Few uterus ruptures happen without warning signs. Typically, the mother may feel pain or experience symptoms of a hemorrhage, and the baby's heart rate may decrease or decreased fetal movements may be detected. All of these symptoms are serious and all of these uterine rupture symptoms require an examination by a doctor so that an appropriate diagnosis can be made.

Treatment for Uterine Ruptures

If a doctor determines that the uterus has ruptured, then typically an emergency Cesarean Section will be required. The doctor will first deliver the baby via C-Section and then determine whether the uterus can be saved or a hysterectomy is required.

The failure of a doctor to recognize the symptoms of uterine rupture, appropriately diagnose a uterine rupture, or appropriately treat a uterine rupture may be medical malpractice in New York.

Contact a New York birth injury lawyer if you, or your child, have been hurt.

Unfortunately, there are some cases of uterine rupture that may be unavoidable and untreatable. However, if your doctor failed to appropriately diagnose and treat your condition, you may be entitled to damages.

Potential New York birth injury damages depend on the harm that has been caused to your child but may include past and future medical bills, loss of future income, out-of-pocket expenses, and pain and suffering.
