How Are Birth Defects Caused?

Many birth defects are caused by exposure to teratogens that occur during pregnancy. A recent growth in the exposure to such toxic chemicals has caused a sharp increase in birth defects. Parents, whose child was born with a birth defect, which could have been caused by certain exposure to toxic chemicals during pregnancy, may recover substantial amounts of financial compensation with the help of an experienced birth defect lawyer.

The alarming number of birth defects caused by toxic chemical exposure has increased the demand for competent birth defect attorneys, and has also led to federal funding of research into causes of birth defects from teratogen chemicals.

How Do Our Lawyers Determine If Chemicals Caused the Defect?

Lawyers at LK confirm that teratogen chemical agents that cause birth defects may be contained in medications negligently prescribed by a doctor, in chemicals used in the workplace, or toxic substances that have contaminated the air or groundwater in a community, making those in the immediate vicinity vulnerable to chemical exposure. This is why it is so important to go to an experienced and well-qualified birth defect lawyer, who with the help of medical specialists can determine the cause of the birth defect.

Why Choose Levy Konigsberg LLP?
