Texas Birth Defect Attorney

Houston Based Firm Fighting for Birth Defect Victims and Families

Birth is supposed to be an event of celebration, but sometimes medical malpractice can turn anticipation into tragedy. Doctors and nurses are trained to understand the risks and benefits of prescribing medications to expectant mothers. For the weeks leading to birth to the final few hours, doctors are expected to keep mothers (and their unborn children) safe and healthy. When doctors do not abide by the expected standard of care, babies can suffer from severe birth defects. If your child suffered a birth defect and you have reason to believe that it was preventable, contact the birth defect lawyers at BCH. We have 150+ years of combined experience holding negligent people and pharmaceutical corporations accountable for the harm they cause to others.

We can thoroughly investigate your claim, back it up with expert testimony, and build a strong case to fight for compensation for you and your child. Seek the justice that you deserve—call (888) 367-7160 for a free case consultation.

Birth Defects Caused by Malpractice

When doctors prescribe you with medications, you are supposed to be clearly informed of the risks involved with taking certain or defective medications that can cause birth defects. If you were not clearly informed or your doctor wrongly prescribed you medication that harmed your child, you may be entitled to compensation.

  • If you were prescribed any of the below medications while pregnant, contact our firm:
    • Warfarin
    • Accutane
    • Lithium
    • Tetracycline
    • Anticancer drugs
