The most common surgery performed in hospitals in the United States is not on the heart or back or hips or knees. It is a caesarean section. Approximately 1 of every 3 infants born in the country are delivered by c-section each year, which is about 1.3 million babies.
In 2013, the rate of caesarean section births in the US was 32.7%, which is well above the 10% to 15% that the World Health Organization says is the "medically necessary" target.
A cesarean section is a surgical procedure where the doctor makes an incision in the mother's abdomen and uterus to help deliver her child. It is normally performed when there is a risk in the safety of the mother or baby. Although C-sections are routine, there are times when complications do occur. Most doctors have the knowledge and skill to deal with these complications, but there are times when the mother or child is put under unnecessary harm.
Injuries to the Baby
During the delivery, cesarean section complications may cause distress to the baby or mother. When such an incident arises, the doctor and hospital staff must be ready to act quickly. If proper medical protocol is not followed, it may result in a serious birth injury to the baby.
Common child birth injuries include:
Parents can file a legal action against the doctor for causing c-section complications and birth injuries. An experienced medical malpractice attorney can help them get compensation for medical costs, pain and suffering, emotional distress and other damages.
