Complications of Childbirth

For an expectant mother, childbirth is an exciting and nerve-wracking time.  Most of the time, doctors, midwives and nurses do an excellent job of keeping mom and baby safe during labor and delivery.  Sometimes, however, medical providers can be grossly negligent in their medical care to the laboring mother.   Thomas & Wan represent mothers who have been injured or made ill due to malpractice by a doctor, midwife, nurse or other health care professional during pregnancy, labor and delivery, or after delivery. Such cases may involve:

  • Preeclampsia and eclampsia
  • Obstetrical complications for the mother or obstetrical nurse negligence
  • C-section injuries
  • Postpartum hemorrhage
  • Infections
  • Prolapsed umbilical cord
  • Failure to monitor the infant
  • Vaginal tears
  • Ruptured uterus
  • Abruptio placenta
  • Cephalopelvic disproportion
  • Delivery trauma or improper resuscitation of the baby
  • Other pregnancy-related negligence

At Thomas & Wan, we have helped families dealing with the devastating loss of a mother or serious permanent brain damage due to gross negligence during pregnancy and childbirth. Please contact us today for a free and candid consultation.
