Vaginal Birth After Caesarean (VBAC)

You can count on our Chicago, IL birth injury attorneys

One of the most common reasons why some children are born with birth injuries involves mothers who give birth vaginally after previously delivering a child through a caesarean section, a surgical procedure commonly known as a C-section. This is known as vaginal birth after caesarean (VBAC).

While VBAC is a viable option for many mothers, there are significant risks associated with it as well. That’s why it’s critical that doctors warn women about the potential dangers and carefully monitor their health throughout their pregnancy. Unfortunately, doctors often fail to inform mothers of the risks to their baby due to a VBAC delivery.

Knowing what to do in such situations can be confusing. Even knowing what your rights are as an injury victim or family member might not be clear. That’s why it’s important to talk with an experienced birth injury attorney familiar with all the legal issues involving VBAC injuries. That’s why we want to meet with you at Goldberg & Schulkin Law Offices. Our lawyers can explain all your available legal options and which one makes the most sense for you.

Common risk factors and birth injuries

Doctors need to closely monitor a woman’s health during her pregnancy for any warning signs of health problems due to VBAC. Risks women face when attempting to give birth vaginally after previously having a C-section include:

Newborn children also face a high risk of infections and brain damage due to VBAC. Whatever medical issues you’re dealing with, no matter how straightforward or complicated they might seem, we want to help you get your life back on track.

You might think you don’t need a lawyer if you or your child was harmed due to the reckless or negligent behavior of medical professionals. But the problem is most doctors, nurses and other health care professionals are reluctant to admit they did anything wrong. That’s because the financial stakes are often so high. Your baby’s injury could cost them thousands or millions of dollars.

But you shouldn’t have to pay for their mistakes. You deserve to be compensated for your medical bills, lost income and any other accident-related expenses. That’s why we want to meet with you. We can work with you to create a unique strategy that addresses your specific legal needs.
