C-Section Mistakes And Informed Consent

Doctors try to avoid C-sections as much as possible. A C-section is a major surgical procedure that can result in significant health risks for the mother. What you may not know is that trying to deliver vaginally presents risks for your baby.

For example, doctors advising women on VBAC (vaginal birth after caesarean) often mention the possibility that the uterus could rupture, posing a risk to the mother. Doctors often fail to tell mothers that such a rupture could result in permanent brain damage to their baby.

Doctors are concerned about the mother’s health and the health of the child, but doctors should not put all that risk on your baby. Yet that happens far too often. If a C-section resulted in a birth injury to your child, our lawyers can fight for your family’s rights every step of the way.

We Work For Injured Patients

Every day, people in Chicago and Milwaukee trust medical professionals to take care of their health care needs. Most doctors and nurses practice safe, effective medicine. It only takes one medical provider’s negligence to cause a serious injury or illness that can have life-altering consequences. A medical malpractice attorney knows how to fight back.

Our lawyers have a long track record of successful representation in medical malpractice cases, including:
