Uterine rupture is an injury most closely associated with an injury to the uterus when the mother has previously given birth via cesarean section. Uterine rupture is possible in mothers who have never undergone a cesarean section, but this happens less frequently. These injuries almost always happen late in the pregnancy and often occur under the stress of heavy contractions.
Complications during labor are broad and varied occurrences. Mothers and fetuses both exhibit distinct symptoms in the event of a uterine rupture injury that should be immediately recognizable by competent medical personnel. It requires medical personnel to act swiftly and decisively. Failure to do so could have dire consequences for both the mother and her child.
When medical professionals fail to provide timely and effective treatment to a patient and that patient suffers an injury as a result, they should be held accountable for the harm they have caused. At Hone Law, I help people throughout the Detroit metro area and the state to recover compensation for injuries suffered due to negligent doctors, nurses and other caregivers.
I also have extensive experience with uterine inversion cases that involve the uterus being turned inside out when the placenta is being removed. Serious injury can result when these procedures are mishandled and I will fight aggressively to see that you are compensated for any harm that has come to you.
