Negligence During Prenatal Care

A Firm that Knows Women and Babies Are at Risk of Negligence During Prenatal Care in New Jersey

Our lawyer-doctor holds medical professionals accountable for poor medical care during pregnancy

Prenatal care refers to the medical care you receive during your pregnancy. At this phase, your obstetrician should schedule regular visits, examine you for high-risk pregnancy, monitor your weight and health and advise you on diet and wellness. Your doctor should also address any problems that could harm your baby or your own health. Negligent prenatal care can tragically result in maternal birth injuries and birth defects.

Since 1976, Seigel Law has advocated for women who have been harmed or whose babies have been injured due to substandard prenatal care. Our team represents women throughout Ridgewood, Hackensack, Fair Lawn, Teaneck, Garfield, Fort Lee, Newark, Jersey City, Paterson, Elizabeth and Clifton in challenging medical malpractice claims.

We fight for your fair compensation for the damage you or your baby suffered because of the negligence of your obstetrician, nurses, clinic and hospital. Throughout your case, we show you the compassion and respect you deserve. Our lawyers are available to thoroughly answer your questions and clearly advise you of your options.

Damages to mothers’ health caused by inadequate prenatal care

Quality prenatal care can positively affect your own health and well-being. However, if your ob-gyn makes mistakes during your pregnancy, you could suffer lifelong repercussions, such as these serious medical issues:

  • Undiagnosed or untreated preeclampsia
  • Undiagnosed or untreated gestational diabetes
  • Undiagnosed Rh incompatibility
  • Improperly managed complications and injuries during labor and delivery
  • Health problems from vitamin deficiencies

Babies’ birth injuries resulting from negligent prenatal care

Your baby’s healthcare starts in the womb. Everything you do to your body and the steps your doctors take affect whether your child is born healthy and how your child will develop during the entire course of life. Prenatal care is a vital part of the equation.

Without adequate prenatal care, your child may be at risk of:

  • In utero infection
  • Fetal stroke
  • Cerebral palsy and other brain disorders
  • Spinal bifida caused by folic acid deficiency
  • Health problems resulting from nutrient deficiencies

    After the misfortune of suffering an injury, I had the good fortune to choose Seigel Law to represent me. During my initial meeting with Jan Seigel, I found him to be extremely confident and reassuring---he totally put me at ease. I was represented by Mark Mc Bratney---an EXCELLENT attorney. He was supportive and professional through the entire process, and provided an excellent outcome for my case.
