St. Louis Attorneys Representing Mothers And Children Affected By Preeclampsia During Pregnancy
Preeclampsia and eclampsia are conditions that most frequently occur late in pregnancy — typically after the 20-week point. Preeclampsia involves high blood pressure in pregnant women. The condition can develop even if the mother has no personal or family history of high blood pressure.
Undiagnosed preeclampsia can result in premature births that may lead to a variety of serious health conditions that could impair your child for life. If undiagnosed preeclampsia is allowed to advance to eclampsia, it could cause the mother to suffer severe seizures, fall into a coma or, in the most extreme cases, result in the death of the mother and/or the child.
If you or your child has suffered any type of negative impact due to the effects of undiagnosed or improperly treated preeclampsia, you may have grounds to seek compensation in a medical malpractice claim. These are complex cases, and having an experienced attorney on your side can help to ensure that your interests are fully protected.
