The one concern no mother wants to deal with is having a baby born with birth defects. A baby born with such defects faces such an uphill battle with complications and health that may last their entire life.
So when our client Jennifer gave birth she was extremely distraught at the thought of her daughter being harmed in any way. Although some birth defects are linked to genetics, they can also be caused by environmental factors such as drugs and alcohol.
Jennifer spent a lot of time wondering what could have caused this and was very frustrated trying to understand if this was her fault. It was only after doing some research and reading different websites did she begin to understand that it might not have been her fault. Before giving birth and during the first trimester, Jennifer was taking a prescribed anti-depressant drug. This drug has been linked to causing birth defects such as club footing, cleft lips and palates, and even heart conditions in babies. Finally, Jennifer had figured out what had caused this hardship to her daughter and we helped her seek benefits as compensation. Jennifer’s baby is now getting healthier with each day and hitting all the developmental milestones a child with her challenges should be meeting. Watch this video now to learn more.
