Preeclampsia is a condition that develops during pregnancy, resulting in high blood pressure and various other red flags that often signify damage to the liver and kidneys. Generally, this condition starts to develop 20 weeks into an expecting mother’s pregnancy and, if it goes untreated, it can result in severe or fatal complications for both a mother and her child. If your doctor failed to diagnose you with preeclampsia, resulting injuries to you or your baby, you need to hire skilled legal representation as soon as possible to recover the compensation you deserve and need at this time.

What Are the Risk Factors of Preeclampsia?
Doctors should be aware of the risk factors of preeclampsia and monitor expecting mothers who are more susceptible to developing this condition. Below is a list of some of the most common risk factors:
- The mother is under the age of 20 or over the age of 40 at the time of her pregnancy
- It is the mother’s first pregnancy
- The mother is obese
- There is a history of preeclampsia in the family
- The mother is carrying multiple fetuses
- The mother has a history of kidney disease, migraines, chronic high blood pressure, lupus, or has type 1 or type 2 diabetes
If you had one or more these risk factors and your doctor failed to monitor you and properly diagnose you with preeclampsia, resulting in injuries to either you or your child, you might be eligible for compensation that could cover the cost of medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Do not postpone pursuing legal action.
