Physicians May Perform C-Sections to Avoid Lawsuits Even When Vaginal Birth Is Possible

The Deseret (UT) News writes a recent NIH report indicates malpractice lawsuit concerns have compelled some physicians to perform more repeat cesarean sections when vaginal delivery may also have been an option. “Obstetricians face more lawsuits and have higher insurance premiums than nearly any other medical specialty, except for neurosurgeons, according to” the report, and may not give expectant mothers the option of a vaginal birth for that reason. The New York Post also asserts withholding that option infringes on the mother’s rights and may put her at risk.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
