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, Giuffra, Ruffo & Plotkin 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
and legal action is called for.
We're ready to help you explore your legal options during this difficult
time. Call our offices at (888) 260-0473 today.
Stillbirth & Malpractice
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.
Compensation in these cases can address:
- Medical expenses (past and future)
- Lost income
- Pain and suffering
- Other damages
