Maternal Complications

Consult with a Baltimore Birth Injury Lawyer About Your Case

Medical professionals may be held responsible for medical malpractice when they fail to treat, manage, diagnose, or prevent obstetrical problems and maternal health complications. Such negligence may put the newborn and the mother at high risk for developing permanent and dangerous birth injuries. If a medical professional does not properly address and treat maternal medical conditions and the baby is injured in any way, this can be grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit.

It is important to remember that birth injuries don’t only apply to infant injuries; pregnant women and new mothers can also fall victim to negligence and malpractice.

If you suffered maternal complications and you believe a medical professional is at fault, contact a Baltimore birth injury attorney at LawMD right away for a free consultation: (888) 695-2963.

Maternal Complications Commonly Associated with Medical Malpractice

Some of the most common maternal health complications associated with medical malpractice include:

  • Post-term pregnancies
  • Transvaginal mesh problems
  • Maternal infections
  • Preeclampsia
  • Premature rupture of membranes
  • Oligohydramnios, or low fluid in the womb
  • High-risk pregnancy
  • Gestational diabetes

What to Do When You Have Maternal Complications Caused by Medical Malpractice

One of the most critical steps to take after suffering any kind of injury is to get the appropriate medical treatment, but you should not let your management of this problem end here. You may be entitled to compensation in a medical malpractice claim.

All medical professionals have a responsibility to ensure that maternal health problems and medical conditions are monitored throughout the pregnancy and during the labor and delivery process. If a child sustained a permanent and severe birth injury as a result of a doctor’s failure to act or improper actions, or if a mother was injured due to medical negligence, you need to speak with a knowledgeable Baltimore medical malpractice attorney immediately.

Understanding your options for moving forward could be critical for recovering compensation. Given that many severe birth injuries can lead to extensive and costly medical treatments for the child and for the mother, it is vital to get legal help immediately.
