Compensation for Doctor Negligence During Labor and Delivery
The weeks leading up to a child's birth — especially the moments of delivery — are filled with potential dangers for both the mother and the child. The doctors and other medical professionals need to be especially diligent in protecting the mother and child from injuries. In most cases, a competent doctor should be able to spot uterine rupture and deal with the situation immediately to avoid injuries to the mother and child.
If you or your child have been injured due to a uterine rupture during childbirth, your life will never be the same. When the doctor's negligence or malpractice are to blame, you are entitled to be compensated for your suffering. Contact a Detroit uterine rupture lawyer from Michigan's McKeen & Associates, P.C. We will look into your case to determine liability and if you have a case, we will fight for the maximum compensation award possible.

Uterine rupture occurs most frequently during a vaginal birth after cesarean delivery, or "VBac." Uterine scars left by cesarean delivery can greatly increase the risk of rupture during subsequent vaginal births, and, of course, a greater number of cesarean births correspondingly increase the risk of rupture.
When it goes unnoticed or is not dealt with properly by the doctor, uterine rupture can result in much more serious consequences, including asphyxia, cerebral palsy and other forms of brain damage, and in the most serious cases, wrongful death.
