Southfield Maternal Death Lawyers
We Have the Experience & the Resources to Fight for You Nationwide
Doctors, nurses, and midwives are required and expected to provide an acceptable standard of care to their patients during the entire birthing process. Unfortunately, sometimes, a medical provider’s negligence results in a maternal death, leaving behind a brokenhearted family and a child that will never know his or her mother.
The team at Fieger Law understands your heartbreak. We understand that maternal death is a life-altering event for the family left behind—the father, partner, siblings, grandparents and of course, the baby. That’s why our team will dig deep to investigate the root cause and discover if any negligence was involved to get you the justice you are entitled to.
Money will never replace the love and warmth of a wife and mother, but that’s not the point. Death is often accompanied by exorbitant costs and a great deal of pain and suffering. Grieving families should be allowed to heal without the stress of financial hardship or provision—that’s what maternal death claims seek to rectify.
The Causes of Maternal Death
In today’s world of technological advancements in medical and hospital procedures, the rate of maternal death has been greatly reduced—yet, tragically, it still happens. According to the World Health Organization, every day approximately 830 women die from preventable causes that occur before, during, or after childbirth.
The causes of maternal death include:
- Uterine rupture
- Hemorrhage from labor, delivery or C-section
- Seizures from untreated preeclampsia
- HELLP syndrome (hemolysis or breakdown of red blood cells, elevated liver enzymes and low platelet count)
- Pulmonary embolism
- Failure to treat gestational diabetes
- Cardiac arrest
- Surgical malpractice
- Hospital infections
- Prescription drug errors
- Anesthesia errors
- Complications not properly diagnosed and addressed in time
