Failure To Address Cephalopelvic Disproportion

Cephalopelvic disproportion is when the mother's pelvis is simply not big enough for the fetus to fit through during a vaginal birth. This condition can arise for a variety of factors: The mother's pelvis may naturally be small. It may also be constricted because of a medical condition such as a past pelvic fracture. The condition may also be the result of a large fetus.

With proper monitoring and measuring, this condition should be recognized. In most cases, the appropriate resolution is to conduct a C-section in lieu of a vaginal birth. At the Law Offices of Raymond J. Slomski, P.C., in Phoenix, our lawyers take action against medical professionals who fail to recognize CPD and birth injuries result.

Failure To Perform A Cesarean Section

We have spent decades holding negligent medical professionals accountable, work that we believe keeps the community safe and allows victims to obtain compensation. We have seen cases in which doctors have failed to perform C-sections, instead attempting to use vacuum extraction or other methods to make a vaginal birth work even though cephalopelvic disproportion prevents the fetus from fitting through the birth canal.

Doctors forcing vaginal births instead of performing C-sections can lead to serious birth injuries, including brain damage, shoulder dystocia and more. If you believe your child was injured because of failure to perform a cesarean section, we can help.
