Did You Suffer from Placental Abruption?

Boca Raton Placental Abruption Attorney

Know Your Legal Options After Birth Injuries Occur

Placental abruption is when a placenta is removed from the wall of the uterus, which can harm both mother and child. Placental abruption can be treated if the mother is familiar with the warning signs and quickly visits the doctor for a diagnosis. If a medical professional fails to treat or diagnose the condition, or neglects to make the mother aware of the warning signs of pregnancy complications, they could be held liable for medical malpractice.

Your family should not have had to suffer from a doctor’s mistakes. If either the mother or child was injured from placental abruption, you should explore your legal options with a knowledgeable Boca Raton birth injury lawyer.

You can discuss your case free of charge by calling (561) 221-6802 and scheduling a case evaluation.

We Can Help You Determine Liability

Placental abruption is not caused by mistakes, in fact, the exact event that triggers it is unknown. There are, however, several risk factors that can be monitored so patients and medical staff can respond quickly should the injury occur. Your care provider has a duty to warn you of signs and symptoms of placental abruption so that you can take the necessary precautions to prevent it.

If you suffered placental abruption, did your doctor make you aware that:

  • Vaginal bleeding should be examined by a doctor immediately?
  • Back pain could be a symptom of placental abruption?
  • High blood pressure increases your risk?
  • Having twins, triplets, or any multiple pregnancies increases your risk?
  • The fetus is connected to a short umbilical cord and could be at greater risk?
  • Injuries or jolts sustained by the mother could result in placental abruption?

Depending on your medical history and circumstances, there are several factors a physician could make you aware of to prevent damage from placental abruption. A knowledgeable attorney can help you determine whether or not your medical professional is at fault.
