Planning and preparing for a new baby is an exciting time for a mother and a father; however, while a mother is still carrying a baby inside of her, the health of the mother is a top priority. While mothers-to-be in Pennsylvania and other sates across the nation have access to some of the best medical care in the world, human error and negligence could enter the labor and delivery room. Such a situation could cause harm to both the mother and the baby.
Although high-risk pregnancies present potential harms, injuries and even defects to a mother or infant, if an OB/GYN fails to take proper measures to address these high-risk situations, this could be considered negligent. OB/GYN negligence could be the cause of serious pregnancy-related injuries, and at Rosen Louik & Perry, our legal team is devoted to aiding parents who have suffered injuries and long-term consequences due to medical negligence.
For many first-time mothers, there is an endless list of questions and concerns. A doctor might disregard this, deeming the woman paranoid and over-reacting. However, doing so could cause the doctor to miss a serious issue with the pregnancy. Whether a woman is in the beginning, middle or end of her pregnancy, issues could present themselves at any point. And if a medical professional failed to perform the proper tests or treatment for a pregnant mother, this could be used as evidence to hold a medical professional liable.
Our experienced attorneys have the skills and resources required to collect the necessary evidence in a medical malpractice suit. We understand the importance of gathering medical records and expert testimony to prove the negligence of a medical professional.
