Can I make a compensation claim?

A caesarean section claim can be made when injury is suffered as a result of substandard medical care.

A cesarean section, sometimes called a C-section, is an operation to deliver a baby through a cut made in the mother’s abdomen and womb. It is a major operation, but it is common in the UK, with around 1 in 4 mothers giving birth this way.

These are risky operations and errors, mistakes and accidents can occur during the procedure.

Mothers who have undergone C-sections are at a greater risk of incisional hernias and adhesions. All surgery performed on 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
  • delay

Claiming compensation

When a caesarean section goes wrong our caring and compassionate medical negligence lawyers are here to help you. The team is led by specialist lawyer Oliver Thorne who campaigns for the rights of families affected by substandard neonatal care. He is supported by solicitor Caroline Webber-Brown whose work in the area of childbirth and gynaecological negligence has been recognised by the independent publication, the Legal 500.

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.
