We help those who have been harmed by negligence relating to sterilization procedures. Failure to Detect and Inform parents of birth defects.

A wrongful birth can also happen when a physician fails to detect or fails to inform the mother that her fetus has Downs Syndrome, Syndrome 13, a rare chromosomal disorder, or another serious abnormality. This type of medical malpractice deprives the mother of important information she needs to decide whether or not to continue the pregnancy. She may believe she is carrying a healthy child, and only learns the truth when it is too late to end the pregnancy.
