Types of C-Section Injuries
Some examples of injuries connected with C-section births include:
- Lacerations – Sometimes, a C-section incision can hurt the child, causing minor to major lacerations that sometimes require stiches.
- Infant distress – Hypoxia can occur in C-sections, and the child might be susceptible to permanent injury if the health provider is not careful and / or does not provide immediate treatment. Infant distress in C-sections often occurs when the umbilical cord is traumatized or compromised.
- Failure to conduct C-section – Sometimes, the injury in question was not caused by the C-section, but the failure to perform a C-section or the failure to do so in a timely manner. If the doctor failed to direct a C-section when called for, and you or your child suffered unnecessarily as a result, you should speak with a lawyer.
