Kansas City Birth Defect Attorney

Birth Defects Caused by Dangerous Prescription Drugs

The great joy often found at the birth of a child can be over shadowed by the pain and devastation that a preventable birth injury can bring. If your son or daughter was born with a birth defect, such as spina bifida or a cleft palate, it may have been caused by a dangerous prescription drug. Drug manufacturers do not always fully explain the risks associated with pregnant mothers taking these prescriptions.

The good news is that Peterson & Associates, P.C. is here to walk with you from start to finish. With $475+ million collected* for past injury victims, our compassionate birth defect lawyers in Kansas City are prepared to assist you.

Our team can handle cases involving some common birth defects that can potentially be linked back to dangerous drugs:

  • Cleft Lip / Palate
  • Heart Defects
  • Hearing Loss
  • Spina Bifida
  • Down Syndrome

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), babies are born with birth defects every 4.5 minutes in the United States. Typically, these defects are formed within the first trimester. If your baby was born with a defect, you are not alone. Call us today to let us help you determine what the cause of that birth defect was.
