After A Tragic Maternal Loss During Childbirth

When medical mistakes made during childbirth lead to the death of the mother, the entire family is left with severe emotional grief and, in many cases, financial hardship.

How We Can Help

While doctors and hospitals aggressively defend against wrongful death lawsuits, an experienced medical malpractice lawyer can force them to deal openly and honestly. Our lawyers will work diligently to help you pursue full and fair compensation for the losses you have suffered due to the death of your loved one.

We can help surviving family members pursue compensation for:

  • Lost wages
  • Final medical bills
  • Child care costs
  • Loss of household services
  • Lost companionship
  • Emotional pain and suffering
  • Funeral expenses

Common causes of maternal death during childbirth are preeclampsia/eclampsia, misdiagnosis, untreated infections, delayed C-section and other forms of negligence.

In handling a wrongful death lawsuit, we call upon medical experts who help us investigate the circumstances of the injury, including medical treatment during prenatal care, labor, delivery, postpartum care or whenever the fatal injury took place. We have a proven record of success obtaining favorable verdicts and settlements for our clients.
