Delayed C-Section Injuries
Atlanta Birth Injury Attorneys
In the process of delivering a child, problems can arise at a moment's
notice. Many of these issues can have severe consequences if not addressed
immediately. When an obstetrician fails to order a necessary C-section,
or if the procedure is delayed for too long, the infant may
suffer severe injury. At Goldstein & Hayes, P.C., we provide compassionate legal services
for families who have suffered on account of traumatic birth injuries.
Our Atlanta birth injury lawyers have extensive experience dealing with
the problems caused by
medical negligence. We understand the hardship that can come as a result of malpractice and
are committed to providing the representation families need during the
difficult period of recovery. Our service has helped clients recover more
than $200 million for various injury cases. With recognition as
Super Lawyers®, we are ready to guide you through this time.
Potential Consequences of a Delayed C-Section
Depending on the nature of a birthing complication, a fetus may be at risk of
suffering brain damage, or other problems. In many cases, 30 minutes is the longest a child can
go without surgical intervention. Even a short delay can aggravate these
issues and result in disabilities that last a lifetime.
Common causes for an emergency C-Section include:
- Cord prolapse
- Fetal distress
- Uterine rupture
- Failure to progress in labor
Failure to react to these issues in a timely and effective manner can cause
your child to suffer from oxygen deprivation or other serious injuries,
including significant brain damage. If you believe there were complications
during labor or delivery that were medically negligent, contact our Atlanta
birth injury lawyers today. Our office is located in Atlanta and we handle
