Some C-Sections are controversial. The reported increase in women scheduling C-sections to avoid vaginal births or to better plan for the arrival of their little one has some experts worried about the practice. Other C-Sections are not controversial. Emergency C-Sections, for example, may be necessary to protect the health of the mother and child.

Of course, many C-Sections happen because they are medically necessary and between these two extremes. However, no matter why the C-Section occurs, it may present risks to a child. Specifically, a child who is born via C-Section may:
  • Have an increased likelihood of suffering breathing problems. If these breathing problems are not appropriately anticipated, diagnosed and treated, oxygen deprivation, or death, can occur.
  • Suffer cuts or other injuries related to the surgery. The severity of these injuries and their impact on the child's life vary greatly.

While the risks of New York birth injuries from C-Sections are not insignificant, the greater risks are to the mother who is undergoing major abdominal surgery.

If you, or your child, have been hurt by a doctor's mistake in ordering your C-Section, performing your C-Section, or monitoring you after your C-Section, then you may be entitled to legal damages. Please contact an experienced New York birth injury lawyer today at 1-800-PAGAN-911 and schedule a free consultation to discuss your family's situation and how a New York birth injury attorney may be able to help you recover the damages that you need and that you deserve.
