Birth Injury Attorney in Portland
Legal Representation for Preeclampsia & HELLP Syndrome
Preeclampsia is a serious condition in pregnant women that can lead to a variety of problems, including HELLP syndrome. Hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, and low platelet count (HELLP) is an advanced type of preeclampsia that may occur when a medical provider fails to diagnose the condition or provide appropriate treatment. At Angel Law, P.C., our Portland birth injury attorney represents clients who have suffered damages due to HELLP syndrome.
If your doctor failed to properly diagnose or treat HELLP syndrome, call (503) 862-8666 to have your case reviewed in a free consultation.
Failure to Diagnose HELLP Syndrome
When preeclampsia advances to the point of HELLP syndrome, delivering the baby becomes necessary. If the doctor fails to accurately diagnose the problem and provide the appropriate standard of care, it can lead to blood pressure problems, liver problems, and bleeding that puts both the mother and baby at risk.
You may be able to recover compensation if your doctor failed to:
- Order necessary blood tests
- Recognize the warning signs
- Take proper precautions
- Follow standard procedures for diagnoses and treatment
The symptoms of HELLP syndrome may include headaches, blurred vision, upper abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and tingling in the extremities. When the doctor fails to take appropriate action and injury occurs, you can pursue compensation. Unfortunately, it is common for doctors to refuse to admit they made a mistake or try to cover up their negligence.
