Obtaining regular and proper medical care during the time leading up to your pregnancy is crucial to keep you and your growing baby healthy and avoid premature delivery. But after 9 months of knowledgeable care, there can still be many complications that occur during the labor and delivery process due to negligence on the part of your medical team. If you or your newborn has sustained an injury or physical damage because of poor medical care during your delivery, you no doubt have many questions and serious concerns. Help in addressing those are available from our Las Vegas, Nevada medical malpractice and negligence attorneys.
One of the leading causes of complications during labor and delivery is hypertension or high blood pressure. Failure to treat this condition during pregnancy can be dangerous to both you and your baby, leading to seizures and convulsions, coma, and possible damage to your unborn baby. Complications due to hypertension can become even more severe if not resolved by the time the delivery date approaches. Bleeding disorders and seizures can occur as well as a condition called eclampsia, which is the leading cause of pregnancy-related death among mothers and babies in the world. All of these medical conditions and complications can generally be prevented by proper care from a doctor and health care professionals.
Your pregnancy is a wonderful yet complex process, and negligent care on the part of your obstetrician and his team can lead to a lifetime of problems for you and your child, and even lead to death.
