A particularly devastating type of wrongful death is fetal death, in which a fetus or newborn dies just before, during or shortly after delivery. If you are dealing with this kind of tragedy, you deserve the help of a lawyer who can obtain the compensation you need. You should be able to trust your doctor throughout your pregnancy, as well as the hospital staff during delivery. If one or both has let you down in the worst way possible, resulting in the death of your child, the best place to turn is our office. At The Law Office of Robert H. Kleinschmidt, P.C., in Scottsdale, we work hard to help hold negligent medical professionals accountable and to help you recover the full and fair compensation to which you are entitled.
The Costs Involved With Fetal Death
You deserve to grieve as much as you need to without being bombarded with bills related to your child’s death. Unfortunately, someone needs to pay the hospital bills and funeral expenses, which is why it is crucial that you make sure the person at fault is held responsible.
Though your lawsuit will demand compensation for the financial side of your child’s death, it can also help ensure that the same mistake does not happen again. If your doctor has not already learned from your tragedy, he or she will certainly be more careful the next time after being held responsible for your child’s death.
When you hire our firm, you have a chance of being compensated for:
- Medical bills
- Funeral costs
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
Common Causes Of Fetal Death
A lot can go wrong during pregnancy and delivery, which is why doctors are expected to be vigilant when it comes to the safety of you and your baby. Doctors should test you for gestational diabetes, infections and high blood pressure, all of which can be harmful to your baby.
During delivery, a baby can be infected with “group b strep” infection while passing through the birth canal. At birth, some babies are diagnosed with macrosomia, also known as “big baby syndrome.” This condition is often associated with maternal gestational diabetes and can make it difficult, if not impossible, for a child to be born vaginally. Competent doctors should always be vigilant to look for signs of these types of illnesses and conditions.
If you feel your doctor neglected to properly monitor you and your baby and ignored any of your concerns, you might have a fetal death lawsuit.
