Prenatal Misdiagnosis

Prenatal Misdiagnosis

Filing a Claim with a Birth Injury Attorney

Every child is precious and important, regardless of health issues. A healthy child is not more valuable or worthy of love than a child born with health complications. Nevertheless, it is the responsibility of overseeing doctors to help parents prepare for the birth of a child with special needs.

Do I Have a Claim?

Obstetricians are required to conduct prenatal screening—it is part of the expected standard of care. Most doctors and obstetricians are careful to run all preliminary screenings and tests necessary to ensure that parents are prepared for any genetic disorders / illnesses their child may be born with.

Examples of conditions and disorders tested for include:

  • Down syndrome
  • Spina bifida
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Fragile X syndrome
  • Thalassemia
  • Sickle cell disease

If you believe that your obstetrician failed in serving you to the expected standard of care, you should speak with a personal injury attorney in the Inland Empire who has experience in birth injury cases. Knowing about your child’s condition beforehand could have enabled you to prepare better, giving your child the best possible chance starting from birth. Our team at Bostwick & Peterson, LLP has been serving clients in California for many years, recovering over $1 billion in successful jury verdicts as well as settlements out of court.
