Pre-eclampsia results from a pregnant woman developing pregnancy-induced hypertension. It can result in severe damage to the kidneys and liver.
There is no cure for pre-eclampsia but it is an eminently manageable condition. Still, it costs too many lives. An OB-GYN failing to recognize the signs (high blood pressure, increased protein in one’s urine) or investigate potential problems of pre-eclampsia, or misdiagnosing it as heartburn, can result — and often does — in death.
To fight back against an injury from pre-eclampsia, you need a seasoned attorney possessing the skills and resources to work with medical specialists and establish the facts of your case. You need a dedicated and aggressive advocate focused on protecting the rights of you and your family in pursuing a medical malpractice claim in court.
At Furr & Henshaw, we make it our job to help people put a stop to these tragedies by fighting for clients’ rights and interests. We work hard to help our clients address the terrible financial setbacks that often accompany pre-eclampsia. Our goal is to help victims move on with their lives.
