A doctor’s failure to diagnose an unborn child’s serious health condition can result in catastrophic birth defects and a lifetime of physical, emotional, and financial hardship for the child and family.
It is widely accepted today that the mother or parents should have the opportunity to make a fully informed decision on whether to carry a child to term. However, this decision will not be theirs to make if the doctor fails to diagnose a serious condition in the unborn child, or fails to discuss with the mother or parents the probability that the child will be born with a significant birth defect.
If this sounds like your situation, call us right away to discuss. Like any medical malpractice matter, these cases take time to investigate and are subject to a strict statute of limitations.
