Rockford, IL C-Section Injury Attorneys

Stephenson County C-Section Injury Lawyer

Skilled Representation for Victims of C-Section Injuries in Winnebago County Hospitals

A cesarean section, more commonly known as a C-section, is a surgical procedure used during childbirth to make the delivery process smoother or faster if the mother or baby is in distress. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), over 1.2 million deliveries in the U.S. are performed by C-section. This accounts for roughly 32% of all deliveries. Though C-sections are becoming increasingly common, and the procedure is fairly routine, mistakes still happen. If you or your child suffered an injury resulting from a cesarean section error, you may have the right to compensation.

At Mannarino & Brasfield, A Division of Schwartz Injury Law, we understand the pain and heartache parents go through when they or their newborn child suffer harm from a severe birth injury. You enter the hospital expecting a smooth delivery, and due to the negligence or carelessness of the medical staff, you or your child end up with C-section injuries that were easily preventable. Our attorneys will work closely with you during this difficult time, doing everything possible to make the legal process smooth and stress-free. We have a strong track record of success with these types of cases, and we know what it takes to hold those responsible fully accountable.

How Do C-Section Injuries Happen?

There are two main types of medical malpractice when it comes to C-sections:

  • Untimely C-Sections: There are times when there is a delayed diagnosis, or the failure to diagnose the need for a cesarean section. There are signs that doctors should be able to identify well ahead of time, so the procedure can be performed in a timely manner. If a C-section is performed too late, both the mother and child can suffer severe complications.
  • C-Section Procedure Errors: During the procedure, major surgical errors can occur that damage the nearby organs of the mother and lead to serious injuries.

Both the baby and the mother are at major risk of injury from a C-section error. Some of the common injuries babies sustain include:

Some common injuries the mother may suffer include:

  • Internal bleeding
  • Infections
  • Blood clots
  • Anesthesia injuries
  • Bladder/bowel injuries

Like all medical malpractice cases, C-section injury cases are complex and challenging to pursue. A thorough review of the medical records must be performed to determine the exact cause of the injury and which parties are responsible. For this reason, it is important to work with attorneys who have specific experience in this area of law.
