The placenta is typically located near the top or side of the uterus. It provides food and oxygen to the fetus as it develops. A placenta previa occurs when the placenta attaches to the lower side of the uterus and either partially or completely blocks the cervix. With the cervix obstructed, the baby cannot pass through the birth canal. Placenta previa is a rare and natural occurrence that is not caused by medical negligence. However, failing to diagnose and treat placenta previa is negligent and can result in severe and life-threatening injuries.

As an experienced Greenville, SC medical malpractice lawyer, Bobby Jones has a proven track record of advocating on behalf of victims of undiagnosed and untreated placenta previa. If you or someone that you know has suffered an injury as a result of an undiagnosed and untreated placenta previa, contact Bobby Jones Law to discuss your rights and options.

Common Symptoms and Risk Factors for Placenta Previa

A common symptom of placenta previa includes light to heavy bleeding during the latter stages of a pregnancy. Placenta previa is often diagnosed during the second trimester through the use of an ultrasound.

While placenta previa is a naturally occurring condition, some mothers are more likely than others to develop it. Common risk factors include:

  • Mothers over the age of 35
  • Mothers with a history of smoking or drug abuse
  • Mothers that are pregnant with more than one fetus. A larger placenta is needed to support more than one fetus. Since it is larger there is a risk that it could cover the cervix
  • Mothers that have previously had a placenta previa
  • Mothers with a history of surgery on their uterus. This can include a prior C-section or surgery to remove fibroids

Even when a placenta previa develops, it is possible for it to correct itself naturally. Since the uterus will expand it may move the placenta away from the cervix. The largest risks of placenta previa are bleeding and premature birth. Mothers may also require a hysterectomy following delivery. Treating a placenta previa that completely obstructs the cervix typically requires that a C-section be performed after 36 weeks into the pregnancy. With a partial placenta previa it may be possible to have a normal delivery. Patients diagnosed with placenta previa will typically spend at least a portion of their pregnancy on bed rest.

If a physician fails to diagnose and treat placenta previa he or she can be held liable for the injuries or death that the mother and/or fetus suffer. An experienced Greenville, SC medical malpractice lawyer can review your case in detail to determine whether the physician provided an adequate standard of care and help you obtain the compensation that you deserve.
