New Hampshire Prenatal Testing Negligence Attorneys
Though pregnancy can be an uncertain time for parents, prenatal testing can provide critical information regarding an infant’s health and development. Unfortunately, when healthcare professionals are negligent during any stage of prenatal testing, critical information may be missed and could lead to the injury of the baby, mother, or both. The New Hampshire testing negligence attorneys of Crowe & Mulvey, LLP, understand how troubling birth injuries can be, and we do everything that we can to fight on behalf of those injured.
What Prenatal Screening Tests Can Identify
There are two basic types of prenatal tests: screening tests and diagnostic tests. Prenatal screening tests aim to identify the likelihood of certain conditions though they do not provide a definite diagnosis. Additionally, diagnostic tests are usually conducted when the screening test reveals a potential health complication. Diagnostic tests are comprehensive and provide a more definitive diagnosis. Among the prenatal screening tests that are suggested for all pregnant women are:
- Gestational Diabetes
- Down Syndrome
Since prenatal testing provides parents with critical resources regarding their baby’s health, it is important the practitioners take extra care to ensure that all screenings and tests are conducted thoroughly. When the healthcare professionals responsible for providing or interpreting prenatal tests are negligent in any manner, they may be made to provide financial restitution to the affected family.
