New Jersey Birth Defect Misdiagnosis Attorneys & Failure to Diagnose Lawyers
Many types of birth defects can be diagnosed in the early stages of pregnancy through genetic testing and other means such as ultrasound imaging. This gives parents a choice about whether to go ahead with the pregnancy. But when doctors fail to perform these tests early enough or fail to properly interpret the results, it can lead to a lifetime of intensive care for a severely disabled child. In New Jersey, this can give rise to a wrongful birth case.

We know how devastating birth injuries are, and we bring our senior partners in to provide the experience necessary to give your case the greatest opportunity for success.

Some of the more common types of birth defects that can be diagnosed in the early stages of pregnancy include:
- Cerebral palsy
- Down syndrome
- Spina bifida
- Tay-Sachs disease
- Cystic fibrosis
In New Jersey, mothers can terminate a pregnancy up to 24 weeks after conception. If a medical provider fails to diagnose birth defects or failed to inform you of your right to terminate the pregnancy, you may be entitled to compensation for the significant expenses you will face in caring for your child.
