Cerebral Palsy

If Your Child Has Suffered Permanent Injury Due to Doctor Error

Not every infant who suffers from cerebral palsy is a victim of medical malpractice, but if that injury and permanent disability is the result of nursing or physician error, then you may have the right to financial recovery to pay for the substantial costs your family faces for future care and treatment.

Cerebral Palsy Suffered Due to Medical Malpractice

An unborn infant requires oxygen just like everyone else, but that infant relies on the body of its mother to get that oxygen. If there are complications during the birth, whether having to do with the premature separation of the placenta (placental abruption), a ruptured uterus, a twisted umbilical cord or even failure to properly clear airways after birth, then that infant may suffer a hypoxic or anoxic injury leading to a permanent condition such as cerebral palsy.

If your child has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy (CP) or another birth injury and you suspect there may have been negligence on the part of a doctor or nurse, then our lawyers can help. Schedule a free consultation if you think you may have been the victim of medical malpractice as a result of:

  • Failure to monitor
  • Delayed or denied C-section
  • Failure to clear airways
  • Infection
  • Medication errors

Our firm is built on the foundation of providing excellent client service and results driven representation. We understand that a brain injury may not be immediately evident following delivery, but it is important to protect your right to compensation and your chance to hold negligent doctors responsible as soon as you suspect malpractice.
