Failure to advise parents of genetic abnormalities


Our client's first child tragically died 20 weeks into the pregnancy because of cardiac abnormalities, but our client was not advised of the risk to future children of the same genetic defect occurring.

Her fourth pregnancy was unscreened and her daughter was born suffering the same serious genetic defect. She has profound difficulties including restricted mobility, learning and communication. Our medical negligence solicitors achieved compensation of over £2 million, including the costs of her future care.
