Texas C Section Injury Attorney
Attorneys Handling Delayed or Untimely C-Section Malpractice Lawsuits
Did a Mistimed C-Section Cause An Injury to Your Child?
When there is an issue identified during pregnancy or there are complications during birth that may prevent a safe delivery, doctors will often make the decision to complete a Cesarean section operation (otherwise known as a “C-section”). Doctors are educated to identify any potential issues and should be in a position to act quickly and in the best interests of the health of both mother and child. Unfortunately, if a doctor is negligent and does not complete a C-section at an appropriate time, the baby may suffer from a birth injury.

We are a people-orientated firm and our entire team will get to know you and your family. We are dedicated to taking a personal interest in your case as we aim to understand how your baby´s birth injury has impacted your lives. This ensures that we treat each case on an individual basis and fuels our dedication to achieve success.
A Significant Decision with a Strong Impact
Doctors often have to act quickly as they have approximately 30 minutes to execute a C-section should they make the decision to proceed. If they wait any longer, this may result in an injury to the baby. In some circumstances, the C-section must be performed on an even more urgent basis. If the doctor does not identify the need for a C-section in time, the baby may suffer a birth injury and the doctor should be held responsible for this lack of judgement.
Some Reasons C-sections Are Required Include:
- Fetal distress
- Slow fetal heart rate
- Placenta previa
- Uterine rupture
- Umbilical cord prolapse
- Slow progress of labor
- Failure to progress in labor
Although well-trained, doctors may miss the signs that one or more of the above issues are present. Often this is the result of irregular fetal monitoring or delayed communication with other birthing staff. Unfortunately, failure to make the decision to operate quickly can mean that the baby suffers from harm.
The medical community aims to protect the responsible medical professionals by throwing up all kinds of excuses and defenses. Tragically, mistakes are often made and hidden by the medical establishment to avoid liability. The goal of our attorneys is to ensure that those responsible are held accountable for their negligence. Our extensive knowledge of the area of medical malpractice helps us determine where the error transpired and where there was a lack of proper care. We will pursue compensation on your behalf which will help you and your child going forward.
