Death During Labor & Delivery
Lawyers Handling Death During Labor And Delivery Claims
When a mother or child dies during labor or delivery, the remaining family has the right to ask why this happened. Was the death the result of doctor negligence? Was it preventable? At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, our attorneys have been getting answers and holding negligent medical professionals accountable since 1985. We are committed to helping you understand what went wrong and to getting you full compensation for the wrongful death.
C-Sections And Complications During Childbirth
Many cases of death during labor and delivery involve cesarean sections, more commonly known as a C-section. Doctors are trained to monitor the pregnancy and spot signs of complications as early as possible. For some complications, problems can be mitigated by the doctor performing a C-section. If a doctor fails to perform a C-section when one is indicated, he or she may be guilty of OB/GYN malpractice. Similarly, if a C-section is not indicated, but it is performed nonetheless and it results in complications, the doctor should be held accountable.
These cases are tragic. Our lawyers understand that, at a time when a family should be celebrating bringing a new life into the world, they are instead faced with an unexpected loss. We know that this loss cannot ever be repaired, but we believe in the importance of getting justice. We believe that you and your family deserve compensation. We will work with leading medical experts and others as needed to build a strong case to get you results. Our services are available to people in San Bernardino and throughout California’s Inland Empire.
