Placental Abruption

Lessening the Impact of Placental Abruption

The birth injury attorneys at Giroux Amburn, Southfield know that mothers have a connection with their babies that no one else does. And if that connection is disrupted, it can have serious long-term consequences for your baby’s health. When that happens, our attorneys are prepared to stand up for your rights.

Placental abruption is a serious condition that occurs when the placenta separates from the uterus wall before birth. This cuts the baby off from their primary supply of oxygen and nutrients and puts the mother’s health in danger as well.

Placental abruption alone is not cause for a medical malpractice lawsuit. But it is medical negligence if a doctor fails to properly diagnose and treat placental abruption.

If left untreated, placental abruption can result in serious consequences for the baby, including:

  • Premature birth
  • Breathing problems
  • Feeding problems
  • Low blood count or low blood pressure
  • Permanent brain damage
  • Risk of other birth injuries
  • Stillbirth

It can also result in dangerous consequences for the mother, including:

  • Hemorrhaging
  • Improper uterine contractions
  • Premature birth
  • Failure of proper blood clotting
  • Potential for severe shock
  • Disseminated intravascular coagulation (blood clots forming throughout the body)
  • Potential need for a hysterectomy
