Maternal & Infant Death Lawyers in North Carolina

Providing Compassionate Guidance & Dedicated Representation

The death of a newborn child or his/her mother is a tragedy beyond compare. What was supposed to be one of the happiest moments of your life has turned into a devastating situation—one that has likely left you with an immense amount of grief and uncertainty. Sadly, maternal and infant deaths occur far too often in the United States. Even worse, many of these instances are the result of preventable birth injuries and general medical negligence and malpractice.

At Lanier Law Group, we believe that negligent medical professionals and facilities should be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law. If you lost your child or loved one as a result of a delivery room doctor’s mistake, a midwife’s negligent act, or any similar situation, reach out to us as soon as possible for a free and confidential consultation. Our North Carolina maternal and infant death attorneys genuinely care about you and your family. While these cases are never easy, our team is committed to fighting tirelessly for the justice and recovery you and your loved ones deserve.

For a complimentary consultation, call us at (855) 757-4204 or submit an online contact form and a representative from our firm will be in touch with you shortly.

Compensation in Wrongful Death Cases

At Lanier Law Group, we understand that no amount of financial restitution can ever make up for the loss of your loved one. The wrongful death of your child or his/her mother can leave you facing serious financial burdens that you should not have to shoulder on your own. A wrongful death lawsuit against the liable party/parties can not only bring a much-needed sense of justice but also the financial relief you need right now. A successful case can also set a precedent and help prevent similar situations from occurring again in the future.

Depending on the circumstances involved, you may be able to recover compensation for:

  • Grief, pain, suffering, and emotional distress
  • The cost of any medical treatment incurred prior to death
  • Funeral/burial costs
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of support and household services
  • Lost wages/income, including future wages/income
  • Loss of expected inheritance

In some instances, you may also be able to pursue punitive damages. These are meant to punish individuals/parties who have been egregiously negligent, leading to the death of your loved one.

How to Tell If an Infant/Maternal Death Was Caused by Negligence

All medical professionals and facilities have a duty to uphold a standard of care to their patients. This does not mean there is no room for human error, but it does mean that these parties should not make avoidable mistakes that other competent persons/parties would not have made (within reason).

Some examples of when negligence may lead to maternal or infant death include:

These are just some examples of when medical negligence can have tragic consequences. If you believe your child or loved one’s death was caused by any of these or other forms of medical malpractice, turn to our North Carolina maternal and infant death attorneys for the legal help you need.

The first step in healing is working with an attorney who can help you fight for justice. Call Lanier Law Group at (855) 757-4204 or submit an online contact form to request a free consultation.

    "20 out of 10 stars."
    There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.

    "Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members"
    I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!

    "So thankful for your expertise and professionalism"
    Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not. Mrs. Gonzalez was very helpful with helping me understand things that I was not aware of when dealing with insurance claims. I am so thankful for her expertise and professionalism.
