Complications of Emergency C-Section
A doctor’s failure to promptly perform a necessary cesarean section (C-section) can result in severe injury or even death for the baby or mother. In other cases, obstetricians unnecessarily perform C-sections that cause injuries or complications. Either way, if you are a victim of medical negligence, it is important to speak with a personal injury attorney about your rights.

Was Your C-Section Necessary?
Our background includes handling many issues that can be related to the need for a C-section birth, including:
- Abrupted placenta
- Premature rupture of membrane
- Umbilical cord complications
- Breech births
- Babies too large to be delivered vaginally
Whether planned or an emergency, C-sections have become more frequent. It is important to remember that a C-section is surgery and there is always a risk the mother could bleed to death as well as suffer other complications. Often, an obstetrician must make quick and accurate decisions about whether to perform a C-section. When the baby is suffering fetal distress, even a short delay in delivery can cause brain damage to the baby. Our malpractice attorneys work with ob-gyn experts and surgical specialists to determine if an emergency C-section was needed, how it was performed and whether injury could have been avoided.
Handling Cases Involving Emergency C-Section for Preeclampsia
Preeclampsia is high blood pressure in the mother that can deprive a fetus of oxygen. Failing to perform a C-section in time can lead to severe birth injuries such as cerebral palsy or hypoxic brain injury. Injuries to the mother are also common.
At MyPhillyLawyer, we can help expose the truth. We will seek justice for the life-altering consequences of an avoidable or delayed emergency C-section and other medical malpractice claims.
