Injuries to the Mother

When Medical Malpractice Harms Mothers

Having a child should be a joyful occasion. But when physicians, nurses, and medical professionals commit medical malpractice before, during, or after childbirth, mothers can suffer serious and even fatal injuries.

If your joyful day was marred by pain or tragedy, you could have the right to take action against those responsible. Proudly standing up for the victims and families hurt by medical malpractice, the attorneys of Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA have the experience and resources necessary to hold negligent hospitals and doctors liable for the injuries they cause.

Contact our maternal injury lawyers immediately if you or your loved one suffered injury relating to childbirth, including:

  • Caesarian Section Complications
  • Pre-Eclampsia
  • Anesthesia and Epidural Injuries
  • Infection
  • Uterine Rupture
  • Cardiac Arrest
  • Pulmonary Embolisms
  • Nerve Damage

While all pregnancies entail a certain amount of risk, medical malpractice in the delivery room dramatically increases the likelihood of maternal injuries, complications, and wrongful death.  These preventable risks and injuries must not go unaddressed.

Cause for Concern

Maternal injuries can vary greatly by type and severity. Major complications, such as cardiac arrest and pulmonary embolism, warrant immediately contacting an experienced birth injury attorney. Other, less severe complications, such as tears, fissures, and related chronic pain, may not at first appear serious. However, even relatively minor injuries can result in long-term impairments or develop into severe conditions.

Following childbirth, mothers are encouraged to consult a medical or legal expert whenever excessive, unexpected, or unexplainable pain occurs. Great or small, injuries sustained as the result of medical malpractice may entitle you and your family to compensation.

If you or your loved one suffered maternal injuries before, during, or following childbirth and you believe malpractice is to blame, call or email Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA now for a free consultation regarding your rights and claims.
