Thanks to modern medical tests and procedures, many birth defects and genetic disorders can be diagnosed before delivery, enabling parents to get help for the condition and make informed decisions about their medical options. Because the tests are so simple and the results so important, it is standard procedure for obstetricians to conduct prenatal screening tests for every pregnant patient. When physicians don't follow these standards, the results can be tragic. The Law Offices of Michael J. Weiss has successfully represented many clients in prenatal misdiagnosis cases.
Birth defects and genetic disorders cause physical, emotional, and financial hardship for parents, affected children, and family members. Affected infants may need a lifetime of expensive medical care and therapy. Many of these conditions can be identified early enough in pregnancy for parents to decide whether or not to continue the pregnancy. In New Jersey and Pennsylvania, parents can make a wrongful birth claim if a birth defect or genetic disorder is not discovered due to a healthcare provider's negligence. It is important for parents to protect their rights and those of their affected child, so that they have the financial ability to provide adequate care for their child in cases of prenatal misdiagnosis or associated medical malpractice.
