Gestational Hypertension Causes Serious Complications
High blood pressure during pregnancy (often called gestational hypertension or pregnancy-induced hypertension) can cause serious medical complications. It can even lead to the death of the mother or infant. Medical professionals like doctors and nurses should be well aware of how high blood pressure puts you and your child at risk. Follow-up care can cost thousands of dollars, even in some of the best cases.
Malpractice cases are difficult, especially those involving pregnancy. They involve many complicated medical details and have serious implications for your future.

Common Problems Associated With Pregnancy-Induced Hypertension
High blood pressure during pregnancy has many associated risks both for the infant and the mother. Some examples include:
- Organ damage, including liver and kidney failure
- Inadequate blood supply to the baby or even placental abruption
- Maternal seizures, stroke and death
- Emergency cesarean delivery, often before the pregnancy is full-term
If your doctor fails to detect your gestational hypertension or fails to adequately treat it, you may be able to obtain a settlement to cover your extra expenses. As your attorneys, we fight to make sure you get the help you need.
