Uterine Ruptures

Obstetrical Complications

When a woman has an abnormally positioned fetus, has had numerous full-term pregnancies in the past, attempts a vaginal birth after cesarean deliveries (VBACs) or is given Pitocin or other labor-inducing medications, she can be at an increased risk for uterine rupture.

Unfortunately, there are often no warning signs of uterine ruptures that occur during the late stages of pregnancy. During childbirth, however; warning signs may become apparent and require an emergency C-section. Such signs include severe localized pain, fetal heart rate abnormalities, vaginal bleeding or signs that the baby has "receded" back up the birth canal from a lower position.

However despite the fact that many uterine ruptures turn out to be "mild" and result in no serious harm, complications such as brain damage to the baby and fatal injuries to the mother, baby or both can and do occur.

At Jeffrey M. Goldberg Law Offices, we understand the devastating physical, emotional and financial effects that accompany these cases of uterine rupture. We also understand how to investigate and clearly establish medical negligence by the health care professionals taking part in those tragic events.

In the course of representing birth injury victims in Illinois, in Wisconsin and throughout the United States over the past three decades, our attorneys have developed extensive knowledge of the medical issues and standards of care that apply to these situations. Our attorneys are aided in their efforts to seek justice by full-time staff member and registered nurse Margaret Oberts, and by the full medical library we've built for our practice.

Using all of these resources, we provide the kind of strong, aggressive representation clients need to obtain the full compensation they deserve.
