Does Arizona recognize the Wrongful Death Cases of a Fetus?

In short, yes as a state Arizona recognizes the right to file a lawsuit for the wrongful death of a fetus, even in situations such as a miscarriage after car accident having reviewed the law in 1985. The state had previously said parents couldn’t maintain an action for the wrongful death of a viable fetus. It was revised after the Arizona High Court represented a case called Summerfield vs. Superior Court Maricopa Cty that first involved the Summerfield parents suing a Doctor for medical malpractice before that case was thrown out in favor of a wrongful death case.

By recognizing a fetus as a living being, as a state Arizona became the 33rd state in the US to recognize that a lawsuit for wrongful death could be maintained on behalf of a fetus, including cases involving a miscarriage after car accident. While all 50 states have since passed laws recognizing certain individual’s right to maintain an action for wrongful death, in instances where parents lose an unborn child, the courts across the United States differ as to whether the parents can maintain a wrongful death lawsuit for the unborn fetus.

Whilst the majority of states allow an action for the wrongful death of a fetus, they vary as to the question of whether the fetus had to be viable in order for the action to be maintained. 

Some states hold that the fetus must have been moving in the womb before the miscarriage, while others recognize the right regardless of fetal viability. In states that don’t recognize an action for the wrongful death of a fetus, such actions as intentional or negligent infliction of emotional trauma on the mother and father may be recognized as alternative legal means to pursue compensation for harms suffered as the consequence of the miscarriage.

Filing A Case On Behalf Of Your Unborn Child 

Science has shown that the fetus is not as reliant on its mother for the whole pregnancy period as people previously thought, but that at some point, a miscarriage after car accident can happen. Losing a child before you even had the chance to get to spend time with them can be devastating. The physical and emotional trauma from the loss can be difficult and when your unborn child’s loss was due to another party’s negligence, the situation can become even more challenging to bear.

Understanding the law, and fighting for justice and compensation can be complicated and frustrating during a time when you should be focused on healing. Contacting an experienced attorney can help as they know the law and can help ensure that your rights are protected. You don’t have to go through the difficult process of seeking a legal remedy for the death of your unborn child alone, especially if it was due to a miscarriage after car accident.

I was in an accident that resulted in getting whiplash and a concussion. I contacted Phoenix Accident and Injury Law Firm that day. Everyone was helpful (Rhea, Karissa, and Jeff) from the very beginning to the very end. They sent me to a physical therapy location that was pretty far away but the doctor and physical therapist were very kind so I did make the trek. They handled all aspects of my case in a timely manner and answered all my questions. They got the max amount possible, and from that, paid the medical bills and took their fair cut. I would not hesitate to recommend them to family or friends.

I would give ten stars if I could. This law firm is about as professional and friendly as it gets!! They stayed in constant contact with me and answered every question I had. I got a settlement that was higher than I expected and will definitely use this law firm again. I highly recommend hiring them to handle your legal issues!!

Thank you Thompson Law Firm for everything you did for me!!!

These guys were absolutely amazing. They were very clear with me about what I needed to do on my end and I saw fast results. I just recommended them to a friend a week ago and he also dealt with my mother's case. I wouldn't see anyone else.
