Errors and failures with C-Sections

Potential Risks: C-sections are of course like any major operation never without risk to mother or child. From foetal distress, to post operation infections and blood clots, problems can occur. In serious cases these can lead to lifetime medical issues and even in rare cases, death to mother or baby. These issues are sometimes caused by a serious lack of care and medical negligence.

Two categories that this type of negligence often falls into.

  1. Failure to perform a C-Section
  2. Incorrectly performed C-Sections

Some Examples

  • Pre-Natal Indicators: Failure to recognise indications that a C-Section may be required.
  • Botched Surgery: Botched surgery while performing a C-Section leading to injuries like lacerated internal organs, improper wound closures and infections.
  • C-Section Delay: Injury caused by a delayed C-Section.
  • Foetal Distress: Baby injured or deprived of Oxygen from fetal distress.

Can I sue the NHS?

Before making a claim it is worth taking note of the following point.

Check that your medical issues are grounds for negligence, and not a simple complaint procedure. Complaints about procedure dissatisfaction, or seeking an apology / admission for lack of care / treatment should go to PALS. Read more about how to sue a hospital.

When you might have a claim

Injury, continuous pain or loss due to the act of a practitioner or general lack of care at the NHS is an entirely different matter. You might very well have a claim. The duty of care might have been breached meaning the health care professional/s did not provide the expected level of care. If you believe you deserve compensation you may have a medical negligence claim. Read more about how to claim against the NHS here.
