When Failure To Diagnose Preeclampsia Leads To Child Injuries

Preeclampsia, also known as Toxemia, is a dangerous medical condition that can affect pregnant women. It is defined as high blood pressure and excess protein in the urine in a woman who had normal blood pressure before her pregnancy. If not diagnosed and treated, preeclampsia can lead to severe complications for both mother and child.

Hixson & Brown, P.C., is a medical malpractice firm in West Des Moines dedicated to representing families who have suffered birth injuries such as complications due to preeclampsia. Our lawyers have more than 55 years of combined experience litigating complex medical malpractice cases and fighting for fair compensation for our clients.

Medical Negligence In Treating Preeclampsia

Even a slight increase in blood pressure after 20 weeks of pregnancy may be a sign of preeclampsia, a dangerous medical condition that can lead to:

  • Placental abruption
  • Stroke
  • Severe bleeding
  • Death

Preeclampsia can be cured by delivering your baby. If it is too early to deliver your baby, the condition can be treated by medications and bed rest.

If you or your infant was injured because a doctor failed to diagnose and properly treat your preeclampsia, our lawyers will seek full compensation to help you deal with the medical and other challenges you will face.
