Complications From Eclampsia Or Preeclampsia

What is Eclampsia? What is Pre-eclampsia?

Both are dangerous conditions that an ob/gyn always needs to be prepared to handle. Eclampsia is one or more convulsions (seizures) in women who have pre-eclampsia. Pre-eclampsia is a pregnancy-related complication generally identified by high blood-pressure. A recent study in the American Journal of Perinatology suggested that the US incidence of preeclampsia has dramatically increased in the last two decades, and is one of the top six causes of maternal mortality in the U.S.

Ob/gyns are the medical professionals trained and prepared to respond to such increasing complications during pregnancy. But what happens when an ob/gyn or the nursing staff fails to properly respond after you or a loved one develops pre-eclampsia or eclampsia?

What Kinds Of Complications Did You Suffer?

High blood pressure during the second half of pregnancy can be extremely dangerous for both the baby and mom. The only recognized treatment to eclampsia currently is early delivery, which can be harmful to both the baby and mom. Eclampsia can have other side effects, and may also result in organ damage, uncontrollable bleeding during delivery, or even the placenta being separated from the wall of the uterus.

If you believe you developed any of these symptoms during pregnancy and/or delivery, and you suffered harm as a result, we can help you hold the appropriate individual accountable. Our firm has handled many cases of negligence that caused birth injuries and can get you the recovery you deserve.
