Placental Abruption

Birth Injuries: What is Placental Abruption?

Placental abruption is a rare, but serious condition caused when the placenta peels away from the uterus lining. It can deprive a fetus of oxygen and cause heavy bleeding in the mother.

The serious effects of placental abruption include:

  • Premature birth
  • Neurological development problems
  • Shock
  • Death of the fetus

While the specific cause of placental abruption may be unknown, it can be a side effect of trauma to the uterus, occurring from a car accident, fall or other type accident. In these cases, victims may be able to file a lawsuit against the negligent party and recover compensation for their injury and effects to their unborn baby.

If you suffered placental abruption due to the negligence of others, a birth injury attorney can help you seek the proper and just compensation you deserve for medical bills, treatment, long-term damage to your baby, and the suffering you endured from the condition. In wrongful death claims, a birth injury lawyer can also help recover monetary damages for loss of life.
