Lawsuit for PPH

If you suffered severe injury after suffering from PPH after giving birth, you may have grounds for a PPH lawsuit. Contact a qualified Kentucky birth injury lawyer to discuss your legal options.

There are a wide variety of birth injuries and maternal birth injuries that can occur during and after childbirth. There are many different factors that can contribute to these injuries. 

But when your healthcare provider fails to take the necessary steps to prevent, diagnose, or treat these birth injuries, you may have a medical malpractice lawsuit on your hands. This may be the case for birth injuries to the mother, such as PPH. 

At Wilt and Thompson, PLLC, we are committed to getting justice for those impacted by negligent healthcare providers and facilities. If you believe you may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit for PPH, you can contact our Kentucky birth injury lawyers to discuss the individual details of your case. 

What Is PPH?

PPH, also known as postpartum hemorrhage, is a type of severe bleeding that occurs after childbirth. This should always be carefully monitored after a woman gives birth to a baby. 

Signs of postpartum hemorrhage include vaginal bleeding that isn’t slowing or stopping, a sudden drop in blood pressure, or an increased heart rate. If the bleeding cannot be controlled or stopped, removing residual pieces of the placenta, a hysterectomy, or blood transfusion may be necessary in order to save the mother’s life. 

How to File a PPH Lawsuit in Kentucky

In order for your birth injury lawyer at Wilt and Thompson, PLLC, to be successful in pursuing a medical malpractice claim for PPH, we must be able to prove that your healthcare provider breached their standard of care.

In cases of PPH, that could mean they failed to diagnose PPH in time, failed to supervise other members of your birthing team, failed to properly treat the postpartum hemorrhage, or did not have the training or experience necessary to handle such a complex birth injury. 

Once your lawyer has determined that medical negligence occurred, we can file a claim with the insurance company and hopefully secure a fair and reasonable settlement for the birth injury you endured. 

However, if the insurer fails to fairly compensate you, it may be in your best interests to move forward with a lawsuit so you can be awarded full compensation for your suffering.
