Can I sue the Michigan doctor who failed to diagnose placental abruption?

Yes, you can sue the Michigan doctor who failed to diagnose placental abruption.  A placental abruption during pregnancy is the premature separation of that placenta from the site of uterine implantation before delivery of the fetus.  The fetus can suffer serious and permanent injuries, including brain damage, when this condition occurs.

Doctors are trained to promptly recognize when a placental abruption occurs and take the necessary steps to prevent injury or harm to both the mother and child. A mother or baby who suffers injuries due to the Michigan doctor’s failure to properly treat a uterine rupture may have the right to file a lawsuit against the negligent doctor.  These birth injury lawsuits seek compensation for the lifetime injuries suffered by the child and to provide necessary funds to the parents to care for the child during his or her lifetime. 

If you or someone you know suffers placental abruption injuries due to the Michigan doctor’s failure to recognize the symptoms, contact an attorney immediately to discuss your case. It is necessary to contact an experienced birth injury lawyer to review the records so that a determination can be made as to whether the mother and child are entitled to compensation for their injuries.
