California Wrongful Death Lawyer

A Child's Death through Medical Malpractice

If you have suffered the loss of a newborn, we would like to offer you our sincerest condolences. Such a loss can be devastating to you and your entire family, especially if your baby's death is caused by medical malpractice and was preventable. At Bostwick & Peterson LLP, we have been assisting families such as yours for over 60 years in fighting for justice for you and your baby.

A wrongful death can come about through lack of standard medical care if you encounter labor and delivery problems, failure to correctly interpret fetal heart tracing, not responding quickly to signs of asphyxia in your baby or neglecting to rectify complications from a premature delivery, to name a few. A compassionate but aggressive California birth injury attorney must fight for your rights if medical negligence took place.

There are many birth injuries that can result in your newborn's death if not discovered and treated immediately. Brain injuries, kernicterus and hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) can all lead to a wrongful death if negligence was present during the delivery of your child and their care afterwards.

California Birth Injury Attorney

During this very trying time, allow us to help you seek justice for you and your baby. If medical malpractice was present and played a part in your loss, you may be eligible for compensation which we can help you pursue. We have collected over $750 million in compensation for our clients and know that our experience and diligence can benefit you too.

There is a statute of limitations for filing a medical malpractice claim so we encourage you to take swift action in contacting us. A comprehensive review of the facts and evidence will have to take place and the sooner we begin the more effective we can be.

Contact a California wrongful death lawyer if you are seeking justice for the wrongful death of your baby through medical malpractice.
