Our birth injury attorneys handle cases involving medical mistakes causing cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy can be caused due to medical errors and negligence before and during the birth of a baby. Cerebral palsy can also be caused by as genetic condition, problems with the blood supply to the brain before birth, infections, bleeding in the brain, lack of oxygen, severe jaundice, and head injury. The brain damage caused by this condition is permanent.
Parents of a child diagnosed with cerebral palsy rarely ever get a true explanation from the doctor or hospital as to what caused that condition in their child. If the condition was due to a medical mistake or medical negligence, the doctors often tell the parents that it was simply a natural act or it was unavoidable due to complications with delivery.
When a parent of a child with cerebral palsy contacts our office to find out the real answers, our birth injury team reviews all of the pre-natal records and the complete set of medical records relating to the birth of the child. We also consult with highly-credentialed nationally renowned medical experts to evaluate the records and give us their expert medical opinion.
When our investigation determines that a medical mistake was a cause of the cerebral palsy, we prepare and file a lawsuit for the child and parents. This lawsuit is called a medical malpractice lawsuit. The damages in these cases are significant and they seek damages and compensation to pay the lifelong costs and medical expenses associated with raising and educating this special needs child.
