Causes of Birth Defects
There is still much research to be done when it comes to causes of birth defects. While some can be genetic in nature, doctors seem to agree that exposure to certain chemical agents called teratogens which can be found in medications at home or in the workplace. A teratogen is any agent that causes an abnormality following fetal exposure during pregnancy.
The effect of these teratogens has on the baby while in utero has much to do with type, dose, duration and time of exposure as well as how susceptible the baby is genetically. Two of the most common preventable causes of birth defects is alcohol use and smoking. Teratogens could be present in a medication prescribed by a doctor, in your water supply or you may have been exposed at your place of work.
An experienced personal injury attorney can help you determine how, why and who is accountable if a teratogen caused your child’s birth defect.
