Cesarean Section Complications

Cesarean Section Complications

The New England Journal of Medicine states that over 30 percent of all deliveries are by Cesarean section (more commonly known as “C-section.”) Though, C-sections are considered routine procedures, problems can occur. Even though most doctors are to identify and handle cesarean section complications, unfortunately there are documented complications involving this type of birthing option.

Cesarean Sections in Medical Malpractice Cases

Each year, medical malpractice suits account for hundreds of millions of dollars in settlement awards. Included in medical malpractice suits is physician malpractice, which is defined as an act of omission by a physician who fails to follow through with a standard duty of care, and as a result, unnecessarily harms the patient.

Physician malpractice associated with errors during cesarean sections is highly common. If you or your baby were injured because of above factors, it’s important to know you may file a claim against your doctor (and quite possibly the hospital) where you were cared for. You do need to meet four requirements, by law. Those burdens of proof are:

  • You Were Owed a Duty by Your Doctor to Perform Your C-Section According to the Medical Standard of Care
  • The Doctor’s Standard of Care, from the Birth of Your Child, Spiraled Downward
  • Because of Negligence, You or Your Baby Were Harmed
  • The Negligence was Directly Responsible for the injuries.
