Delayed C-Section Lawyers Portland, OR
We leave no stone unturned in
pursuit of justice for your family
Cesarean section is a medical procedure that could potentially save the life of either mother or baby. Here in Oregon, the overall Cesarean rate is 23% and this procedure is generally considered safe. Unfortunately, when a C-section is unnecessarily delayed, it can cause lasting injury or even death.
In any situation where a reasonably competent doctor would have ordered a C-section and did not, the doctor may have committed medical malpractice. When this occurs, it’s important to contact a qualified medical malpractice attorney. A successful lawsuit can result in a settlement or verdict that can cover the costs of future medical care, lost wages, loss of earning potential, as well as the intangible costs of the injury. An unreasonable delay in ordering a C-section can have devastating and permanent effects on the unborn child.

Why would a doctor delay a necessary C-section?
There are many reasons why a doctor might fail to order a Cesarean section:
- The doctor misses symptoms of health problems in the mother or baby
- The doctor doesn’t properly monitor the baby or mother for signs of distress
- The doctor fails to detect warning signs of distress
- The hospital is understaffed
