A large percentage of birth defects are caused by congenital anomalies, but some are the result of chemical exposure received during gestation. If the mother comes into contact with toxic substances, either directly through skin contact or ingesting contaminated substances, or indirectly by breathing fumes or vapors, the embryo or fetus may be damaged, leading to severe complications in the baby's physical condition after birth. When there is evidence that your child's chemical birth defects are the result of another party's negligence, an Atlanta medical malpractice lawyer from The Tolson Firm, LLC may be able to help you recover compensation.
Ms. Tolson was personally chosen by famed attorney Johnnie Cochran for the local office of his practice, and has since earned an excellent reputation, including being named among the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in Georgia. We have over 17 years of experience, and have successfully litigated dozens of multi-million dollar settlements for our clients. Call us for a consultation.
Some of the most common types of chemical birth defects include cleft lip or cleft palate, missing or underdeveloped organs, and missing or deformed limbs, as well as deformities of the spine and brain. The developing fetus is extremely sensitive to damage from outside sources, and toxic exposure during this vulnerable period can leave a child with lifelong disabilities and deformities. We will work to assemble sufficient evidence to persuade the jury that your child's suffering is the result of chemical exposure which you received unwillingly or without your knowledge. If an employer, manufacturer or other party is at fault for the condition, we will strive to secure the settlement your family deserves.
