Can You Sue for Placental Abruption? Yes, And We Can Help!
The baby receives oxygen as well as nutrients through an organ that is attached to the uterine wall known as the placenta. It is a vital part of the baby’s survival, and without it, the development of the baby simply would not happen. The placenta is firmly affixed to the uterine wall, and it is pretty much next to impossible for it to detach unless there was some form of physical trauma that causes it to do so. In such instances, doctors are required to act fast to save both the baby’s and mother’s lives. This event is known as placental abruption, and it usually occurs due to some form of negligence. If you suffered placental abruption which led to your child developing health complications, you have every right to file a lawsuit to recover money damages as well as seek justice for you, your baby and your loved ones.

Doctor’s Role in Preventing Placental Abruption
It is vital that doctors monitor women at risk of fetal abruption as well as act in a timely manner in order to mitigate any complications.

Placental Abruption Consequences
Placental abruption often leads to stillbirth and in some cases, the death of the mother. In addition, the mother may hemorrhage and lose a lot of blood, leading to asphyxia in the baby due to lack of oxygen, which consequently causes brain damage, leading to conditions such as cerebral palsy and intellectual disability.
