At the Chicago office of Morrissey Legal Group, LLC, you can rely on the legal services of a medical malpractice attorney who is dedicated to your best interests. Attorney Frank Morrissey knows how to fight for fair compensation in birth injury cases as well as other critical matters. You can rely on him to seek out a result that covers the short-term and long-term consequences of delayed C-section injuries.
What is considered negligent during a C-Section?
There are many avoidable causes of delayed C-section injuries that may qualify for a malpractice claim, including unnecessary waiting for an operation room, delaying the surgery because of another complication, or the doctor attempting to induce delivery by other means and pushes the surgery back.
No matter what may have caused the delay, a child can suffer consequences such as:
- Cerebral palsy
- Brain damage
- Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy
In addition to the potential injuries a child can experience, mothers can suffer from excessive bleeding, blood clots, organ damage, uterine ruptures or fatal injuries. Attorney Morrissey’s goal is to minimize the time it takes to resolve your claim while maximizing the settlement you earn from it, and he is prepared to do everything he can to help you through your entire medical malpractice claim.
Compassionate Representation For Your And Your Child
No parent wants to hear that a doctor’s mistake has caused their child irreparable harm. The parents of the child should not have to be the one who pays the price of the liable party’s actions.
