Our approach is direct, focused, and driven by a genuine commitment to our clients’ well-being and rights.

What Is a Wrongful Birth Claim?

A wrongful birth claim is a type of lawsuit that parents can file if they believe that a doctor or medical professional’s negligence led to the birth of a child with serious medical problems or disabilities. This claim usually arises when the parents are not informed about the risk of their child being born with a condition, such as Down syndrome, or when medical professionals fail to diagnose or properly advise on genetic or congenital issues during pregnancy.

Imagine expecting a baby and going through all the recommended tests and screenings. You trust your doctor to let you know if there are any problems so you can make informed decisions about your pregnancy. But what if your doctor misses something important, like Down syndrome, and doesn’t tell you? As a result, your child is born with this condition that you were not prepared for, creating a potential wrongful birth claim.

In a wrongful birth claim, parents argue that if they had received proper information about the risk of Down syndrome, they would have made different choices. These choices could include:

  • Preparing themselves better for the child’s special needs, 
  • Seeking special treatments during pregnancy, or 
  • Deciding not to continue the pregnancy.

The parents seek compensation for the additional medical costs, emotional distress, and other challenges they face due to the doctor’s negligence. It’s important to understand that a wrongful birth claim is not about saying the child should not have been born but rather about holding medical professionals accountable for their failure to provide crucial information that could have significantly impacted the parents’s decisions and preparations.
