Eclampsia & Preeclampsia Malpractice Lawyer
Our Attorneys Are Here to Assist If You or Your Child Has Suffered Due to an Eclampsia and Preeclampsia Birth Injury
Preeclampsia and eclampsia are serious medical conditions that can manifest during pregnancy. Failure to identify the signs that these conditions are present can cause injury or loss of life to the mother or her baby, or both. Close observation and examination can ensure that these conditions are identified.
Although doctors are educated to look for signs that these conditions are present, sadly due to a lack of observation, the symptoms are often not identified in time. Our attorneys are dedicated to fight on behalf of those individuals and families who have suffered an injury or loss from eclampsia and preeclampsia.

What Happens If Eclampsia and Preeclampsia Occur
If the mother has certain traits during pregnancy, she may be at a higher risk of developing preeclampsia. Some examples of risk factors include; if the mother is older than average, she is overweight or she has diabetes. No one factor causes preeclampsia and the only remedy is for the mother to deliver the baby. Unfortunately, if the signs of preeclampsia are not identified and dealt with swiftly, it can then mature into eclampsia. Eclampsia can result in the mother experiencing seizures and further advance to abruptio placenta, cerebral palsy and other serious conditions. Some signs of preeclampsia are:
- The presence of protein in the urine
- An elevation in blood pressure
- A surprise gain in weight
- Serious headaches
- Queasiness and throwing up
