Dedicated and Compassionate South Carolina Cesarean Section Lawyers
During childbirth, parents are not immediately aware of any problems with their child. They are placing complete trust in the medical professionals providing care for them. Their job is to ensure the health of the mother and child while attending to every detail. Decisions must be made quickly without the slightest error.
At Furr & Henshaw, we know what is at stake when a child suffers injuries or death because his or her "trusted" ob-gyn failed to perform a timely C-section. We combine compassion, skill and resources to hold medical professionals accountable and maximize compensation for birth injury victims. With the help of medical experts, we identify the merit of the claim and move forward with a suit against the responsible parties.
Complex Law Combines With Emotional Elements in Birth Trauma Claims
During labor, a baby's heart rate must be monitored regularly. An electronic fetal heart rate monitor shows the pattern of the heart rate and must be checked. A change in heart rate during contractions is a sign that the baby is lacking oxygen.
Something as simple as the baby resting on the umbilical cord can be resolved. However, more serious problems could be a cord around the baby's neck or trapped between the baby and the pelvis of the mother. Combined with drugs to speed up delivery increases the force and frequency of contractions.
Doctors and nurses must take immediate action in the form of a C-section. They have a newborn's life in their hands and must be swift and decisive in changing course. Failure to take that step could lead to perinatal birth injuries, including cerebral palsy.
