Compassionate Attorneys With Experience In Eclampsia Cases

Hypertension or high blood pressure during pregnancy is known as pre-eclampsia. Pre-eclampsia is not a disorder in itself, but a collection of warning signs for eclampsia. Eclampsia can lead to comas and seizures, and it is potentially fatal to both the mother and the child.

If you or your child has been hurt by eclampsia, contact McKeen & Associates, P.C., for a free initial consultation. One of the most difficult aspects of birth injury litigation is determining causation. We have more than 30 years of experience with catastrophic injury cases. We will investigate the medical evidence to determine whether your doctor failed to spot signs of pre-eclampsia and take appropriate medical action.

We are compassionate.

Although we do have a reputation for being extremely aggressive in litigation, with a track record of multimillion-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.

Warning Signs

Signs of high blood pressure or unusual swelling in the hands and feet (edema) should put a doctor on alert for pre-eclampsia. With proper diagnosis and treatment, eclampsia can be avoided in almost every instance of pre-eclampsia. 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 pre-eclampsia. From our office in Detroit, we serve clients in Michigan, Illinois and elsewhere throughout the country.

Free Consultations | No Fee Unless We Win.

Most birth injury cases of this kind are settled out of court early on in the process. On occasion, however, a defendant will not want to make an acceptable settlement offer and the case will need to be litigated. We handle all our medical malpractice cases on contingency, so you will not have to pay attorney fees until we win, regardless of how long the case takes. Email us or call us at 313-524-8570 to schedule a free initial consultation.
