Our birth injury attorneys fight for cerebral palsy victims
Cerebral palsy, one of the most common of all congenital disorders, is often caused by injuries to the central nervous system before or during birth. If your baby is suffering from cerebral palsy, you need to speak to a lawyer about your legal options.
There are many reasons why - before, during and after birth - that can contribute to the onset of cerebral palsy, including:
- Before delivery: infection, stroke, diabetes and hyperthyroidism
- During delivery: lack of oxygen reaching the fetus
- After delivery: stroke or infection
The cost of doing even the simplest things in life can increase dramatically when someone suffers from cerebral palsy or another life-altering birth injury. That's why we vigorously seek full compensation for long-term medical care, as well as compensation for current medical expenses and other damages. Your family's best interests come first here.
Why do birth injuries happen?
Birth injuries happen for many different reasons. In many cases, birth injuries occur due to mistakes made by medical professionals before, during or soon after the birth of a child. When this happens, it's our job to hold medical professionals responsible for their actions.
Doctors, surgeons or other medical workers responsible for caring for you or your child sometimes fail to follow the necessary procedures or protocols, resulting in your child's injury. In these cases, we can build a medical malpractice case on behalf of your family.
Some law firms avoid these challenging legal cases but we thrive on them. That's because we know how important your child's birth injury is to you. As your lawyer, you can count on us to find the facts that matter to build the strongest possible legal case. We frequently consult with medical experts in these cases. We know how to negotiate with doctors, hospitals and insurance companies. If they refuse to cooperate, we will be prepared to take them to court on your behalf.
