New Jersey Wrongful Birth Attorneys
Advocating for Wrongful Birth Victims and their Families in Somerset County and across New Jersey
With increasing advancements in technology, medical professionals are equipped with the necessary tools to identify and address a broad range of potential developmental issues while your child is still in the womb. The advent of these prenatal screening techniques has allowed doctors to pinpoint birth defects and to provide parents with the knowledge that they need to make informed reproductive decisions. Unfortunately, not all medical professionals fulfill their duty to ensure that parents are thoroughly educated about all of the screening procedures at their disposal. In fact, thousands of children are born each year with birth defects and serious conditions that may otherwise have been detected with the appropriate screening tests. If your child was born with one of these conditions and you were deprived of the right to determine whether or not to proceed with your pregnancy to full term, you may have grounds to bring a wrongful birth lawsuit against these negligent medical professionals.

Your New Jersey Failure to Diagnose Prenatal Birth Defects Claim
The law requires prenatal caregivers to inform parents about all of the screening procedures that they may opt to perform during pregnancy. Doctors have a responsibility to order the correct tests, interpret them correctly, and provide you with accurate results so that you can make informed decisions regarding whether or not to carry the pregnancy to full term. For example, screening tests may reveal chromosomal and anatomical birth defects including:
- Spina Bifida
- Sickle Cell Anemia
- Down Syndrome
- Tay-Sachs Disease
- Larsen syndrome
- Skeletal Dysplasia
- Pulmonary Hypoplasia
