Discovering you are expecting a baby is usually a wonderful feeling and you would expect your pregnancy to proceed without any major complications. However, when things go wrong during pregnancy a lot of worry and distress can be caused to both the mother and the rest of the family. Pregnant women often experience symptoms and feelings that they would not normally suffer from and most of these arise as a normal side affect of expecting a baby. However, it is always crucial to ensure that seemingly minor symptoms and complaints are not mistaken for something more serious. Obstetric Cholestasis is a potentially serious condition which affects pregnant women and their unborn babies and usually presents itself in the form of severe itching to the hands, feet and abdomen of the pregnant woman. The condition is caused by the liver disfunctioning during pregnancy and it is crucial that any pregnant woman complaining of these symptoms to their GP or midwife is sent for immediate blood and liver functioning tests to rule out, or confirm, Obstetric Cholestasis.
If the medical professionals fail to diagnose Obstetric Cholestasis – or, if there is a delay in diagnosing the condition – there can be serious for both the mother and baby. There is an increased risk of premature birth and in the most severe cases the condition, if not managed properly, can lead to the baby being stillborn. There is also an increased of the mother suffering a haemorrhage in the first few days after the birth of the baby.
If you have been affected by Obstetric Cholestasis and you believe the condition may not have been diagnosed in time or at all by the medical professionals treating you, you may be able to make a claim for medical negligence. Our specialist solicitors understand that this may be a particularly worrying and upsetting time for you and they will be able to answer any questions you may have about making a claim for compensation. Our expert solicitors will guide you through the process of making a claim and will advise you on your chances of pursuing a successful medical negligence claim.
The cost of funding a medical negligence claim
Our expert solicitors will be able to discuss with you the various options of funding your claim which may include legal aid, a no-win no-fee agreement, or legal expense insurance. These options will be discussed with you in details to ensure you choose the option that is right for you.
