Maternal Risk Factors
Our Birth Injury Attorneys Explain
During pregnancy, doctors need to closely monitor a woman's health. Otherwise, a woman's well-being can be put at risk due to health problems or various complications that sometimes occur during pregnancy.
But it's not just the mother's well-being that can be compromised due to health issues that arise during pregnancy. The child can develop physical or cognitive issues during pregnancy or during the delivery that can last throughout the child's entire life.
Doctors should be aware of the birth injury risk factors often associated with a mother's health. Unfortunately, many physicians miss the warning signs. If you believe that's what happened to you, we want to meet with you as soon as possible to discuss all your available legal options.
The Atlanta birth injury attorneys at the Tyrone Law Firm, PC have decades of experience handling such cases throughout Georgia. That's why we know so much about the warning signs and risk factors often associated with a mother's health during pregnancy. These include:
- High-Risk Pregnancies
- Hypertension and Preeclampsia
- Gestational Diabetes
- Pelvic Insufficiency
- Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC)
If a doctor overlooked or misdiagnosed any of these issues, that could have been the reason why your child was born with a birth injury. The doctor's misdiagnosis might have also been the reason why other medical professionals did not perform a caesarean section (C section), which may have prevented your child's birth injury. Or a medical professional may have failed to appropriately respond to a known risk factor. But if you don't have an attorney working with you on your case, you will likely never discover the truth.
We Can Help
In a perfect world, doctors and other medical professionals would admit they made a mistake and missed something that resulted in your child's birth injury. Unfortunately, most physicians rarely admit they made a mistake. Or if they do, the hospital they work for or their insurance provider will likely refuse to fairly compensate your family.
That's where we come in. Attorney Nelson Tyrone and his talented legal team have dedicated their careers to defending the rights of families dealing with severe birth injuries. We know exactly what evidence to look for and what questions to ask to trace such issues back to medical issues involving the mother during pregnancy.
If necessary, we're prepared to take whoever was responsible for your child's birth injury to court. That's why we will prepare your case for trial right from the start. Such legal cases can be extremely complicated. They can sometimes take months or years to litigate. That's why many law firms avoid tackling such tough cases. We thrive on them. That's because we realize that our work can have a positive influence on our clients' lives.
