In order to properly treat a postpartum hemorrhage, the cause of the bleeding most be correctly diagnosed. It is not enough that a doctor recognizes that the mother is losing too much blood. Once that has been determined, the doctor must determine why the hemorrhaging is occurring.

If your doctor failed to take this step and you, or a loved one, suffered from an undiagnosed or misdiagnosed postpartum hemorrhage, please call an experienced New York birth injury lawyer at 1-800-PAGAN-911 today.

Four Common Causes of Postpartum Hemorrhaging

Generally, there are four potential causes of excessive postpartum bleeding. These causes, sometimes referred to as the "Four Ts" include:
  • Tone: or a soft uterus
  • Trauma: a tear or other trauma incurred during delivery
  • Tissue: failure to deliver the entire placenta
  • Thrombin: the failure of the blood to clot significantly enough to prevent excessive bleeding

While each of these causes may result in excessive maternal bleeding, each situation is very different and must be treated appropriately in order to avoid maternal injury or death.

What to Do if You, or a Loved one, Have Been Misdiagnosed

If you are suffering because of a postpartum hemorrhage misdiagnosis, then you may be entitled to damages for medical bills, lost income, out-of-pocket expenses and pain and suffering. It is important to contact a New York birth injury attorney as soon as possible after the hemorrhage to discuss your rights.
