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.

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:
