What is a caesarean section?

A caesarean 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.

Delay in performing an emergency caesarean or c-section can be catastrophic for 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

Claiming compensation

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.
