Medical Negligence: Failure to Recognize Risks of Ectopic Pregnancy
Proving medical negligence stemming from a pregnancy can be challenging; however, there are ways to hole the doctor or medical staff liable. It is best to speak with an Ohio injury lawyer who has experience and resources to handle these types of claims.
When it comes to an ectopic pregnancy you may have a case of medical negligence if the doctor failed to detect the condition. There are risk factors that can increase the chance of this circumstance, which may help a doctor in diagnosing. If those risk factors are ignored or additional tests are not performed, they may be held liable.
Patients who are high risk for ectopic pregnancy should be closely monitored by a doctor. A failure to do so could also be a case of medical negligence.
Furthermore, if the condition is diagnosed but not immediately treated leading to a rupture, this may give you cause for filing a claim. Even if the rupture could not be prevented, a failure to properly treat with surgery may also be considered medical negligence.
To better understand your rights and to learn if you have a case of medical negligence related to your ectopic pregnancy, it would be best to seek legal counsel.
