Medical Reasons to Avoid a Delayed C-Section in Ohio

The Becker Law Firm, LPA

You should consult with a birth injury lawyer in Cuyahoga County immediately if your child was seriously injured due to a delayed C-section. If performing a C-section could have prevented injuries or saved your child’s life, then you may be able to collect compensation if it can be proven it was caused by a doctor’s careless or reckless actions.

Reasons Necessary to Avoid Delayed C-Section

Here are some medical reasons that should lead a doctor to avoid a delayed C-section:

  • maternal infection;
  • mother had prior C-section;
  • deprivation of oxygen;
  • difficulty with baby passing through birth canal due to larger size;
  • abnormal heart rate;
  • breech position;
  • fetal distress;
  • umbilical cord prolapse;
  • prolonged labor; and
  • plaenta previa/abruption or other problems.

Failure to recognize these medical concerns or a refusal to perform a C-section could lead to the doctor being held liable. A lawyer can help determine if you have a case of medical negligence.

Contact a birth injury lawyer in Cuyahoga County if a delayed Caesarian resulted in your child suffering serious or fatal injuries. Compensation could be available that may address your financial, physical and emotional losses.
