Connecticut Medical Malpractice: Maternal Complications High In US
Medical complications can occur during the delivery of a new baby, and doctors are prepared to handle such complications. However, sometimes, complications occur that doctors or nurse midwives overlook. Complications can take many forms and can occur during the prenatal period as well as during the baby’s delivery that could be considered Connecticut medical malpractice.
New data shows that 50,000 mothers are severely injured and over 700 die each year from delivery complications.
Prenatal complications including gestational diabetes, pregnancy-induced hypertension (high blood pressure), cardiac disease, renal (kidney) complications or blood clotting abnormalities that may require on-going management during the pregnancy. If your obstetrician/gynecologist failed to refer you or your loved one to a specialist for management of a condition and permanent injury occurred, this may be Connecticut medical malpractice.
If disability or death followed delivery, your’s or your loved one’s medical records should be examined. A Connecticut medical malpractice case is complex.
