Bringing in a child into the world is a joyous occasion for most parents. That happiness however, can quickly dissipate upon the discovery of a birth defect. According to a birth defects report by the Center of Disease and Control, 10% of all newborns in the U.S. suffer a type of birth defect. Furthermore, a recent article by the Chicago Tribune reported the discovery of increased birth defects in newborns who were conceived via In vitro fertilization (IVF). For children conceived through IVF, the risk for birth defects was 37% higher.
The role of physicians and doctors is perhaps the most imperative to a healthy birth. A lack of proper care and monitoring during a pregnancy and unfit fetal observation during childbirth may strongly contribute to a birth defect in a newborn. The mistakes nurses, doctors, and medical personnel make can result in severe and irreversible damage. The lawyers at The Horwitz Law Group can help.
