Baltimore Medical Malpractice Attorneys Pursue Compensation
In today’s society, women are fortunate to receive preventive prenatal care throughout their pregnancies. This care is usually supplemented by sonograms and X-rays, health checkups for both mother and baby, and the opportunity to be provided with genetic screening. If requested, a doctor may check the health of the baby and test for abnormalities such as cystic fibrosis, Tay-Sachs disease, and Down syndrome. These screenings can enable a parent to plan accordingly for their child and make decisions regarding the health of their unborn baby. If a child is born with Down syndrome without the parents having been made aware of the condition, then the situation may be a case of medical malpractice. To find out if you have a case, speak to a down syndrome lawyer from our firm. We can review your situation and collect evidence of your medical provider’s negligent care.
This form of negligence is often referred to as wrongful birth. A doctor’s negligence or laboratory’s mistakes may lead to the birth of a child with Down syndrome, and the parents may have no knowledge of the condition prior to the delivery. Chromosomal abnormalities such as Down syndrome – also known as Down syndrome or trisomy 21 – are easily detected by trained doctors and genetic laboratories. Women over the age of 35 are at a higher risk for chromosomal abnormalities in their offspring and should be tested during their pregnancy. Failure to be informed of or offered the screening by a doctor may be considered negligence as well.
