The death of a newborn baby is tragic and stunning. When that death appears to have been preventable, it is possible that medical negligence was involved. That is when we start looking at the acts or failure to act of doctors, nurses, and hospital staff.
When a newborn baby dies as a result of the negligence of a health care provider, the law of wrongful death is triggered. Parents then have the right to bring a wrongful death lawsuit and seek compensation from those who caused their child’s death. Medical bills and funeral and burial bills are going to add up quickly, and like most families, you will be both emotionally and financially overwhelmed.
