Was Your Child Injured Due to a Delayed Or Untimely C-Section?

A Cesarean section, commonly referred to as a “C-section,” is a surgical procedure performed when a baby is in distress during birth or when problems are identified prior to birth that will prevent the baby from having a smooth delivery. Doctors are trained to be aware of these possibilities and know what they mean for the life and health of the child. Sometimes, doctors are negligent and cause birth injuries involving delayed or untimely C-sections.

Protecting Your Rights When Your Child Has Been Injured

At Hastings Law Firm, our attorneys are aggressive in their protection of your rights and interests after your child has suffered a birth injury. We have obtained millions of dollars for families who have been victims of medical malpractice all over the state of Texas with the representation of our baby injury law firm in Houston. Our extensive list of successes shows our dedication to holding members of the medical establishment liable for their negligence.

Everyone in our office gets to know you and your family. We form a personal relationship with you so we understand how your child’s birth injury has affected all of you. We find that this helps us think differently about you and your case. We are more dedicated to your cause when we know what’s at stake.

An Important Decision with A Big Impact

Once doctors make the decision to perform a cesarean section, they have about 30 minutes to act. Waiting longer than that can cause harm to the baby. Some conditions require that the C-section is performed right away. If a doctor fails to recognize the symptoms that may lead to birth injury, or delays making the right call, he or she should be held accountable for that mistake.

Common Reasons to Perform a C-section Include:

  • Fetal distress
  • Slow fetal heart rate
  • Placenta previa
  • Uterine rupture
  • Umbilical cord prolapse
  • Slow progress of labor
  • Failure to progress in labor

Doctors can miss the symptoms that indicate any of these problems. Improper fetal monitoring and failure to communicate clearly with birthing staff are both regular mistakes in emergency situations. Delaying the decision to operate until it is too late and the harm is already done is another.

Doctors, nurses, hospitals and birthing centers all hide behind the barrage of excuses the medical establishment has created to protect itself from liability. But mistakes are made and covered up frequently. Our lawyers hold members of the medical community accountable for those mistakes. Our medical knowledge helps us pinpoint where the mistake occurred and how the standard of care was deviated from. We hold your doctor accountable and gain the compensation you will need to care for your permanently injured child.

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.
