Representing Parents of Children Born With Tay-Sachs
Tay-Sachs disease is a fatal genetic disorder typically found in the Ashkenazi Jewish population. Babies born with Tay-Sachs disease become blind, deaf, unable to swallow, and may suffer from seizures and dementia. Parents are now screening for Tay-Sachs early on, in order to avoid having a child who will suffer needlessly and die at a young age.
Nagel Rice, LLP, obtained $3.1 Million in a wrongful birth case involving failure to diagnose Tay-Sachs. Click here to review more wrongful birth/wrongful life verdicts and settlements.
If your child was born with Tay-Sachs disease, you may have a wrongful birth case. Contact Nagel Rice in New Jersey at 973-618-0400 if you believe your child’s genetic condition should have been discovered prior to birth.
