Picture of John Day

Stillbirth Wrongful Death Attorneys

During the nine months of pregnancy, the expectant parents spend time enthusiastically attending baby showers, decorating the nursery, attending doctor's visits, choosing baby names and making plans, big and small, for their baby and their family. The anticipation of a baby is pure joy. So when something goes wrong and the doctor delivers the news of a stillborn baby, the grief and and heartbreak is overwhelming and unspeakable. Of course, parents want to know what went wrong and why this tragedy occurred.

For more than 80 years, the medical malpractice attorneys at the Law Offices of John Day have dedicated themselves to helping parents answer these questions.

  • Negligence during the labor and delivery

  • Umbilical cord prolapse or strangulation
  • Placental complications
  • Delayed C-section
