New Hampshire Infant Wrongful Death Attorneys

Fighting for Justice & Recovery for Families throughout the State

Sadly, many instances of medical malpractice or negligence lead to death. When this is the case, the death is considered “wrongful,” and the responsible parties can be held legally liable. If your child or the mother of your child died during labor or delivery as a result of medical negligence, our firm can help.

At Abramson, Brown & Dugan, we understand that no amount of financial compensation can ever make up for the loss you have experienced. However, it can help with the cost of medical bills and treatment, lost income, and funeral costs. Legal action can also be taken to recover punitive damages—those intended to punish the negligent parties and ensure that they do not make the same mistakes or negligent actions again in the future.

Our New Hampshire infant wrongful death attorneys can handle every aspect of your case so that you can focus on healing. Call us at (603) 323-4622 or contact us online to request a free consultation.

Determining Negligence in Wrongful Death Cases

While not all infant deaths are due to negligence, medical mistakes can and do lead to many infant deaths each year. Because newborns are so fragile, even small errors can have devastating consequences.

In order to show that a child’s death was caused by medical malpractice, one must first establish that medical negligence occurred. There are many, many examples of how a doctor, nurse, hospital, or other healthcare professional or facility can act negligently. Generally speaking, whenever the reasonable standard of care is not met, negligence has occurred.

Some common examples of negligent birth injuries that can lead to wrongful death include:

This list is not exhaustive. There are many other examples of how negligence can lead to wrongful infant death. Our New Hampshire birth injury lawyers can help you understand your legal options based on the unique circumstances of your case.

Wrongful Death of Expectant Mothers

Infants are not the only victims of wrongful death as a result of medical malpractice. Sadly, there are countless instances in which negligence leads to the death of the mother.

Examples include:

  • Antepartum hemorrhaging (bleeding during pregnancy)
  • Hemorrhaging during labor or delivery
  • Failure to diagnose an ectopic pregnancy
  • Internal bleeding or organ failure
  • Placenta previa, leading to severe bleeding
  • Uterine rupture during pregnancy or labor
  • Failure to diagnose eclampsia, caused by high blood pressure
  • C-section errors or failure to order an emergency C-section
