Columbus Ohio Preeclampsia Lawyer

Thousands of mothers and babies die or suffer serious injury every year due to preeclampsia. Preeclampsia injuries sometimes result from medical malpractice. The Ohio birth injury lawyers at Clark, Perdue & List are skilled and experienced in holding medical professionals accountable for failing to properly diagnose or treat preeclampsia.

Preeclampsia is a condition that occurs during pregnancy and the postpartum period. This disorder is characterized by high blood pressure and abnormally high amounts of protein in the urine of a pregnant woman, typically after the 20th week of pregnancy. If preeclampsia is left untreated, the condition can become life-threatening to the mother and baby, potentially resulting in seizures, stroke, organ failure, or death.

When a pregnant woman shows symptoms of preeclampsia, the physicians and medical professionals have a duty to detect the problem, closely monitor the mother, and if possible, deliver the baby. If medical professionals recognize the symptoms of preeclampsia, and do not deliver the baby in a timely manner, those medical professionals may be liable for any injuries that are suffered by the mother and/or baby as a result. Further, if the medical professionals fail to monitor the mother appropriately, and fail to detect the signs and symptoms of preeclampsia, they may be held liable for any injuries that result.

The Ohio personal injury lawyers at Clark, Perdue & List are experienced in helping families who have fallen victim to medical malpractice. We understand the difficulties associated with caring for an injured child and trauma of realizing that a doctor made an error. We help families cope with the complex legal and financial issues that result from birth injuries, and we have a proven track record of achieving compensation for families who have suffered personal injury as a result of negligence during pregnancy and birth.
