Failure to Address ABO Incompatibility During Pregnancy

Mellino Law Firm

Diagnosing and Treating ABO Incompatibility During Pregnancy

Certain blood types react negatively to others. For example, when the mother has Type O blood, it can create an adverse reaction when the baby’s blood type is A, B, or AB.

Since the mother’s blood and the blood of her developing baby can sometimes mix during delivery, incompatible blood types during pregnancy can result in medical problems. If incompatibility is detected, the baby should be carefully monitored.

Do I Have a Case?

Jaundice is a common problem for infants, but it usually dissipates within a few days or weeks. If it persists beyond that, medical intervention may be necessary. If it isn’t treated, and the condition causes serious injury such as kernicterus (which can cause permanent brain damage), the doctor and any other healthcare providers responsible for care may be held liable for medical malpractice.
