New York City Lawyer Explains How to Find Out

Video Transcript:

Judy Maggio:

When a baby is born with a birth defect, is that always due to a mistake by medical professional? Let's ask New York City lawyer Tom Markovits for this Ask the Lawyers Quick Question.

Tom Markovits:

No. Sometimes things happen, which are not in the doctor's control. There are genetic defects, unfortunately, there are some birth defects which occur... I don't wanna say naturally, but occurred due to genetic imperfections. However, it's best to consult and to have someone get the records, have an attorney get the records and have them review because things that may look like genetic issues or just one of those things as they say, may actually be the result of some type of malpractice, so the best thing to do in a situation like that, if there's some suspicion or if it's concern or if you just don't know, Is to consult, have records obtained than have them reviewed.
