Eclampsia & Pre-Eclampsia

ST. PAUL ECLAMPSIA DEATH LAWYERS

When an expectant mother develops a condition such as pre-eclampsia or eclampsia during pregnancy, her obstetrician owes her a duty of care to:

  • Diagnose the condition
  • Monitor changes and prepare to act quickly to prevent complications from spiraling out of control
  • Observe changes in blood pressure or urine protein that may indicate a need for bed rest or, if the delivery due date is not far off, an early induced delivery or cesarean section
  • Administer appropriate treatments during delivery, such as oxygen

Eclampsia or pre-eclampsia does not have to result in a health crisis for the mother and/or the baby. With proper monitoring and treatment, many mothers with one or both conditions have had healthy outcomes: successful delivery, healthy babies and good recovery of post-natal health for the mothers.

A doctor's failure to respond appropriately to changes in a pregnant woman's health can lead to maternal death, birth injury or damage to the mother's organs. If you suspect that mother or baby or both suffered harm because an obstetrician did not treat eclampsia or pre-eclampsia properly, consult with a medical malpractice attorney.

Based in Eagan, MN, Bennerotte & Associates, P.A., has helped many clients who had suffered injury and losses recover compensation to cover medical costs and related losses.
