Unfortunately, there is a wide array of complications that may arise during a C-section procedure. Just some of those complications and errors are as follows:

How do I know if I have a valid claim against a physician?
To have a valid claim against a surgeon or any other type of physician, you will have to prove several things. They are as follows:
- The physician was treating you and, therefore, owed you a duty of care.
- The physician acted in a way that fell below the medical standard of care.
- You were harmed as a result of the physician’s actions (or inactions)
- You incurred damages as a result
