How Intrauterine Growth Retardation Can Harm Mother And Child

Every parent wants their child to have the best start possible. You go in for an anatomy scan at 20 weeks. You see little hands and feet. But, the technician says that there is an issue. Your child is severely undersized. It is a condition called intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) and, in many cases, adequate medical care can prevent it. But, at its worst, your child can suffer with developmental issues and, as a mother, you may be at high risk for medical complications.

At Wilt & Klausing, PLLC, we provide compassionate and experienced legal care for Louisville families. Our attorneys are former nurses and insurance investigators. We know how to identify medical malpractice in IUGR cases. Reach us at 800-675-4691. Your consultation is free.

Could Your Medical Team Prevent IUGR?

Many circumstances cause IUGR. Some, like carrying multiples, cannot be prevented. Medical professionals can, however, prevent certain cases. We ask important questions about your medical condition, like:

  • Are any of your medications associated with IUGR? If so, did your medical professional instruct you to stop taking it?
  • Do you suffer from kidney or lung disease? Was your illness diagnosed in a timely manner, and was the treatment adequate?
  • Do you have diabetes, high blood pressure or preeclampsia? Was your condition properly managed?

IUGR cases are extremely complicated. If malpractice was a factor in your child’s IUGR, or if an improper medical response to the condition harms you or your child, you can get compensation to help your situation. Our lawyers have medical malpractice experience and in-depth knowledge of the law.
