Every year, gestational diabetes affects more than nine percent of pregnancies in the United States, and the prevalence of the condition has been rising. Both the expectant mother and the infant can suffer injuries related to the condition.
An injury related to gestational diabetes can lead to litigation. Claims may include allegations of medical malpractice or negligence, pregnancy or disability discrimination, and others.
Attorneys, physicians, insurers, employers, and other potential parties to litigation should be aware of the types of lawsuits and other liability issues that may arise in connection with injuries related to gestational diabetes.
