Minneapolis Eclampsia & Preeclampsia Lawyer
High maternal blood pressure, protein in the mother’s urine, and swollen feet and hands are the three leading signs of preeclampsia. This condition, which typically occurs relatively early during pregnancy, usually causes organ damage. Eclampsia, which happens later, is a more extreme form of preeclampsia. Eclampsia usually causes severe post-delivery seizures, These seizures often cause comas.
The aforementioned signs are relatively easy to spot, if doctors are looking for them. However, many doctors don’t perform regular physical examinations or take regular blood, stool, and urine samples during pregnancy. In such an environment, it’s very easy to miss the warning signs. Preeclampsia and eclampsia are some of the most dangerous conditions a mother can develop during and immediately after pregnancy. So, especially given the high duty of care in these cases, there is no excuse for missing these signs.

Why Should I File a Medical Malpractice Claim?
When families deal with unexpected situations like a seriously-ill child, filing a legal claim for damages is usually the last thing on their minds. Frequently, families don’t associate these issues with negligence, or a lack of care. Instead, they assume they must deal with the situation without any outside help.
Obtaining that help is the best reason to file a birth injury or other negligence claim. The plain and simple fact is that chronic health issues, like the effects of a childhood brain injury, are extremely expensive. These incidents often push families to the breaking point from an emotional perspective. Additional financial strain is often more than they can handle.
Only a Minneapolis eclampsia and preeclampsia lawyer can obtain maximum compensation in these cases. This compensation usually includes money to pay sky-high medical bills as well as something extra that helps families move on emotionally.
Incidentally, a negligence claim does not “blame” anyone for a birth injury. Instead, these claims are simply about responsibility. If a doctor unintentionally runs over your mailbox, the doctor must pay to replace it. The same principle applies here.
Furthermore, most personal injury claims settle out of court. So, there’s no need to worry about an emotional legal showdown which places a spotlight on your newborn. Instead, most families are simply able to move on with their lives.
How Do I Know Which Lawyer is Right for Me?
There are literally hundreds of qualified birth injury attorneys in Minneapolis. Almost all of them can competently handle most claims. To find the right one for you, focus on the following areas during your search:
- Experience: Law school teaches students to think like lawyers. Only experience teaches them how to effectively advocate for clients. Your case is far too valuable to be an inexperienced lawyer’s training tool.
- Dedication: Negligence in general, and medical negligence in particular, is a very nuanced area of the law. Attorneys who are very experienced in other areas might only handle a few negligence matters on the side. These lawyers might miss key details in your case.
- Accessibility: Attorneys are accessible via the internet and telephone. But these meetings cannot substitute for face-to-face interaction. So, your lawyers should be physically accessible. But over-accessibility could be a red flag. If you are a lawyer’s only client, there might be a reason for that.
Your search should be thorough. Picking a lawyer is perhaps the most important decision a family can make. However, do not take too long. You have a limited amount of time to act in these cases.
