New York Stillbirth Lawyers

Put 30 Years of Legal Experience on Your Side

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
