What Is Placental Abruption?

Placental abruption is an uncommon yet potentially devastating complication during pregnancy in which the placenta detaches from the mother’s uterus. Only about 1% of all pregnant mothers experience placental abruption. 

The placenta provides life-sustaining oxygen and nutrition to your baby while it’s in utero. When it separates from the uterine wall prematurely, your child is deprived of critical sustenance, and the impact can be profound. 

Depending upon the severity of the abruption and if it goes undiagnosed, your child may experience the following complications: 

You may suffer serious injury as well, including significant blood loss, hemorrhaging, and kidney failure. You might require serious medical intervention, such as a blood transfusion. 

Recognizing the symptoms of placental abruption is critically important in order to mitigate the damage it can cause. Some common signs include abdominal pain, a tender uterus, back pain, a decrease in your fetus’ movement, and intense and extended contractions. 

If you or your child have been injured by placental abruption, it’s essential to get prompt and proper medical care. It’s also important to talk to a seasoned medical malpractice attorney to find out if your medical care team is legally responsible.  

Reach out to us today to schedule a free initial consultation. We’ll investigate your case. If we conclude that your medical providers failed to diagnose it and take action to lessen the harm, we’ll fight to get you and your child the compensation you deserve and need. 

What Should I Do if I Think My Doctor Failed To Diagnose My Placental Abruption?

While the causes of placental abruption are often unknown, your medical providers should remain vigilant in recognizing its signs, symptoms, and risk factors. Not every mistake a healthcare provider makes amounts to medical malpractice. 

To establish a claim for medical malpractice in Georgia, you must show that your doctor failed to exercise the degree of skill and care a reasonable doctor would have exercised under similar circumstances. You also must show that their failure to do so caused your and your child’s placental abruption injuries.

Proving a claim for medical malpractice isn’t easy. You have the burden of proving each and every element of your medical malpractice claim by a preponderance of the evidence. This means you must establish it is more likely than not that your doctor breached their legal duty to provide you with reasonable care.
