Experienced Placental Abruption Lawyers
Prior to the birth of a child the placenta may separate from the uterus. The placental separation can be total or partial. This may result in a deprivation of oxygen to the infant placing the infant at risk for conditions and injuries which can last a lifetime. A placental abruption can even cause the death of the infant. About 1% of pregnant women will experience a placental abruption.
If diagnosed and treated properly, sometimes the consequences of a placental abruption can be avoided. If you believe you or your child suffered an injury due to medical error when diagnosing or treating a placental abruption, have your case investigated by Latona Law’s birth injury attorneys.

In addition, a stressful or traumatic delivery, labor which has gone far too long, the failure to perform a timely or emergency C-section can cause a brain injury or a brain injury resulting in Cerebral Palsy.
Every birth injury deserves to be investigated.
