Medical Malpractice Attorney in Texas
Maternal obstetrical complications can take many forms and can complicate post-natal outcome for both mother and baby.
During the prenatal period, maternal conditions such as gestational diabetes, hypertension, cardiac disease, renal disease, or blood clotting abnormalities may require intensive and ongoing management.
Complications such as uterine rupture, cervical laceration, liver injury, and clotting abnormalities require timely recognition and management to prevent permanent injury or death. If there has been an obstetrical complication that has resulted in maternal disability or death, further evaluation of the medical records is recommended.

Failure to properly monitor a mother's blood pressure and other important vital signs can result in dangerous complications such as preeclampsia (Pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH), toxemia) and post-partum hemorrhage. Doctors and nurses who fail to properly monitor a woman's condition and take preventative action can be held financially liable for injuries that occur as a result. At the law office of Hampton & King we consult medical experts who review the actions and decisions of doctors and other staff in cases involving preeclampsia and post-partum hemorrhage.
