How financial compensation helps babies born with birth defects

Two words that no Texas parent ever wants to hear are "birth defects." The power of these two simple words is devastating. They can destroy the dream of having a normal, healthy family and they can result in catastrophic financial hardships to name just two consequences.

When parents learn that their infant is suffering from birth defects or injuries, the last thing on their minds is the financial costs of these afflictions. These parents want to make their babies feel loved, cared for and as pain-free as possible. Unfortunately, accomplishing all of these goals and others often requires access to a large source of funds.

If medical malpractice played a role in your newborn's birth defects, it is wise to consider pursuing a legal solution. Doing so serves at least two very important purposes. First, a successful medical malpractice claim can provide you with enough compensation to ensure your baby receives the medical care needed to live comfortably. Second, legal action helps you hold the responsible party to account for any negligence that led to your child's condition.

It can be difficult in some cases to prove that negligence led to your baby's birth defects. However, it is not an impossible endeavor. Often, you and your lawyer can trace the defect back to a specific action on the medical provider's part.

For example, if a doctor prescribes a medication known to cause birth defects during pregnancy, the medical provider has a duty to warn the parents about this medication. Even if the medicine was absolutely necessary, failing to warn parents about any link the drug has to birth defects may represent medical malpractice.

To learn more about your legal options, please reach out to an attorney if your child suffers from preventable birth defects.
