Minnesota Wrongful Death of Unborn Child

In 1949, Minnesota was the first state to include a cause of action for the wrongful death of an unborn child. Thirty-four other states have since joined Minnesota in allowing for a suit to be filed in the wrongful death of an unborn child. Wrongful Death of an Unborn Child is not recognized by ten states, including California and New York.

In Minnesota, to bring an action for the wrongful death of an unborn child, the plaintiff’s counsel will have to:

  • prove the traditional elements of wrongful death
    • a human death occurred
    • that death was caused by the wrongful act, negligence, omission of a person or corporation
    • financial or emotional loss was suffered by the beneficiaries due to the Minnesota wrongful death
  • must show that the fetus was viable (able to live outside the womb)
