Uterine Rupture Malpractice Lawyers

Uterine Rupture One of the most severe threats to the health of mother and baby is a uterine rupture during labor and delivery. Most common in women with prior cesarean sections, surgeries in the uterus or when too much pitocin has been administered, a uterine rupture is when the myometrial wall (uterus) tears and the contents of the uterus spill out into the perionatal cavity.

Risks to mother and child

When a woman suffers from obstetric hemorrhage (uterine rupture), the doctors have to monitor both the mother’s health and the baby’s health. If the doctors cannot get the bleeding under control or if the baby is in distress, doctors might have to perform an emergency C-section. Then, if they still cannot get the bleeding under control, a hysterectomy might be required in order to save the mother.

Timely response to signs of distress

Response time is truly of the essence in responding to a uterine rupture. A delayed response or diagnosis to a uterine rupture can threaten the lives of both mother and baby. In particular, a delivery teams delayed reaction may account for a mother’s brain damage, heart attack or kidney damage.

Early warnings

In order to minimize the chance of uterine rupture, doctors and medical staff should conduct a complete health history of the mother and keep careful watch over baby’s fetal heart rate, as a deterioration in the heart rate may be an indication of a potential uterine rupture or hemorrhage.

Client Reviews
Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld. Michonne Proulx
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong
This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim
Jonathan helped my family heal and get compensation after our child was suffered a life threatening injury at daycare. He was sympathetic and in constant contact with us letting us know all he knew every step of the way. We were so blessed to find Jonathan! Giulia
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
