Suffolk County Uterine Rupture Lawyers
Nassau County C-Section Negligence Attorneys
Mothers and babies can suffer serious or fatal injuries when medical professionals fail to provide quality care before, during and after the birth of a child. One of the most critical responsibilities for nurses and physicians is to timely diagnose cases in which a mother requires a cesarean section (C-section). When it is determined that a C-section is necessary, hospitals must have staff on hand to perform the procedure immediately, as any delay can cause serious medical complications.
Doctors should be watchful for warning signs that a mother may suffer a uterine rupture. If a risk of uterine rupture is detected, a C-section should be performed to prevent a baby from suffering brain damage or death.
There are a variety of ways that medical negligence can cause complications when mothers require a C-section procedure. The most common error is a failure to timely recognize warning signs of a uterine rupture.
