Failure to Perform a Cesarean Section
Patients must depend on doctors and healthcare professionals before and during a birth to provide timely, accurate information. As such, parents rely upon doctors to inform them whether a cesarean section will be necessary to prevent birth injuries that could result from a natural birth. When doctors fail to perform cesarean sections that would have likely prevented a birth injury, they may have behaved negligently and may be found liable for medical malpractice.
The attorneys of Crowe & Harris, LLP , believe it is imperative that pregnant mothers understand the birth injuries that could occur when a doctor fails to inform the patient that a cesarean section is necessary.
