Birth Defects Attorney

It can be difficult for parents to understand the causes of why their baby was born with birth defects.  These questions may be difficult for anyone to answer.  Although the causes of many birth defects are unknown, many studies have found links between birth defects and certain medications and chemicals.  These studies have brought parents into courtrooms asking for answers.

Common birth defects

Cleft Palate

Club Foot

Fusion of fingers, toes or limbs
