Delayed C-Section

A child and his or her parents may have cause to file a medical malpractice claim against an obstetrician or other responsible healthcare provider if a C-section was delayed, resulting in a birth injury.

When can we say that a C-section was unnecessarily delayed? Answers to this question in your case may include one or more of the following factors:

  • Your OB-GYN did not properly recognize, diagnose and plan for a scheduled C-section to take into account risk factors in your pregnancy during prenatal care, such as excess weight of the mother or the baby, gestational diabetes or a previous C-section.
  • During labor, nurses and technicians did not adequately monitor the fetus’s status as indicated by fetal monitoring strips and missed indicators of fetal distress.
  • After your water broke, dilation continued at a slow pace, increasing chances of infection and harm to the baby. Yet your labor and delivery health care team did not take action to ensure that a C-section would be done in a timely manner.

Whatever the circumstances, if your baby was irreparably harmed because a C-section was delayed longer than it should have been, you may have cause to claim compensation from negligent health care providers or the hospital where you gave birth. Talk to a lawyer at Brown, Moore & Associates, PLLC to learn how we can help you.

An unjustifiable delay in a C-section may have left your baby with one or more of these birth injuries:

Delay in a C-section can harm the mother, too. Whether the baby, the mother or both were injured, you owe it to your baby and your family to request an investigation into why a C-section was unnecessarily delayed, despite indicators of its advisability.
