Michigan Preeclampsia Lawyers
We are compassionate.
Although we do have a reputation for being extremely aggressive in litigation, with a track record of multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements, we never forget that our clients are the centerpiece of everything we do. We will listen to your story and do everything we can to help you.
Signs of high blood pressure or unusual swelling in the hands and feet (edema) should put a doctor on alert for preeclampsia. With proper diagnosis and treatment, eclampsia can be avoided in almost every instance of preeclampsia. Most cases of eclampsia can be traced directly back to medical negligence during the pregnancy.
We represent parents and spouses in medical malpractice and wrongful death cases caused by the failure of doctors to properly diagnose and treat preeclampsia.
