There are many different birth or genetic defects a baby can have such as:
- spina bifida
- club feet
- holes in the heart
- Down's syndrome
- Sickle cell disease
If your healthcare professional fails to diagnose a birth defect which should have been easy to diagnose (perhaps due to a faulty scanning machine or lack of staff training) then you may be able to make a medical negligence claim.
In situations like this, damages often provide for the costs associated with the welfare and healthcare of the disabled child.
If you believe you have a legal claim relating to Fetal Medicin, for further information or if you believe you have suffered as a result of Medical Negligence, please contact us.
