I appreciate your inquiry and offer my condolences for your loss. First and foremost, you need to take care of yourself and get the best medical attention that you can find. Then, you need the guidance of a lawyer who is familiar with such matters. My firm and I regularly handle such injury cases and I would be happy to help you with this claim. There are several ways you may be compensated for your loss but keep in mind that you may have only a limited time to file an action, and even less time if you intend to file against a public entity. So you need to act soon.

Thank you for your inquiry; and I am sorry to have learned of your loss. There are many factors which might indicate that labor was indeed progressing, warranting admission to potentially halt the premature labor, or, if a patient actually is in "false labor" and can be discharged. This firm has handled many cases surrounding issues of unnecessary premature birth resulting in injury to the child or their passing. Please call me or one of my partners at Blume Goldfaden to discuss your potential claim; (973)635-5400. We will assist you in whatever way we can.
