Can You Sue a Doctor for Stillbirth? Yes, And We Can Help!
We take for granted the birth of a child, but what most people don’t realize is that 1 out of every 160 live births is a stillborn. A stillbirth refers to the birth of a child when it is already dead. Stillbirth can happen in the womb or during the birthing process, and it can be a traumatic event that can have a lasting impact on all family members, more so the mother. A stillbirth is not a fluke accident; for the most part, human negligence or failure to do something during the pregnancy or labor is what causes this traumatic event. As a result, it is important that you look to the law for answers and help regarding what you can do, and the legal avenues available to you.

Stillbirth May be Caused By Medical Malpractice
Stillbirth can be as a result of birth injury, which can take on numerous forms. A standard of care exists which physicians must adhere to to make sure that the lives of both the mother and her unborn are kept safe at all times. Things like the use of aggressive birthing tools and techniques such as vacuum pumps and forceps, leaving the baby in the birthing canal too long, not monitoring the baby’s vitals at all times, failing to realize that the birth is a high risk birth from the get-go, failure to monitor the mother’s vitals, failure to have the patient attend prenatal screenings, failure to take an extensive medical and familial history of the would-be mother, failure to treat a maternal infection can all conspire to cause a difficult delivery, which if not mitigated in a timely manner, may cause the death of the child in uteri or shortly after birth.
