Baltimore, MD -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/05/2016 -- Having a baby can be one of the most rewarding moments of one's life, highlighted by happiness in welcoming a new member of the family into the world. However, there are many health risks that can occur during pregnancy and childbirth, which can create a negative outcome. The cerebral palsy law firm, Gershon, Willoughby, Getz & Smith, LLC, has handled birth injury cases involving medical malpractice. Some of the cases they are handling entail fetal death in utero – when the baby dies while still in the womb. The law firm is currently devising effective legal approaches for obtaining the best possible outcome in the fetal death in utero cases.
Also known as a "stillbirth", fetal death in utero can sometimes be the result of a medical mistake such as failure to diagnose or negligence. In one case being handled by the team of attorneys, the mother came to the hospital to have her baby monitored only for the fetus to pass away. Stillbirths can sometimes be prevented as long as the doctor provides treatment that abides by the medical standard of care. In situations where the doctor failed to control a pregnancy risk factor, the circumstance becomes grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit.
Parents who feel that their child may have been a victim of medical malpractice can seek advice from a cerebral palsy injury lawyer in Baltimore, MD of the law firm. The lawyer will determine if the facts warrant a case and if it is found to be so, he or she will provide the best legal strategy for gaining the financial assistance needed to accommodate the tragedy. In Baltimore, MD, the cerebral palsy law firm will make a claim and fight for the rights of their clients when dealing with a stillbirth caused by medical error.
