Legal Representation For Parents Who Experience Loss Of A Fetus

Surgeon talks about death about woman patient | medical malpractice lawyer | Gash & Associates, P.C.

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:

  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Preeclampsia
  • Infection
  • Rh disease
  • Advanced maternal age

In a fetus, the risk of death increases when one or more of the following conditions are present:

  • Infection
  • 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.
