In Utero Medical Malpractice Injuries

Learning that an infant has one or more developmental problems while in utero is unsettling, to say the least. Parents are faced with an array of considerations, questions, and treatment choices with the hope of finding viable options that result in having a healthy baby.

Fortunately, advances in science and medicine have provided treatment options for infants prior to birth for a number of medical conditions. These include heart, brain, and lung problems, among many others, and even conditions affecting twin pregnancies.1 Numerous potential treatments are available, from blood transfusions to surgery and beyond.2

Like all medical procedures, however, in utero treatment must be carefully planned and administered. Improper diagnosis or treatment can lead to in utero medical malpractice injuries. When in utero medical malpractice injuries occur, infants and parents become victims of additional trauma that can result in life-altering difficulties for parents and lifelong disabilities for a child.

Parents whose newborns are affected by medical malpractice injuries often seek expert legal help. In provable medical malpractice negligence cases involving in utero medical malpractice injuries, fair compensation is a crucial element in a legal settlement. Long-term costs and cost increases for required items, medications, and specialty services must be considered and effectively calculated into a settlement.
