Common cases

Wrongful death cases involving children before, during or shortly after childbirth happen for many different reasons. Some of the most common causes of wrongful death we handle involving infants include:

  • Misdiagnosis of fatal medical condition
  • Delay of diagnosis of fatal medical condition
  • Delay of treatment, especially during delivery process
  • Oxygen supply to fetus cut off during pregnancy or delivery

How a birth injury lawyer can help

Wrongful death cases involving infants who die before, during or shortly after the delivery process can be very difficult. And one of the main reasons why has to do with the fact that many doctors, nurses and other medical professionals often refuse to admit doing anything wrong. Instead, they will likely claim your child’s death was an accident or due to an unavoidable medical condition.
