Spina Bifida Lawsuit Help – More Inside
A birth defect can be devastating for parents and other family members as well as mean a life of pain and sometimes, disability for the child. Spina bifida is a neural tube defect which affects the spine and spinal cord in utero where these two structures don’t fuse or close properly, leading to the baby being born with an outer sack in the back filled with fluid, nerves and tissue. Spina bifida is a birth injury because it can be easily diagnosed via ultrasound and doctors can make life-saving decisions such as performing intrauterine surgery in order to correct the issue. Spina bifida may lead to paralysis below the defect, and many children born with this condition may need multiple surgeries as well as face the risk of infections, seizures and other health complications for many years to come. To this end, it is vital that you get the justice and compensation your child needs so they can get the care they deserve into the future.
