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 & Lina, LLC, 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 $250 Million for various injury cases. With recognition as Georgia 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 losing oxygen, 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 affective 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 birth injury cases throughout Atlanta and the southeastern United States.
