Wrongful death of a mother during pregnancy

Injury Lawyers in Los Angeles California

Bringing a child into the world is supposed to be a joyous occasion. And while this is typically the case, there are times when things go wrong.

Unfortunately, it’s not out of the question that a mother could pass away during pregnancy or labor. Taking this one step further, this tragedy often comes about as the result of medical malpractice.

If you find yourself dealing with this situation, it’s important to learn more about your legal rights. As a spouse, for example, you may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit to recover damages.

In order to file a wrongful death claim, you must be able to prove the following:

— That the mother has passed away.

— That the death was caused by the negligence or misconduct of a medical professional.

— That you suffered a financial loss of some kind, as the result of the death.

In the event of a wrongful death lawsuit, you may be able to receive compensation for one or more of the following:

— Funeral expenses

— Medical expenses

— Pain and suffering

— Loss of support

— Lost wages

While uncommon, the court also has the right to award punitive damages.

It goes without saying that nobody wants to be in position to file a wrongful death lawsuit. However, if you’re in this spot, don’t hesitate to learn more about your legal rights.

At our law firm, we have helped many people file a wrongful death lawsuit and subsequently receive the compensation they deserve. In the end, this goes a long way in helping surviving family members get their life back on track.
