You May Need An Attorney For A C-Section Gone Wrong

When a woman's life is at risk during birth, physicians must act quickly to determine whether a cesarean section is the best option. Failure to do a timely C-section can cause serious injuries to the mother and/or infant. If your doctor did not make the right decision, you have every right to be angry. Bloomfield cesarean section delivery and birth injury lawyer Alan D. Bell can constructively channel that anger by seeking justice and just compensation.

More than a decade of experience. AV-rated* under Martindale-Hubbell's peer review rating system. Certified civil attorney by the New Jersey Supreme Court. Alan D. Bell's accomplishments run deep, but even deeper is his commitment to helping families find answers for serious birth injuries.

Should Your Doctor Have Performed A C-Section?

There are many dangerous conditions that may require doctors to perform a cesarean section rather than vaginal birth, including:

  • Elevated blood pressure in the mother
  • Fetal distress, such as signs of oxygen deprivation
  • Abnormal lab tests
  • Concerns regarding umbilical cord placement
  • Prolonged labor

Failure to monitor the mother and infant or failure to act promptly when a C-section is necessary can lead to devastating injuries, including cerebral palsy, fractures, brain damage, Erb's palsy, paralysis and even death.

At our law firm, we believe in the virtues of diligent research and hard work. We will thoroughly research your case to find out what happened: What caused your infant's injuries or death?
