Delay in performing an emergency caesarean or c-section can be catastrophic to both mother and baby.

A caesarean section can be a very risky operation. Mothers who have undergone c-sections are at a greater risk of incisional hernias and adhesions. All surgery performed to the abdomen therefore needs to be approached with care to avoid injuries to the abdominal organs. Other errors involving caesarean sections include:

  • surgical mistakes resulting in nerve damage
  • infections
  • scarring

When a caesarean section goes wrong our caring and compassionate medical negligence lawyers are here to help.

Any victim of medical negligence is entitled to recover compensation for their injuries together with a further sum for the financial losses they have incurred. This could include the cost of private medical treatment or the cost of cosmetic surgery to resolve scarring.

We are usually able to work on a No Win – No Fee basis, so worries about how to fund your legal case should not put you off seeking justice.

To make a caesarean section claim call our Birth Injury Helpline for a FREE assessment.

We will review you case and tell you what your prospects are of making a successful caesarean section claim.
