The National Preeclampsia Foundation reports that thousands of women and newborns become extremely ill or die every year from a dangerous, yet treatable medical condition called preeclampsia. Preeclampsia is a life-threatening illness symptomized by a spike in blood pressure that often results in a stroke and multiple organ failure in mother and fetus.
Anytime after the 20th week of pregnancy, OB/GYNs must be aware of the conditions in the mother’s health that can lead to preeclampsia. If you or your baby suffered the injurious effects of preeclampsia while under the care of a medical professional in Oregon or southwestern Washington, you may have a claim of medical negligence. The responsible parties may include your OB/GYN, your delivery room physician or medical staff responsible for your care during the pre-natal and post-natal period. An experienced medical malpractice attorney at Miller & Wagner, is ready to give you straight answers about your circumstances and your legal options.
