Rhode Island Delayed C-Section Lawyer

Birth Injury – Providence RI Attorneys

http://www.delucaandweizenbaum.com/ 401-354-7233 At DeLuca & Weizenbaum, LTD. in Providence, RI we are highly experienced at handling various types of birth injury cases. If your child has been injured due to medical neglect, we can help.

In some deliveries, there are serious risks of delivering the baby by vaginal birth. In these cases, the doctor must consider delivery by C-section. When a doctor fails to do so and it results in injury or death of mother or child, it may be a case of medical malpractice.

If you or a loved one has been injured due to a delayed C-section or failure to perform a C-section, the attorneys at DeLuca & Weizenbaum are here to protect your rights. We have extensive experience and a proven record of success handling birth injury cases for clients throughout Rhode Island.

Contact us today online or by telephone at 888-876-9415 to speak with an experienced Rhode Island delayed C-section attorney.

Delayed C-Section Injuries

Carefully monitoring the mother and child prior to delivery should alert medical staff to the necessity of performing a C-section. In some cases, however, warning signs are ignored, or missed altogether, or worse, a C-section is not performed because it is inconvenient or not covered by insurance. Whether the C-section is delayed or not performed at all, it can result in serious injuries to the child or mother.

Signs that a C-section may be necessary include:

  • A baby with a large head or mother with a small pelvis
  • The baby shows signs of fetal distress, such as a slow heart rate
  • Fetal monitoring that shows reduced fetal heart rate during contractions
  • The baby's feet would enter the birth canal first (breech position)
  • Umbilical cord prolapse
  • Placental abruption

In handling a delayed C-section case, our attorneys must determine how the injury took place and if medical negligence played a role in the incident. We have the resources to find the facts in these cases, including access to an elite network of experts in obstetrics and other relevant fields. If you or a loved one suffered a birth injury due to negligent medical care, we can help you seek justice and compensation for your losses.
