The Cesarean Section procedure, generally called a C-section, has been performed for thousands of years, but never at the rate at which it is used today. Originally performed in an attempt to save the baby when the mother was dying, it is now most often performed on women who have had a previous C-section, when the mother has health problems, when the baby is in the wrong position, when the delivery has become difficult or has stopped or slowed down, or when the baby or mother is showing signs of distress. More than ever before, women are choosing to deliver their children through a C-section. Altogether, it is estimated that approximately 30 percent of all deliveries in the United States are now Cesareans.
Unfortunately, modern C-section techniques and technology do not always equate with greater safety. As experienced C-section error attorneys at the Franklin Law Group in Louisville, we are called upon to help women who have been injured — or whose infants have been harmed — by C-section errors. Attorney Larry Franklin brings his vast birth injury and medical malpractice experience to developing a case for your claim and helping you get fair and just compensation.
If you or your baby has been injured because of a C-section error, who will pay for your medical bills, lost wages and the pain and suffering associated with the physical and psychological trauma? At the Franklin Law Group, our trial-tested lawyers know how to protect your best interests. Obstetricians, surgeons, labor and delivery nurses — medical professionals and the hospitals in which they work — are responsible for ensuring the accepted standard of medical care is followed. When a delayed C-section, failure to perform a C-section or carelessness in the performance of a C-section causes harm, these medical personnel must be held ethically, professionally and financially responsible.
As your C-section error attorneys, we are vigorous in working to get you a settlement that takes into account all your present and future medical needs and covers your lost wages. If there was an egregious violation of the standard of care, you may also be able to sue for punitive damages.
While we strive to reach a fair and just settlement, we are skilled litigators who do not shy away from taking your case to court, if that is in your best interest.
Put experience on your side. To schedule your free initial consultation, contact us online or call us at 502.637.6000. All C-section error cases are taken on contingency — you owe us nothing unless we settle your case or win at trial.
