Nine months of anticipation and hope were shattered the second that you heard that your child was stillborn. However, the love that you had your for child remains strong. Now, that the news has been broken and the funeral arrangements have been made you may be wondering what else you can do as the parent of a stillborn baby.
You Deserve to Know Why Your Child Was Stillborn
There are some unfortunate situations where doctors, nurses and hospitals do everything that they can to safely deliver a baby and the baby dies anyway. In these cases, parents may not have a legal right to make a recovery.
However, there are other stillborn babies that could have lived if a doctor, nurse, or hospital acted with reasonable care in treating the pregnant mother or unborn child. In these cases, parents may have a legal right to file a wrongful death claim.
You deserve to know why your baby died so that you can make an informed decision about whether or not to pursue a wrongful death claim. If your child died because of medical malpractice or negligence then you may have the right to file Kentucky wrongful death case and pursue damages against the person or entity that caused your baby’s death.
