Preeclampsia is a pregnancy complication that can lead to severe and even fatal birth injuries to mother or child. Also known as pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH), preeclampsia is characterized by high blood pressure in the mother after the 20th week of pregnancy. If preeclampsia is left untreated, it can lead to eclampsia, a disease that can cause seizures, stroke, brain herniation and other life-threatening injuries.

If you or a loved one has suffered from preeclampsia and suspect that medical negligence may have played a role, the attorneys at DeLuca & Weizenbaum are here to help you explore your legal options. We have extensive experience and a proven record of success handling birth injury cases for clients throughout Rhode Island.

Contact us today online or by telephone at 888-876-9415 to speak with an experienced Rhode Island preeclampsia attorney.

Preeclampsia and Eclampsia

When a pregnant woman suffers from preeclampsia, her blood pressure can get so high that the blood flow to the baby can be disrupted. This can result in hypoxia or lack of oxygen to the brain and result in cerebral palsy and other birth injuries.

Symptoms of preeclampsia include rapid weight gain, headaches, visual disturbances, swelling and nausea. Because there are few effective treatments for preeclampsia, delivering the baby is often the only way to avoid dangerous complications. Doctors often induce labor or perform cesarean sections to spare the mother and child from the dangers of preeclampsia.

If left untreated, preeclampsia can lead to eclampsia, which is the second leading cause of maternal death in the United States. Eclampsia is characterized by seizures or convulsions in the mother, and can lead to stroke, placental disruption, placental bleeding and other complications.

Our lawyers work with experts in obstetrics and other relevant fields who help us determine if doctors were negligent in the diagnosis and treatment of preeclampsia. If you or your loved one has suffered from this pregnancy complication, we are prepared to help you seek full and fair compensation for your losses.
