When The Ob-Gyn Makes A Serious Mistake
Both mother and child can develop serious medical conditions during pregnancy. It is the job of your OB-GYN to monitor the health of both you and your child and do everything possible to protect your health. If you or your child has suffered a serious injury during pregnancy, it may be the result of malpractice.
At Jacobs & Dow, LLC, our New Haven pregnancy malpractice lawyers protect the rights of mothers who have been injured during pregnancy. With more than 60 years of experience protecting the victims of medical malpractice, we recognize medical negligence, and we know how to make sure offending doctors are held responsible so our clients get the compensation they deserve.
Pre-Eclampsia And Other Dangerous Pregnancy Injuries
There are many complications that can impact both mother and child during pregnancy, but pre-eclampsia is the most common. Every OB-GYN is aware of the dangers of preeclampsia and must be on the lookout for possible symptoms, such as elevated blood pressure. If a mother develops preeclampsia, it can lead to strokes, seizures and even death.
While mothers develop preeclampsia during pregnancy, the impact of the condition can even occur weeks after childbirth. If you have suffered an unexpected stroke or seizure during or shortly after your pregnancy, it may be the result of preeclampsia. Our attorneys will conduct a thorough investigation into what went wrong in your pregnancy and whether your doctor had adequate warning signs to take action and protect you.
At Jacobs & Dow, LLC, we handle all medical malpractice claims on a contingency basis; there are no legal fees for you and your family until we get you the compensation you deserve. We have the resources and financial means to develop your case and protect your rights on our own.
