Early signs of pre-eclampsia include swelling and weight gain. As the disease progresses, mothers often experience other symptoms such as:

  • Headache
  • Vision problems
  • Stomach/abdominal pain
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Decreased urination

At the New York City law firm of Rosenbaum & Rosenbaum, P.C., we offer more than 40 years of experience seeking justice for parents of children with various birth injuries as a result of medical malpractice, including the failure of health care providers to recognize and respond to the symptoms of pre-eclampsia.

We represent families who have lost mothers and children to medical malpractice. Others have children whose lives were permanently changed by pre-eclampsia that resulted in cerebral palsy, blindness or hearing loss. We understand how difficult the experience can be. We work hard to support families as they move forward after a loss, building strong and effective malpractice cases.

A Well-Defined Standard Of Care For Pre-Eclampsia

Medical malpractice cases often revolve around a legal concept called the “standard of care.” A doctor’s actions are measured against the actions other similar providers would take in similar situations.

When it comes to treating pre-eclampsia, there is a well-defined standard of care. We identify departures from standard treatment protocols, looking at ways your OB-GYN, midwife, nurse, hospital or another health care provider failed to act properly. We hold your health care provider accountable for the harm caused.

In order to obtain the best possible results in your case, we often partner with medical experts, economists and life care planners. These experts can accurately quantify the costs associated with your child’s special needs. We focus on obtaining full and fair compensation for your injuries.
