The jurisdiction for your case would be Texas. The lawmakers in Austin passed a great deal of anti-patient tort reform in 2003. Some of these "reforms" were actually approved in a vote by the voters. One little provisional of the tort reform says that it cannot be a wrongful death case if a delivery is mishandled and the baby is not born alive. In other words, an OB-Gyn can't have a wrongful death case filed against them if the baby is born dead. It is a hypocritical law because Texas recognizes a baby is a "person" following conception in capital murder cases.
Patients have very few rights in Texas these days.
Did JPS prescribe the medication to your wife? It sounds as thought there may be a claim -- although a difficult one-- but I'm not sure that JPS is the appropriate defendant. You should gather togeter your wife's medical records and take them to a medical malpractice attorney for a review of your case.
