Negligent Prenatal Care

For many women, pregnancy is a vulnerable time in life. Complications can arise at any stage, and it is critical for health care providers to detect and treat any adverse conditions. Negligent prenatal care can lead to serious consequences for both mother and baby.

Our birth injury attorneys are accomplished and experienced in handling these types of cases.

Failure to Diagnose Gestational Diabetes and Other Types of Inadequate Prenatal Care

Negligent prenatal care can take many forms. Common and tragic instances of negligent care include the following:

  • Failure to diagnose or control gestational diabetes
  • Failure to properly treat preeclampsia/hypertension
  • Failure to recognize problems with the amniotic fluid

These errors can cause permanent and lasting harm. For example, untreated preeclampsia — a relatively common condition during pregnancy — can result in stroke and premature delivery.

"[Jeff DeFrancisco] displayed a level of professionalism, knowledge of both medical malpractice law and medicine that can not be surpassed. In addition, he was a compassionate, caring attorney through the whole process... I was extremely happy with his expertise and highly recommend him." — Y.T.
