The Causes And Challenges Of Maternal Death

Maternal death refers to the death of a woman while giving birth. Some professionals also refer to maternal death as the death of a mother up to one year postpartum. Maternal death during childbirth can occur for various reasons. In medical malpractice cases, some of the most common factors include:

  • Hemorrhage
  • Infections
  • Preeclampsia and eclampsia
  • Anesthesia complications
  • Delayed or incorrect diagnosis
  • Surgical errors

Proving medical malpractice in cases of birth injuries or maternal death is immensely complex. Health care facilities and their insurers fight these cases tooth and nail, as they often involve very high damages and can bring negative publicity. This is why you need a skilled medical malpractice attorney by your side. Our team will gather evidence, consult medical professionals and build a strong case to seek justice for your loss.

The Impact Of A Maternal Death Medical Malpractice Claim

No amount of legal action can bring back a loved one. However, a medical negligence wrongful death claim can provide a sense of closure following a catastrophic loss. It can also offer financial compensation for:

  • Lost wages from making medical visits or hospital stays
  • The victim’s loss of earning potential
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Medical bills
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship and consortium

Recovering compensation can mean a future of financial stability for your child. Moreover, holding the responsible parties accountable helps prevent similar incidents in the future. It is a step toward ensuring better care for others.
