The wrongful death of a mother in New Haven during childbirth is a devastating turn of events that can leave families with grief, financial hardship, and lingering questions. If you have lost a family member to a fatal maternal birth injury, please contact Jacobs & Jacobs to assess your case.
Your loss can leave family members with not only emotional grief, but financial hardship as well. In representing families that have lost women due to birth injuries, we work to assess the full extent of financial loss the family will suffer due to the wrongful death.
Our attorneys fight fiercely to ensure you receive fair compensation for the loss you suffered due to medical malpractice. We work with medical specialists to help us calculate damages, assess your claim, and prepare your case for trial. Our experienced attorneys carefully evaluate the dynamics of your situation to determine the damages that can be pursued from a negligent medical provider or their insurance company.
The statute of limitations for a wrongful death claim lawsuit in New Haven is two years. If you fail to file within the two-year period, you forfeit your right to file a wrongful death suit and recover financial compensation accordingly. If you choose to initiate a lawsuit, Connecticut law states that wrongful death compensation may include:
Our personal injury attorney works diligently to uncover the facts of the situation and win you the fair compensation you deserve. We begin by establishing the appropriate medical standard of care that ought to have been used during childbirth. Our law firm works with qualified medical experts to determine a proper standard of care.
We then painstakingly review the evidence to determine whether the medical facility or doctor adhered to the standard of care. What the doctor or medical team did during the labor and delivery process is compared to what a similarly-skilled and responsible medical expert would have done. From there, we consider whether the doctor’s deviation from the standard of care resulted in harm to the mother. Our medical malpractice attorney then calculates the damages suffered as a result of the facility or doctor’s negligence.
