Attorney Sims Recovers Compensation for Expenses and Loss of Companionship
The loss of a baby is one of the most tragic situations that an individual may ever have to deal with, and the tragedy is made more difficult to deal with if the death was a result of medical negligence from the medical professional who was trusted to provide competent medical advice and assistance. If you have suffered this great loss, please accept our sincere condolences.
When the physician treating a woman during labor and birth neglects to provide the same degree of treatment and care that would typically be provided under the same circumstances by his peers with the same training and knowledge, and his actions (or inaction) result in death of the infant, the situation may be considered medical malpractice and a wrongful death civil action may be filed for compensatory damages.
Failure to diagnose life-threatening situations and follow up with appropriate treatments can also be considered medical malpractice/wrongful death of an infant.
