Houston Eclampsia & Preeclampsia Lawyer
If You Or Your Baby Has Suffered From Eclampsia And Preeclampsia Birth Injury, Our Attorneys Can Help
Preeclampsia and eclampsia are very severe medical conditions that can occur while a woman is pregnant. If a doctor fails to recognize the symptoms of these conditions, it may result in harm to, or the death of, the woman and her baby. Testing and observation can help identify these problems.
Doctors are trained to watch out for the symptoms associated with these conditions but unfortunately, they are still missed. Our lawyers are ardent advocates of families who suffer birth injury from eclampsia and preeclampsia.

The Consequences of Eclampsia and Preeclampsia
Preeclampsia is a condition that occurs in pregnant women with certain risk factors, such as being older, overweight or having diabetes. There is no specific cause for preeclampsia and the only way to cure it is to give birth to the baby. If the symptoms of preeclampsia are not caught quickly, it can develop into eclampsia, which can cause seizures in the mother and lead to an abruptio placenta, cerebral palsy and other complications.
What are the Common Symptoms of Preeclampsia?
- Protein in the urine
- Elevated blood pressure
- Sudden weight gain
- Severe headache
- Nausea and vomiting
If you, your baby or your spouse has been harmed by a doctor’s negligence in failing to diagnose the symptoms of preeclampsia or eclampsia, you have a right to compensation for your injury or loss. Our Houston based attorneys will hold the doctor accountable for his or her actions by showing where the mistake was made and how the standard of care was deviated from.
The medical establishment goes out of its way to cover up the mistakes its members make on a regular basis. By holding people responsible for this negligence, we not only gain compensation for you, we also change the standards by which doctors, nurses and hospitals operate.
