Pregnancy-related issues can lead to compensation claims

We recently discussed how cervical length can impact pregnancy. If you recall, it is important for doctors to check on the cervical length and take appropriate action if there is any indication that there is a problem. That is only one of the possible complications that doctors who care for pregnant women have to watch for.

We know that you probably wanted to have an uneventful pregnancy. Not being able to enjoy your pregnancy because you are having complications can have a traumatic effect on you and your family. If the complications aren't handled properly or if the doctor did something to cause the complications, you might decide to seek compensation.

Seeking compensation for a pregnancy-related issue can be difficult. We have to work to show that the doctor should have known about the issue and that there should have been a treatment prescribed for the issue. In some cases, we will have to work to show that you weren't properly monitored during your pregnancy.

The many issues that a pregnant woman faces can be almost too much to think about. We know that you might be suffering from emotional trauma because of the issues. While seeking compensation won't take away the emotional trauma, it can help you to learn how to cope with your emotions so that you can continue to live your life.

Whether you were harmed early in your pregnancy, at delivery or anywhere in between, we can help you to learn about the options that you have for seeking compensation. Once you know these options, you can tell us how you would like to proceed.
