Helping Victims Of Malpractice During Pregnancy
Expectant mothers require constant care during pregnancy. While most pregnancies result in the birth of a healthy child, the health of the mother and child should not be taken for granted. Medical professionals must be diligent in their efforts to minimize complications during pregnancy and to address them in a timely manner when they arise.
When complications during pregnancy go undetected, it can result in extremely serious medical issues that have the potential to jeopardize the pregnancy, the health of the baby and the health of the mother. The most severe complications can lead to lifelong health complications, and some may be fatal. If you or your child is suffering because of an error that was made during pregnancy, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice claim.
