Wrongful Death of Mother During Childbirth

Causes of Mother's Death During Childbirth/Pregnancy

Mother's Death due to Medical Negligence

The contributions a mother makes to a household are too numerous to mention. When a mother dies during childbirth due to medical negligence, surviving family members may seek compensation for medical bills, lost earnings, loss of companionship, loss of household services, funeral expenses and other elements.

Birth injuries suffered by the mother that can lead to wrongful death include:

  • Stroke
  • Heart attack
  • Uterine rupture
  • Eclampsia
  • Excessive bleeding

Our lawyers have extensive experience handling birth injury lawsuits and are adept at establishing causation and liability in wrongful death cases. We understand the no legal action can ever replace what you have lost, but we will do everything we can to help you obtain fair and just financial compensation in your time of loss.
