Placental Abruption Lawsuits

Cleveland Attorneys Standing Up for Injured Mothers & Newborns

One of the most dangerous yet rare complications of pregnancy is placental abruption, which involves the placenta becoming separated from the developing infant before childbirth. It is estimated that less than 1% of all pregnant mothers will experience placental abruption, but when it does occur, it can be life-threatening for her and her unborn child. In some cases, it can even cause a permanent birth injury, like cerebral palsy.

It is up to medical professionals, especially OB-GYNs, to identify the signs of placental abruption and take action to avoid or remedy it. When missteps are taken by medical providers and a mother or her child are harmed due to placental abruption, it is a birth injury that constitutes medical malpractice, and it should be met with appropriate legal action. The Lancione Law Firm and our attorneys can help you file a placental abruption lawsuit in Cleveland to seek fair and deserved damages.

You may be able to receive compensation for:

  • All related medical costs
  • Further medical care
  • Emotional trauma
  • Pain and suffering
  • Grief if mother or child passes away
  • And more

Symptoms of Placental Abruption

According to medical histories, placental abruption is most likely to occur about 25 weeks into pregnancy. Obstetricians need to pay extra attention to mother’s pregnancy symptoms during this time to look for signs of placental abruption. If it can be diagnosed soon enough, then immediate medical care may be able to prevent the worst dangers and complications.

Symptoms of placental abruption often include:

  • Persistent vaginal bleeding
  • Severe lower abdominal pain
  • Hypotension, or low blood pressure

A medical provider who does not take action after noticing these signs of placental abruption could be found to be medically negligent and accountable for resulting damages. Furthermore, placental abruption is known to be more likely when a pregnant mother uses certain substances, like cocaine or certain painkillers. OB-GYNs must be vigilant in instructing pregnant mothers to discontinue the use of substances that could complicate their pregnancies.
