When Is an Emergency Cesarean Section Required?

Categories: Birth Injury

doctors checking woman during laborThere are circumstances where a c-section is the best alternative to keep you and/or your baby safe from harm. A C-section may be the only safe option if your baby is showing signs of distress during labor. An emergency C-section must be accomplished as soon as possible, and certainly within 30 minutes after the decision to deliver the baby is made. A c-section may also be the best option if you had a prior C-section and are experiencing a prolonged labor because of the increased risk for uterine rupture.

At Spangenberg Shibley & Liber LLP, our birth injury attorneys are committed to helping you through the entire process of holding those accountable who were careless in failing to protect you and your baby. We will focus on your rights so that you can focus on your family. Trust that we are ready to help you through the legal process to pursue the compensation that you and your family need and deserve.
