Wrongful Death Before Birth

Program Number
Program Date

This presentation will review the circumstances under which an unborn fetus might assert a claim for wrongful death due to medical negligence. Not surprisingly, whether and when a fetus can legally assert a wrongful death claim differs dramatically in different states. The presentation will discuss the varying thresholds for recognizing such a claim, the legal consequences of such thresholds, and how attorneys who defend these lawsuits might approach a claim for wrongful death before birth.
