A cesarean section (C-section) or surgical delivery of a baby is, in many cases, a fast, safe way to get the birthing process over with without a long labor. This can be a critically important solution when there is a good reason for a mother to avoid vaginal delivery. It is often the procedure of choice when a fetus is over-sized, is in a breech position or is in distress during labor or delivery. Failure to perform a C-section may be considered a form of medical malpractice when there were clear indications that a soon-to-be-born baby’s well-being would be endangered otherwise.
When doctors who are experts in obstetrics evaluate birth injury cases, one of the things they look for is whether the attending obstetricians did not plan for a C-section appropriately, or did not respond appropriately to signs of fetal distress during the birth process. If your child now faces a lifetime with cerebral palsy after your obstetrician failed to perform a C-section in a timely fashion, you are doing the right thing by looking for a birth injury law firm.
