Throughout the course of a pregnancy, frequent testing and supervision should be conducted. Many types of prenatal complications exhibit symptoms. In some cases, symptoms of complications or diseases are similar to typical pregnancy side effects. Neglect or failure to investigate symptoms can result in life-threatening complications for you and your child.
Major complications include:
Misdiagnosis can have fatal consequences. Often, there is a window of treatment for complications that arise. When a disease or illness becomes advanced, it may be difficult to cure. Diagnosis errors by the physician can cause patients to lose the opportunity to receive effective treatment and cause harm on your pregnancy.
Childbirth injuries can often result from negligent care from a physician. Failure to properly monitor fetal vital signs can result in avoidable complications or death. Brain and nerve damage can occur from incompetent forceps or vacuum extractor use.
Misdiagnosis in medications can create disastrous results for you and your baby. In addition, this can result in serious complications. Medication errors can also occur if a nurse or assistant gives patients incorrect dosages. Faulty or malfunctioning equipment such as a defibrillator or intravenous pump also cause medication errors.
If you have been treated with negligent care during your pregnancy, you may have experienced pain and suffering for not only you, but for your child. Seek proper compensation from Parvey & Frankel to take back the life your child deserves.
