Pittsburgh VBAC Injury Attorney PA & OH
Birth Injury and VBAC Attorneys – Working for Mother and Child
A VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean) is a procedure that many doctors and OB/GYNs refuse to perform. The reason for this is that a C-Section turns a later vaginal birth into a high-risk procedure in which both the unborn child and the mother face the possibility of serious complications, permanent injury or even death.
At the Pennsylvania Dallas W. Hartman, P.C., in New Castle, Hermitage, Butler and Erie our attorneys represent mothers, children and families in medical malpractice litigation for all birth injuries. We offer experienced lawyers who have a proven record of success handling complex cases, and an unwavering commitment to supporting the needs of our clients.
A Dangerous Procedure That Can Harm Mother and Child
Performing a VBAC requires close and constant attention, careful fetal monitoring and flawless attention from doctors and nurses. With the possibility of a uterine rupture or a hypoxic injury (lack of oxygen to the brain) for the infant, any malpractice on the part of doctors or nurses can have devastating, permanent consequences.
An improperly handled birth after a C-Section, whether as a result of failure to monitor mother and infant vitals or failing to recognize serious distress, can result in:
- Brain injury
- Cerebral palsy
- Ruptured uterus
- Excessive bleeding
- Wrongful death
The dangers of VBAC are well known, and a doctor has a duty to make sure the patient is fully informed and gives informed consent before undergoing the procedure. Even if doctors and nurses acted properly throughout birth and delivery, if you did not understand the risks involved in having a vaginal birth after a C-Section, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries or the harm to your baby.
