The death of the newest member of a family is an incredibly devastating event. In times when families should be celebrating new life rather than mourning a stillborn infant, the attorneys at Rheingold, Valet, Rheingold, McCartney & Giuffra LLP are here to work with you if medical malpractice caused your loss. While each individual case varies, some common causes of stillbirth are birth defects, problems with the placenta or umbilical cord, maternal conditions (including diabetes or hypertension), trauma to the mother's abdominal area, or post-maturity (pregnancies lasting longer than 41 weeks). Unfortunately, there are some cases where medical malpractice is the cause.
Contact us today online or at 888-335-9457 to speak with an experienced New York medical malpractice law firm.
If you received negligent care from your medical center resulting in a stillbirth, and the errors are proven medically, damages may be awarded for the pain and suffering of the mother. Evidence that determines a doctor or hospital staff member has breached their duty of care needs to be established for a jury to find the provider guilty of malpractice. The legal process for compensation can help alleviate some if not all of the medical expenses, lost income through the process, any future medical expenses, pain and suffering, and damages.
