Did you have preeclampsia while you were pregnant? Did your doctor or hospital fail to diagnose or treat it until it was too late? Did you or your child suffer injuries as a result? For a free consultation, see the medical malpractice attorneys of Pennsylvania.
Preeclampsia is a condition of pregnancy marked by high blood pressure and excess protein in the urine. If this condition is left untreated, preeclampsia can lead to serious or even fatal complications for both mother and baby. Eclampsia, the final and most severe phase of preeclampsia, can occur. In addition to the previously mentioned signs of preeclampsia, women with eclampsia often have seizures. Eclampsia can cause coma and even death of the mother and baby, and can occur before, during, or after delivery.
