Emergency C-sections are necessary when a critical situation arises during the labor and delivery process. The medical staff should monitor the soon-to-be mother during the labor and delivery process in order to make the appropriate decision to conduct an emergency C-section. Some indicators are fetal distress, placenta previa (where the placenta is nearly covering the cervix), uterine rupture, cord prolapse (the umbilical cord comes out before the baby), or failure to progress in labor. If any of these indicators is present, and the staff does not act, the child and mother could suffer significant injuries.
Poor medical decisions could result in cerebral palsy, seizure disorders, intellectual disabilities, developmental delays and other birth injuries. If your child should have been delivered via C-section, but the doctor and staff waited too long to make the decision, you should seek legal advice. Attorney Johnnie Bond handles cases that deal with delayed C-sections associated with the negligent acts or oversight of medical professionals during the birth of a child.
Birth Injuries caused by Delayed C-sections
Failure to act when a C-section is necessary for the health of the mother and child can result in serious injury or death. Although typically life-saving, because the procedure is surgical and the use of forceps and vacuums may be required, if these techniques are performed poorly or improperly, a child could suffer detrimental injuries such as skull fractures, cerebral palsy, brain damage, hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE), or facial nerve palsy.
