C-Section Error Attorneys in New Hampshire

Contact Our Firm if You, Your Child, or Your Loved One Were Harmed

Cesarean delivery (C-section) is the surgical removal of a child from the womb when vaginal delivery is not desired or possible. In some cases, emergency C-sections are ordered when the child or mother is in danger during traditional labor or vaginal delivery. Because this is a surgical procedure, there are many opportunities for something to go wrong. Though rare, C-section errors can have devastating consequences, both for the newborn and the mother.

If you or your child suffered injuries as a result of C-section errors, Abramson, Brown & Dugan can help. Our New Hampshire C-section error attorneys have assisted individuals and families when medical negligence resulted in the injury or death of a loved one. We understand how overwhelming the legal process can be in the face of such serious situations, which is why we act as an aggressive advocate and tireless guide for our clients.

Contact our firm online or by phone at (603) 323-4622 to learn more about how our lawyers can help you. We offer free initial consultations and contingent fees.

Common C-Section Errors

As stated above, there are many things that can go wrong during a C-section procedure. Poor training or lack of experience may cause a doctor or nurse to make an otherwise preventable mistake. Such mistakes can be extremely harmful for the infant, the mother, or both.

Common C-section mistakes include:

  • Failure to perform a C-section
  • Untimely C-section
  • Improper response to fetal distress
  • Botched C-section surgery
  • Medication/anesthesia errors
  • Lacerations to internal organs
  • Broken bones
  • Oxygen deprivation
  • Lacerations to the child

This list is not comprehensive; other mistakes may occur during a C-section. Any time a nurse, doctor, or other medical practitioner fails to provide a reasonable standard of care, they have acted negligently. When this negligence causes you, your child, or your loved one harm, you are entitled to take legal action against the liable parties.

Aftereffects of C-Section Errors

Mistakes made during a C-section surgery can lead to a wide-ranging list of complications and injuries. The newborn may suffer breathing problems, including anoxia and/or hypoxia if a C-section is not carried out in a timely manner. This can, in turn, lead to brain damage, developmental delays, and other problems. If a C-section is not performed correctly, the infant may suffer external injuries or internal injuries, depending on the errors made.

When C-sections are incorrectly performed, the mother may also experience extensive injuries, including lacerated bowels, organ damage, internal bleeding, infection, blood clots, or uterine rupture. She may also have a poor reaction to anesthesia and be at an increased risk of complications in future pregnancies.
