Losing a child due to potential medical malpractice is an indescribable heartbreak for parents, made even more difficult when healthcare providers refuse to acknowledge any wrongdoing.

If you’re facing this overwhelming situation, taking action is critical. Consulting a Michigan birth injury lawyer for legal guidance can be your most crucial step forward. Don’t hesitate—secure the support and advocacy you need today.

Speak to a Birth Injury Attorney

If your baby tragically passes away due to birth complications either during delivery or soon after, the initial step is to seek advice from a Michigan medical malpractice lawyer. Early legal intervention is vital, as hospitals and doctors have legal teams ready to defend against medical malpractice claims.

Although infant mortality is sometimes due to unforeseeable or unavoidable complications, a qualified lawyer from Fieger Law can review your case to determine if healthcare provider negligence contributed to the loss. Potential negligent actions might involve:

  • Failure to monitor the baby’s vital signs
  • Delay in performing necessary procedures to treat complications during delivery
  • Misuse of delivery tools
  • Inadequate response to fetal distress
  • Errors in medication administration

Your baby’s loss due to inadequate medical care demands justice, and we can help ensure you receive it. With compassion and determination, we can gather essential evidence to hold the healthcare provider accountable and help secure the compensation your family deserves.

Prove Negligence With Strong Evidence

Proving medical malpractice can be challenging, especially when healthcare professionals deny wrongdoing. Several elements must be established to build a strong case:

  • Duty of Care: The doctor and medical staff owed a duty of care to your baby, meaning they were responsible for providing treatment in line with accepted medical standards.
  • Breach of Duty: You must show that the provider breached this duty by failing to provide the expected standard of care during your pregnancy, delivery, or shortly after birth. This breach could involve errors in diagnosis, treatment, or monitoring.
  • Causation: There must be a direct connection between the provider’s breach of duty and the harm suffered by your baby. Establishing causation often requires expert medical testimony to demonstrate how negligence led to the tragic outcome.
  • Damages: You must present evidence demonstrating the loss suffered due to the healthcare provider’s negligence. This includes emotional pain, potential medical expenses incurred, and irreplaceable loss of life.

Start building your case today by documenting the full scope of your healthcare provider’s negligence with help from Fieger Law. We can help you assert your rights and secure the financial compensation you deserve.

File Your Claim or Lawsuit to Seek Justice for Your Child

Once we have all the evidence to show the healthcare provider was negligent, we can help you file your claim. This includes writing a detailed explanation of how your medical provider’s negligence caused your baby’s death and how it’s affected your family.

Next, we’ll negotiate with the healthcare provider’s insurance company on your behalf, aiming to get a settlement that covers the full extent of your loss. This means compensation for funeral costs, emotional pain and suffering, medical expenses, and any other related losses.

We’re ready to take them to court if the insurance company doesn’t offer a fair settlement. Fieger Law will stand up for you in legal proceedings, presenting a strong argument to ensure the healthcare provider is held accountable for their actions.

Our goal is to make sure your family gets the justice and financial support needed to deal with the loss of your child. When acting as your lawyers, we promise to provide you with supportive and professional legal help every step of the way.
