New Jersey Wrongful Birth Lawyer

Wrongful Birth Lawsuits in New Jersey

Every parent wants their child to have a full and happy life. Unfortunately, some conditions can greatly compromise a child’s health and create a lifetime of challenges. Sometimes, providers may be liable for damages resulting from their failures to avoid these issues.

A wrongful birth lawsuit is a civil action that can be brought against health care providers by parents who have children born with various disabilities, birth defects, or genetic disorders.

Wrongful birth claims generally allege that providers failed to meet the standard of care when treating, testing, and informing mothers and parents and their unborn babies, and that such a failure deprived the mother / parents of information that would have been essential in making decisions not to conceive or carry the child.

A wrongful birth lawsuit may involve:

  • Failure to diagnose genetic disorders or birth defects.
  • Genetic testing errors, lab errors, and failure to accurately interpret results.
  • Failure to offer genetic counseling, order necessary tests, or inform parents of risks.
  • Failure to diagnose maternal infections or complications, resulting in birth injuries.
  • Failure to adequately perform sterilization or termination.

If your doctor did not properly diagnose a serious medical problem with a fetus during the pregnancy or failed to meet the standard of car by depriving you of the right to make an informed decision about pregnancy, you may have legal options.
