Whether you have an acute condition or a chronic illness, prescription drugs may play a significant part in your treatment. Without them, your symptoms may be unmanageable and your physical health may deteriorate.

Of course, prescription drugs typically have side effects, and a decision about whether to use the drugs is made by weighing the consequences of not using the drugs against the possible side effects if you do use the drug. If you are pregnant, then the decision about whether to take prescription drugs is a whole lot harder.

How Prescriptions Drugs Can Cause Birth Injuries

Prescription drugs can cross the placenta and cause injury to your child. If your child has suffered an injury for one of the following reasons, your family may be entitled to damages:
  • You were not informed of the potential risks of a drug and would've made a different decision about taking the drug had you known the risks;
  • Your child suffered an injury because your doctor negligently prescribed you a drug that is not safe during pregnancy; or
  • Your child suffered an injury because your doctor failed to appropriately monitor you, or your child, while you were on the drug.

Contact a New York birth injury attorney if your child has been hurt.
