What Constitutes a Wrongful Pregnancy Claim?

Failed Sterilization Procedures:

This includes tubal ligation or vasectomy procedures that were performed incorrectly, leading to an unintended pregnancy.

Contraceptive Failures:

This can involve defective contraceptive devices or improper administration of birth control methods.

Negligent Medical Advice:

If a healthcare provider fails to properly inform or advise a patient about the risks and effectiveness of contraceptive methods, they may be held liable for wrongful pregnancy.

Potential Damages in a Wrongful Pregnancy Case

Victims of wrongful pregnancy may be entitled to various forms of compensation, including:

Medical Expenses:

Costs associated with the failed procedure, prenatal care, and childbirth.

Pain and Suffering: Emotional distress and mental anguish resulting from the unplanned pregnancy.
