Legal Representation For Parents Who Experience Loss Of A Fetus
Throughout a woman’s pregnancy, a doctor performs routine tests and screens to check for any abnormalities or potential problems. If any issues are detected that relate to the health, well-being and viability of either the mother or fetus, swift action must be taken with regard to proper treatment or intervention.
In cases where a mother is 20 or more weeks pregnant and loses a baby, serious questions must be asked, investigated and answered with regard to what happened and who may be at fault. At Gash & Associates, P.C., our lawyers provide compassionate representation and fierce advocacy to parents and families who have suffered the unbearable loss of an unborn child.
When A Doctor Fails To Monitor, Diagnose And Take Action
There are several maternal and fetal conditions that increase the risk of fetal trauma or demise.
In the mother, risk factors include:
- Rh disease
- Advanced maternal age
In a fetus, the risk of death increases when one or more of the following conditions are present:
- Multiple fetuses
- Congenital abnormality
- Genetic issues
- Placental abruption
If a doctor fails to diagnose or misdiagnoses any of these health conditions or concerns and a fetal death occurs, we will take swift legal action to discover these oversights and errors.
