Misdiagnosis Of Medical Conditions During Pregnancy Can Cause Serious Injuries
Midwife (obstetrics) or OB-GYN malpractice can be difficult to prove, so it is important to consult a lawyer who has had success in this area before and has the ability to maximize the value of your case. Negligent prenatal care can lead to costly and possibly lifelong, life-altering injuries for mothers and infants.
Commonly misdiagnosed conditions for which our team can help you obtain compensation include:
- Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM): A form of diabetes developed during pregnancy that, if not properly treated, can complicate birth, as it leads to lack of oxygen to the fetus, potential brain damage and child development issues
- Hypoglycemia: Occurs when a pregnant woman’s blood glucose levels fall, causing the brain to not function normally, which can cause serious complications for mothers and infants during birth
- Neonatal hypoglycemia: Occurs when a newborn’s blood sugar level drops abnormally low, which can lead to brain development complications
- Preeclampsia: Also known as pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH) or toxemia, and can be life-threatening to both mother and infant
- Rh incompatibility and hemolytic anemia complications: Usually a risk during a second pregnancy, and may cause a pregnant woman’s body to deplete her unborn child’s body of the proper level of red blood cells
- HELLP syndrome: A life-threatening complication related to preeclampsia that can occur during the later stages of pregnancy or after childbirth
We handle some of the most complex cases in Ohio with efficient prosecution and persuasive presentations to juries at trial. With our representation, you will be thoroughly informed and guided through every stage of the legal process.
