Common Types of C-Section Delivery Errors

A C-section, or cesarean section, is the surgical delivery of a baby from his or her mother’s womb via a surgical cut on the mother’s lower abdomen. These surgeries are performed throughout the United States regularly and help countless women delivery healthy babies— when done correctly.

C-sections should only be performed when medical necessity requires it, and they must be done with extreme care. C-sections can pose a substantial risk of bleeding, infection, and other complications. However, in certain circumstances, the failure to perform a C-section may be even riskier.

Common cesarean section errors include:

  • Failure to order a C-section
  • Failure to order a C-section in a timely fashion
  • Failure to recognize fetal distress
  • Lacerations
  • Infection
  • Blood loss
  • Anesthesia errors

Doctors may be careless in their performance of the C-section, which may lead them to cut the baby or the mother. If the baby is cut, he or she could suffer minor scrapes or more serious lacerations, which subsequently increases the baby’s risk of infection. Any cuts to the mother could affect her bowels or internal organs, which could be deadly.

Additionally, if the doctor fails to monitor the mother properly, she could suffer severe blood loss, blood clots, infection, and other issues. If the anesthesiologist provides too little anesthesia or administers the drug incorrectly, the mother may feel the surgery, which can be extremely painful and traumatizing.

Let Our Firm Fight for Your Rights

If your child or the child’s mother suffered any C-section-related injuries, make sure you take the necessary steps to determine if medical negligence played a role. Doctors, nurses, and hospitals can make major mistakes during cesarean sections, and those mistakes can have a lasting impact on the lives of patients and their families. If you were affected, our attorneys can use their medical backgrounds to assess your case and determine the potential cause, liability, and so on.
