Connecticut Medical Malpractice: 3 In 5 Pregnancy-Related Deaths Are Preventable
According to new research from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), 60% of pregnancy-related deaths are preventable. Pregnancy-related deaths can happen up to one year after a woman gives birth. Connecticut medical malpractice occurs when an obstetrician fails to refer a patient to a specialist, improperly monitors a condition, or makes a medical error during delivery.
The research shows that of the 700 pregnancy-related deaths that occur annually, 36% of them happen during delivery, 34% occur due to stroke and heart attack, 31% take place during pregnancy, and the remainder are due to bleeding and infection.
If disability or death followed delivery, your loved one’s or your medical records should be examined. A Connecticut medical malpractice case is complex.
