OB-GYN Fails to Diagnose Pre-Eclampsia, Mother Dies
A young 16-year-old Native American woman from St. Paul died in the late stages of her pregnancy when an OB-GYN failed to diagnose and treat her pre-eclampsia at a clinic visit. She presented to the hospital soon after and experienced eclamptic seizures that caused a brain injury and death. Her child survived his mother’s death. She was also survived by a close family that brought a wrongful death claim on the child’s behalf. The case settled in a mediation for a confidential sum that provided for the child’s future needs.
