Texas Obstetrician Malpractice Attorneys
Childbirth is a natural — but far from straightforward — process. Lots of things can happen in the days and hours surrounding the birth that can endanger the child and the mother. In fact, the entire family is affected by obstetrical complications.
Many of these dangers are not the fault, or brought on by, the doctor or other personnel. But these “professionals” are expected to know how to deal with common problems. Sometimes their failure constitutes malpractice. Contact a Texas obstetrician malpractice lawyer.
Monitoring Mother and Child
The condition of the mother and the child is by definition changing and needs to be constantly monitored. The mother’s blood pressure and other vital signs need to be monitored to prevent preeclampsia, or hypertension and other problems. Postpartum hemorrhage is a life-threatening possibility referring to severe loss of blood.
Other problems that may be due to obstetrician malpractice include:
- HELLP syndrome
- Vaginal breech delivery
- Cesarean (“C-section”) complications
- Uterine rupture
- Postpartum hemorrhage
- Uterine rupture
- Pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH)

- Clotting abnormalities
- Brain damage caused to a baby by forceps delivery
- Liver injury
