Failure to perform a timely C-section
Medical guidelines state that a C-section should not be performed more than thirty minutes after the decision has been made to perform one. The failure to make a Cesarean delivery in a timely manner can result in serious brain damage to the baby.
There are some circumstances a doctor can change the baby’s position or opt for an emergency Caesarean section. When these options are not taken, and a baby suffers injuries, this could lead to the filing of a New Jersey birth injury claim.
If your baby has suffered brain damage and you believe it was caused by a doctor’s delay in performing a C-section, contact the Law Offices of Ronald W. Sage PA today to learn your options.
