Cleveland Maternal Death Lawyer

Seeking Justice for Maternal Wrongful Death

With today’s medical advancements and accessibility to healthcare, one would think that the loss of a mother’s life during pregnancy or childbirth simply doesn’t happen anymore. This is far from the truth. In fact, the United States has the worst maternal death rate in the developed world. According to a study published in January 2017 in The Lancet, the U.S. had a maternal death rate of 26.4 per 100,000 live births in 2015. This was significantly higher than other developed countries, which had rates ranging from 3.8 (Finland) to 9.2 (U.K.).

Why are maternal death rates in the United States so high? Medical malpractice is one cause to consider. While there are certainly situations where even the most competent doctor could not prevent the loss of a mother during childbirth, there are others where negligence and outright carelessness are to blame. Any failure of a doctor, nurse, or other medical professional to provide standard care could be the root cause of a mother’s death, and an experienced attorney can investigate to determine what occurred.

Find out how Cleveland maternal wrongful death attorney John A. Lancione can help your family seek justice after such a loss. Call (440) 220-4439 for a free and private consultation.
