Postpartum Medical Negligence Attorney in Cleveland

Seeking Justice and Compensation for Mothers Harmed by Doctor Negligence After Childbirth

A postpartum injury, as the name suggests, is one that occurs after childbirth and can impact the baby and mother. After delivery, both mother and child are in a very vulnerable state, and negligence on the part of the doctor, delivery nurses, and/or medical team could result in serious, life-threatening injuries. If you were impacted by a postpartum medical condition because of a doctor or medical professional’s negligence, you have legal recourse to seek justice and financial compensation.

What Is Postpartum Negligence?

Common examples of postpartum medical negligence include:

  • Medication errors: The doctor may administer the wrong dose of medicine, give the wrong medication, or administer a medication to which the patient is allergic.
  • Failure to treat an existing condition in mother or infant: Babies may be born with jaundice, which requires specific incubation lights to treat. This includes anesthesia mistakes after birth.
  • Failure to recognize a mother’s or infant’s distress: This may include a sudden illness, which could involve the mother’s placenta not being removed completely, which can lead to life-threatening sepsis (serious infection). Other examples are uterine rupture, postpartum hemorrhage, or eclampsia.
  • Monitoring vital signs: If the mother or baby is in distress, such as having dangerously low or high blood pressure that medical personnel failed to address, you may have reason to file a postpartum negligence claim.
  • Wound care: Common examples of negligent wound care include improper/insufficient attention to how a patient heals after a C-section, as well as improper care/attention when a woman tears her labia minora (the inner lips of the vagina) while giving birth, allowing it to become infected.
  • Neonatal care for the newborn: A newborn must be carefully monitored in his/her first hours of life, and throughout the duration of their stay at the hospital.
