Ohio Birth Injury Attorneys Provide Superior Legal Representation

In placental abruption cases, our attorneys hold negligent medical professionals accountable

The placenta is an organ in the uterus that provides nutrients and oxygen to the fetus. During a normal pregnancy and delivery, the placenta remains attached to the wall of the uterus until the baby is born. After the baby is born, the placenta will naturally separate from the uterine wall and is “delivered” or expelled through the birth canal.

Placental abruption (also known as abruptio placentae) happens when the placenta separates from the uterine wall before the baby is born. This separation can be partial or complete and can cause severe, life-threatening complications for both the mother and the fetus. The fetus’s life-line is essentially cut or cut off in placental abruption cases.

There are risk factors that increase the odds of suffering placental abruption. Physicians should carefully monitor pregnant women with these risk factors, and they should immediately take action if signs of placental abruption are present. At The Eisen Law Firm, our attorneys hold medical professionals accountable when their negligence leads to injuries due to placental abruption.
