption are all serious conditions that require an emergency C-section. Each of these afflictions can put both mom and baby in danger. Doctors may also choose to order a C-section if the mother is having twins or if the baby is breech (not facing the proper way to move through the birth canal.)
