Inadequate Prenatal Screening
Were You the Victim of Inadequate Prenatal Screening?
As an expectant mother, you want only the best for your future child. You make careful choices about the foods you eat, get plenty of rest, and attend your medical appointments regularly. This should be all it takes to ensure that your child is born healthy and happy. Unfortunately, however, a negligent healthcare provider can compromise the health of your pregnancy, no matter how careful you are.
Prenatal screening is a key function of obstetric care. These tests can detect early problems with your baby’s health and help you make informed decisions about your pregnancy. In some cases, failure to diagnose an early problem can cause more significant injuries or even birth defects.
When you select an obstetric healthcare provider, you are putting your trust in that practice to care for your family during a very important time. You have the right to trust that your provider is giving you and your family the best possible care. But sadly, this isn’t always the case.
If your baby has suffered birth defects, congenital problems, or other issues related to inadequate prenatal screening, you do not have to suffer in silence. An experienced attorney can help you understand your options.
In many cases, inadequate screening may constitute medical malpractice. If this is the case, negligent healthcare providers can be held accountable for the mistreatment you suffered. This may include financial compensation for healthcare bills, emotional damages, and other injuries suffered.
A financial settlement cannot truly make up for the tragedy of inadequate prenatal care. But it can go a long way towards holding negligent providers accountable, and it can be a big help if you’re facing mounting medical bills.
