Warwick Placental Abruption Lawyer
Representing Victims Of Obstetrical Malpractice
Placental abruption (also called abruptio placentae) occurs when the placental lining separates from the uterus during pregnancy. The most common symptom is late pregnancy bleeding. If it is not diagnosed or treated properly, placental abruption can have serious effects on both mother and child, such as stillborn birth.
If you suffered a placental abruption during pregnancy and either you or your child suffered lasting harm, you may be entitled to claim compensation for your losses and suffering. Such cases are complex, and they require representation by a highly skilled and knowledgeable medical malpractice lawyer.
