Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be glad to assist you in any way that I can,
I am so sorry to hear of your loss, I am a mother and I can feel your pain. The saddest part of all is that this all could have been avoided and your labor could have been stopped if the hospital personnel had taken the appropriate action, even during your second visit the following day,
The hospital personnel was not only incompetent, but they were heartless and without any compassion for your suffering and your loss. You did not say if the doctor ever made it to the hospital on either occasion, but you have a very, very strong case for medical malpractice against the hospital and against every employee that participated in your care (and, I use the term "care" very loosely). This was the epitome of negligence.
You should not only recover for your physical pain and suffering, but also for your mental, emotional, and psychological distress. And, it your baby was viable, in other words, could have survived had they taken appropriate action and given the baby appropriate care, you may have a case of wrongful death also. You should retain a lawyer with extensive experience (at least 20 years) in medical malpractice, and wrongful death actions and in litigation. Please let me know if you would like me to direct you to that class of Attorney. These cases are taken on contingency fee and it will cost you nothing out of pocket. The Attorney will be paid from any settlement, judgment, or verdict.,
You and the baby will be in my prayers, I promise you that,
