Undiagnosed pregnancy complications are troublesome

Most pregnant women have only one focus when it comes to their pregnancy -- they want to bring a healthy child into the world. There are some instances in which pregnancy complications make that difficult. For those women, having a doctor who can properly diagnose the pregnancy complications is one step closer toward having a healthy child.

In our previous blog post, we discussed how an incompetent cervix can lead to issues. If you recall, this is a condition that can be treated when it is diagnosed properly. When it isn't diagnosed, there is a chance the cervix could dilate too early in the pregnancy and the baby wouldn't survive birth. This would be a heartbreaking outcome of the pregnancy, especially if there is a chance that treatment could have prevented the fetal demise.

No parent wants to think that he or she lost a child because of a doctor's negligence. When that does happen, the parents can take action against the doctor to hold him or her accountable for the loss. That won't bring the baby back or take away the effects on the mother; however, it does send a stark message that proper care during pregnancy is crucial.

We know that you might not know where to start. Your emotions might be raw if the doctor's negligence did cause you to lose your baby. We are here to help you learn about the process for seeking compensation so that you can decide if this is something you want to do. If you opt to seek compensation, we will help you every step of the way.
