Attorneys Working to Reduce Prenatal Care Errors in Ohio
It is the responsibility of primary care physicians and OB/GYN professionals to monitor and evaluate the well-being of both mother and fetus during pregnancy. When serious errors or negligence occurs in prenatal care, the consequences can be devastating.
Common prenatal care errors include:
- Failure to diagnose and treat maternal hypertension (high blood pressure)
- Failure to diagnose and treat gestational diabetes
- Failure to conduct regular fetal ultrasounds in order to keep track of fetal size and weight (important information in order to prevent shoulder dystocia or other complications that may affect large babies)
- Failure to recognize the symptoms of a serious condition such as placental abruption, preeclampsia or premature rupture of membranes
While not all prenatal care errors constitute medical malpractice, if you were harmed or your child suffered a birth injury due to faulty or negligent prenatal care, you may benefit by discussing your situation with an experienced lawyer who can help answer your questions and help you understand your rights and options.
