Representing Parents of Children Born With Cystic Fibrosis
Children born with cystic fibrosis (CF) typically live a severely compromised lifestyle and pass away before the age of 20. This devastating and fatal pulmonary disease is inherited and can be detected in early stages of pregnancy. If prenatal tests show that the fetus has inherited the genes and will be born with cystic fibrosis, the parents have the option to terminate the pregnancy.
Nagel Rice, LLP, obtained $2.3 Million in a wrongful birth case involving negligent genetic testing. Click here to review more wrongful birth/wrongful life verdicts and settlements.
If your child was born with cystic fibrosis and you were not informed that your child would be born with the disease, you may have a wrongful birth case. Contact Nagel Rice in New Jersey at 973-618-0400.
Failure to Diagnose Cystic Fibrosis
When a genetic disease like cystic fibrosis, Tay-Sachs disease or familial dysautonomia is missed due to a doctor’s negligence or a laboratory mistake, it is important to hold the appropriate party responsible for your family’s suffering.
Cystic fibrosis causes life-threatening lung infections, difficulty breathing, digestive problems and, ultimately, death. At Nagel Rice, we will aggressively pursue compensation for you and your child. We try cases, and we produce results. Our attorneys are known for their leadership in cutting edge litigation.
