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.
Birth Injuries That May Result from the Failure to Perform a Cesarean Section
A cesarean section may prevent a number of serious birth injuries that could be sustained through a natural birth. When doctors or other healthcare professionals fail to recommend a cesarean section when it is needed, the following injuries could result:
- Brain damage
- Cerebral palsy
- Developmental disabilities
It is a doctor’s responsibility to prescribe cesarean sections when a natural birth is deemed dangerous. When doctors fail to recognize or act on potential dangers, they may be held financially accountable for their negligence.
