It is unlikely that an earlier scan would have prevented the problem. The hospital didn't cause the baby's death and therefore there would be no case to sue. Even if you had had an earlier scan and a problem had been found, there isn't usually much that can be done at this stage.
If you had a postmortem or any other tests it would be important to know the results before you fall pregnant again.
