C-Section Injury Attorney

We make things right for your family

Caesarean section (C-section) operations might seem routine. In the United States, nearly one in three women give birth by having a caesarean section operation performed. In many cases, doctors advise women to have a C-section operation for the health and well-being of both the mother and the child.

But doctors don't always explain all the risks associated with C-sections. And when something goes wrong, medical professionals are often reluctant to admit they made a mistake that caused your birth injury.

Our experienced birth injury attorneys can help. That's because we've been there before for mothers and families like yours. For more than 40 years, Goldberg & Schulkin Law Offices has been fighting for the rights of women and children injured due to C-section operation. Our results speak for themselves. In case after case, we consistently obtain sizable verdicts and settlements for injury victims and their families.

Why mistakes happen

There are essentially two types of medical negligence claims that involve C-section error. In some cases, a C-section should have been performed and wasn't, or was performed too late. In other cases, a C-section is performed at the correct time, but a mistake is made during the procedure itself.

In the first type of C-section error claim, health care professionals often miss or ignore symptoms of:

  • Fetal distress
  • Uterine rupture
  • Preeclampsia

There are also other factors that indicate a C-section is the most prudent course of action. Failure to do so could result in serious brain damage or even death.

In the second scenario, mothers and newborn babies may suffer lifelong or fatal complications from injuries such as:

  • Lacerated bowels
  • Damaged internal organs
  • Blood clots
  • Nerve damage
  • Lung problems
  • Heart problems
  • Development problems
  • Brain damage
  • Physical disability
