C-Section Bladder Injuries in NYC
You Need a New York City Caesarean Section Malpractice Attorney
In childbirth, there can be conditions which require that an infant be
surgically removed to ensure the health and safety of the child and the
mother. A caesarean section surgery (commonly known as a C-section) is
major surgery which can have health risks to both mother and child. If
a C-section is performed negligently by the obstetrician, which can be
serious long-term health consequences to mother and child.
If you suffered an injury in a botched C-section, you should
speak with a NYC medical malpractice lawyer to determine your rights.
What is a C-Section?
A C-section is a procedure that is performed to surgically remove an infant.
Most C-sections are emergency surgery because there is difficulty delivering
the child vaginally, but in recent years more children are born via elective
C-section surgery. In a C-section, doctors make an incision in the abdomen
of the mother and remove the child from the uterus.
The complications from a C-section surgery vary, and the decision to execute
a C-section must be made in a timely fashion. If you or your child were
injured because of negligence during a C-section, you may be eligible
for compensation for pain and suffering.
Bladder Injuries Resulting From a C-Section
When a C-section incision is made, there are many other internal organs
that are located near the womb that are in danger of being injured during
the surgery. The primary types of negligent C-section injuries are bladder injuries.
Bladder injuries during a Caesarean section are caused by an erroneous
incision into the bladder. This may occur because the bladder is located in an abnormal location due
to the position of the fetus, or it could be the result of obstetric negligence
if the physician fails to properly locate the bladder before making an incision.
The mother can experience serious complications from a C-section bladder
injury, including infection, sepsis, and internal bleeding. Some victims
of bladder injuries require additional surgery to correct the
medical error. If you experienced a bladder injury from a C-section, you should speak with a
birth injury lawyer as soon as possible.
Other Risk Associated with C-Section Procedures
C-sections can also pose a serious health risk to the mother of a child
if they are not executed properly. A C-section is a major surgical procedure,
and should be carried out with care and caution by the obstetricians.
Like all abdominal surgeries, there is a risk of hernias and infection
at the incision site. C-sections also place a mother at risk for blood
loss and anesthesia risks. If you have been injured because your C-section
surgery was performed in a negligent manner, you should speak with an
NYC medical malpractice lawyer about filing a lawsuit.
