Uterine Ruptures

Uterine rupture is a potentially devastating complication that almost always occurs during labor and delivery. Although the consequences of uterine rupture may be severe and life-threatening to both the mother and the child, the initial symptoms — including abdominal pain, bleeding during childbirth and changes in fetal heart monitor tracing — can be subtle and easily confused with less serious conditions.

In order to provide the appropriate standard of care during delivery, doctors must follow the rules of differential diagnosis, a process which rules out most serious conditions. If a doctor ignores symptoms or risk factors such as prior C-section, other uterine surgery, potential uterine hyperstimulation from excessive or inappropriate use of pitocin, and a uterine rupture causes harm to mother or child, medical malpractice may have occurred.

If you or a loved one suffered due to the negligent treatment of uterine rupture or another catastrophic event during childbirth, it is in your best interest to discuss your case with an experienced medical malpractice and birth injury attorney. You deserve honest answers and sound legal guidance.
