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.

How to Know and Protect Your Rights If Your Child Has Suffered a Birth Injury

At Hastings Law Firm, our tenacious attorneys are here to act on behalf of you and your family if you child has sustained a birth injury. Our attorneys have secured millions of dollars in compensation for clients who have suffered due to medical negligence throughout the state of Texas. Our strong record of successful settlements and verdicts prove that we are committed to ensuring that medical professionals are held responsible for their mistakes.

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.

Fantastic law firm! Getting our negligence case settled took longer than originally expected but in the end the results were well worth it. Mr. Hastings and his office were always professional, polite, and thorough in explaining my case to me. Bug thanks to him and his staff for helping me through this ordeal.

Gus Morton

We couldn’t have made a better choice by hiring the Hastings Law Firm to represent us. The staff was always professional but they showed real concern for our case and made it personal. If you need a great law firm, I would happily recommend them.

Ernie Wolford

Tommy is a great guy, genuinely concerned about his clients. This is evident in not only how he runs his firm but the fact that he chose to focus on medmal, something other attorneys have abandoned. If you’re looking for someone that will fight for you tooth and nail, he’s your man.


Tommy Hastings and his staff provided a much needed voice for us during our crisis. His attention to detail went beyond the scope of simply practicing law. He is honest, informative, pragmatic and communicated well with us from start to finish. In a sea full of competing attorneys, Tommy has cast a reputation for himself as the very best. I highly recommend his services.

Kellie Rhodes

Tommy Hastings went above and beyond during my crisis. He genuinely cares about his clients and delivered a straight-forward, honest method to resolve my issue as quick as possible. If you want the best of the best then look no further. You’ve found him.

Kendall Webb

I was represented better than I could have ever imagined. My needs were put first and was treated as a friend rather than a number. My opinions were valued, my nerves were calmed and the process was always explained. Tommy Hastings and his staff go above and beyond! I couldn’t have asked for a better law firm or attorney!

Joy Love

I can’t say enough great things about this law firm. The staff was friendly and courteous every step of the way. They kept me informed and explained all of my options. Tommy was amazing to work with and I couldn’t be more satisfied with my outcome. If I could give him 10 stars, I would. If you don’t go with Hastings, you are doing yourself a disservice. Highly recommend.

Misty Peterson

I would highly recommend Tommy and his law firm. He represented us in a case where a simple surgery left my mother permanently disabled. His staff was very professional and diligent and kept me well informed throughout the case. In the end we are happy with the settlement she received and feel lucky to have had Tommy as our attorney.

Earica Robert

My brother had an unnecessary surgery which left him with severe neurological issues. We called several attorneys but chose Hastings because of their focus on cases like this. While the case is still pending, we’ve already received a settlement offer that was very close to what we were looking for. Many thanks go out to Tommy and his great team!

Devin Schumacher

We’re blessed to have found the Hastings law firm. Tommy and Greg were outstanding! Both attorneys were very responsive, professional, and helpful with any questions we had about our case. Their entire staff went above and beyond to keep us updated and most of all, calm. My family feels as though we have been made (mostly) whole again. Thank you both for your hard work.
