Emergency C-Section Lawsuits
You can count on our birth injury lawyers in wilkes-barre/scranton
In the event that obvious fetal warning signs appear, making it apparent that the unborn child could be harmed during the delivery process, it becomes necessary for the attending physician to call for an emergency C-section. Unfortunately medical providers do not always recognize these risk factors.
In other cases it would be prudent for a medical provider to schedule a C-section due to risk factors that would have been apparent during the pregnancy.
If a medical provider fails to perform a C-section if necessary, fails to perform the C-section safely, or fails to initiate the C-section within the proper amount of time, and the baby is seriously injured, it may be considered medical error.
An emergency C-section may be required under the following conditions:
- Fetal distress during labor
- Cord prolapse
- Uterine rupture
- Failure to progress in labor
