Thousands of pregnant women and their babies get very sick or die from a dangerous medical condition called pre-eclampsia. Pre-eclampsia occurs in every 1 out of 20 pregnancies.
Pre eclampsia usually happens during the third trimester of pregnancy and is characterized by an increase in the mother’s blood pressure and excess protein in her urine. Other symptoms can include severe headache, changes in vision, stomach pain, nausea, sudden weight gain and dizziness.
The only cure for pre-eclampsia is prompt delivery of your child because left untreated, pre eclampsia can lead to serious complications for mother and her baby including brain injury, coma, cerebral palsy and death. Unfortunately medical providers sometimes fail to timely treat pre-eclampsia causing severe injuries to mother and child.
At Hodes Milman, we represent mothers and their children who have been injured from delayed diagnosis or untreated pre-eclampsia.
