Calio Claims, compassionate and experienced stillbirth compensation solicitors in Glasgow, are here to guide you through the legal process and provide the support you need.
Understanding stillbirth and its causes
Stillbirth is defined as the loss of a baby after the 24th week of pregnancy. While many stillbirths occur due to natural causes, there are instances where medical negligence may have played a role in the tragedy. It is important to note that not all stillbirths are a result of negligence, but when healthcare professionals fail to provide adequate care or make critical mistakes during pregnancy, labour, or delivery, they may be held accountable.
Some of the potential causes of stillbirth include:
- Placental complications: Issues with the placenta can lead to inadequate oxygen and nutrient supply to the baby.
- Maternal infections: Certain infections contracted during pregnancy can increase the risk of stillbirth.
- Pre-existing medical conditions: Conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure can contribute to stillbirth if not properly managed.
- Umbilical cord problems: Knots in the umbilical cord or cord prolapse can disrupt blood flow to the baby.
- Medical errors or negligence: Mistakes made by healthcare professionals, such as failure to monitor the baby's well-being or delayed intervention, can result in stillbirth.
Seeking support and compensation
In addition to emotional support, pursuing a stillbirth compensation claim can help provide financial assistance for various expenses associated with the loss of a child. Compensation may cover:
- Loss of income: If you had to take time off work due to the emotional impact of the stillbirth.
- Counselling and therapy costs: The cost of seeking professional help to cope with the grief and trauma.
- Funeral expenses: Costs related to arranging a funeral or memorial service for your baby.
- Future care and support: Compensation can also account for ongoing care, therapies, and support services that may be needed.
