Misdiagnoses and Wrongful Birth Resulting From Negligently Performed Ultrasounds
Expectant parents trust their physicians and ultrasound technicians to accurately perform and interpret ultrasounds. When a doctor misreads an ultrasound, it can rob the parents of crucial decisions regarding the pregnancy. At the New Jersey law firm of Nagel Rice, LLP, we are dedicated to holding the appropriate party responsible for your family's suffering when a fetal abnormality like a congenital limb defect, hypoplastic heart, Down syndrome or spina bifida is missed due to negligence.
Nagel Rice, LLP, has obtained several multi-million dollar settlements and jury verdicts in cases involving ultrasound negligence, including a $4.2 Million settlement in a wrongful birth action involving a misread ultrasound.
