Was Your Child Injured During a C-Section?

Caesarian Section Injury Attorneys in Boca Raton

Did Your Doctor Make a Mistake During a C-Section?

The cesarean section (C-section) delivery method is most often used when extenuating circumstances make it dangerous for the parent or mother to undergo vaginal birth. Medical professionals must take the utmost care when performing this delicate operation, as a mistake during the procedure, or failing to recognize the need for a C-section, can lead to serious, long-term side effects for mother and child.

Whether you opted to have a C-section yourself or your doctor recommended one, you may have grounds for legal action if someone was injured during the operation. At Somera & Silva, LLP, our knowledgeable c-section injury lawyers in Boca Raton have extensive knowledge of how C-sections are performed and the various mistakes commonly made by medical staff that could make the hospital responsible for any birth injuries you or your child may have suffered.

Separating a Mistake From an Unavoidable Injury

Birth injuries are difficult situations for all parties involved. No one intends for these incidents to happen and it can be easy to believe that the accident was completely unavoidable. While some complications are inevitable, there are incidents where the injuries could have been prevented through better care from the medical staff. Though the mistake was unintentional, you and your family should not be left to carry the burden of it alone. The hospital should take accountability for its action and provide you with every resource you need to help your family recover.

Common C-sections mistakes:

  • Failure to recognize the need for a C-section and perform one in a timely manner
  • Failure to prepare for the need for a C-section when the staff has been consistently working with the patient and was aware they were a high-risk pregnancy
  • Performed an unnecessary C-section and caused unnecessary strain on the mother and/or child
  • Surgical errors, failure to check patient’s medical history, breach of hospital protocol, or other mistakes that resulted in an injury.

Without medical training, it can be difficult to determine whether or not an accident your family suffered was the fault of the hospital. At Somera & Silva, LLP, not only do our attorneys have medical knowledge and training, but we also have a physician on staff. We can run through the events of your C-section with you and help you figure out if the hospital is liable for the accident or not.
