C Section Birth Injury
Having a child is a life changing and exciting moment for most couples. However, for an unfortunate few, childbirth can be extremely complicated. If you have experienced complications following a c-section which occurred as a result of the negligent actions of one of the medical professionals treating you, you may be able to make a successful claim for medical negligence compensation.
C-Section Birth Injury Claim Types
C-sections have known complications which should be outlined to the mother or father if a c-section is being contemplated. If you have fully understood these complications and one then occurs during the surgery this will not usually be able to be used as grounds for a medical negligence claim. If a doctor does not fully inform you of the dangers of the procedure, and complications arise, you may be able to claim for negligence. However, do note that in situations where an emergency caesarean is taking place it may not be possible to do this.
More commonly, medical negligence compensation claims following a caesarean section occur due to one of the following:-
- Surgical negligence: for example, a retained swab or surgical instrument.
- Infection: if an infection has occurred as the direct result of a lack of cleanliness in the hospital, or due to the failure of medical professionals to follow proper preventative procedures, you may be able to claim.
- Birth injury to child
Every c-section negligence claim is different and you may not find that your claim fits into one of these categories. Ultimately when you make a medical negligence claim, your lawyer will have to show that the surgeon, doctor or nurse that treated you acted in a way which a reasonable body of medical professionals would not have. If you are making a c-section negligence claim against a hospital your lawyer will have to show that the hospital was not complying with standards which can be reasonably expected of a medical institution.
