Baltimore, MD -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/20/2017 -- When a birth defect occurs, families find themselves under great financial and emotional distress. At the law firm of Gershon, Willoughby, & Getz, their birth defect lawyers serve the Baltimore area, drawing upon their professional experiences within the field of medicine. Often the result of medical malpractice, birth defects affect families in tremendous ways, leaving them desperate for legal aid. The Gershon, Willoughby, & Getz attorneys ensure that families and children see the justice they deserve. In fact, the firm is pleased to announce they're handling malpractice cases involving higher levels of bilirubin in infants.

The Gershon, Willoughby, & Getz birth injury lawyers call upon their top medical expertise to evaluate birth injuries caused by high bilirubin. As they know from their years in the industry, newborns can be born with mild jaundice as a result of bruising during delivery, viral infections, or premature births. The condition, diagnosed as a form of hyperbilirubinemia, may show itself in a yellow hueing of an infant's facial skin and a yellowing of the eyes. Infants exposed to excessive levels of bilirubin may even appear to be discolored on their chests and stomachs as well as more prone to sleep than a healthy baby would be.

In more extreme cases of malpractice, misdiagnosing or mistreating bilirubin can allow the excess of the chemical to reach an infant's brain. Gershon, Willoughby, & Getz know the condition as kernicterus and the ways in which it can exhibit itself through fevers, cries, lethargy, and seizures.

Any family that suspects it may be suffering from a case of medical malpractice can contact the Gershon, Willoughby, & Getz law firm at 877-292-6491.
