Delayed C-Section

Delayed C-Section Lawyers in Atlanta

Were You or Your Child Injured Due to Medical Negligence?

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 cesarean section (C-section), or if the procedure is delayed for too long, the infant or the mother may suffer severe injury.

At Goldstein Hayes & Lina, LLC, we provide compassionate legal services for children, mothers, and families who have suffered on account of traumatic birth injuries. Our Atlanta C-section 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 $400 million for various injury cases.

Contact our award-winning attorneys to learn more about how we can help you with your potential case; call (888) 425-6070 or submit an online contact form today.

Does a Delayed C-Section Cause Birth Injuries?

There are many reasons a doctor may order an emergency C-section. Depending on the circumstances, a fetus may be at risk of losing oxygen, suffering brain damage, or sustaining other injuries. 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. Such issues can lead to conditions like cerebral palsy, developmental delays, and more.

In other instances, a delayed C-section can have serious implications for the mother. Failure to react in a timely manner to birth complications can result in maternal hemorrhaging, permanent injuries, and, in the most severe cases, death.
