Placental Abruption occurs when the placenta separates before it should. It accounts for approximately 30% of all antepartum haemorrhage. It is classed as an obstetric emergency and cannot be predicted because is usually occurs in pregnancies without any risk factors.
Placental abruption may show symptoms of vaginal bleeding, abdominal pain, contractions and shock or foetal distress.
Depending on the degree of abruption and the volume of blood lost, mum may be collapsed.
The clinician’s first priority is mum’s life followed by baby.
This condition can lead to complications for both mum and baby. If not recognised early enough placental abruptions can lead to the death of mum or baby so early diagnosis and management is vital.
How can we help?
Negligence Claimline are specialists in compensation claims. We have helped many people make a compensation claim for abrupted placentas which could have been identified earlier or treatment given. If you have had a placental abruption which was not managed correctly, you could be entitled to make a compensation claim.
Here at Negligence Claimline our friendly team are here to help you get the support you need. Working with a panel of specialist medical negligence solicitors, we can assist you with your potential claim.
Sometimes an apology is enough, but in other cases compensation will be the only solution to help you get your life back on track.
Our service, putting you in contact with one of our expert panel members, is free and you are not obliged to take the advice the solicitor gives you, or to progress your claim any further if you do not wish.
Can I sue the NHS?
The NHS was created so that good healthcare should be available to all, and it is one of the country’s proudest achievements. However, if something goes wrong during your treatment you deserve answers and, where necessary, financial compensation.
We do not treat your claim lightly. However, the treatment you consider negligent must be considered unreasonable, irresponsible, and harmful.
When someone suffers an injury that impacts their live, or that of a loved one, then it is vital that the NHS has the procedures in place to both compensate the patient and learn from their mistakes.
