Over 8,000 children are born every year with cerebral palsy (CP). In some cases, nothing could have been done to protect these children from developing the disorder. However, there are many cases that are unfortunately due to a hospital not providing the quality of care necessary to ensure the health of the child. In fact, 1 out of every 10 children acquire CP because of medical malpractice.

 

The most effective way of identifying if a child was indeed maltreated in the hospital is by contacting a lawyer who specializes in CP cases. These lawyers team up with doctors and other healthcare professionals to investigate if something went wrong at the hospital.

If you have any suspicions about your child’s care during labor or childbirth, it may be worth contacting a lawyer to examine the matter more carefully.

But, what is there to gain by filing a claim?

 

The financial stress of raising a child with cerebral palsy can add up to millions of dollars! Over 90% of cases are settled before trial. Settlements include compensation to cover treatment, therapy, medications, and surgeries. Consulting with a lawyer may be the single most important thing that you can do for your child.

 

After giving birth to a child with cerebral palsy, filing a claim is probably not the first thing on your mind. But ensuring that your child is cared for in the best way possible is of utmost importance.

Make the call. Today. 

 

Each state has time limitations, so it’s important to have your child’s case reviewed at the earliest possible time.

To have a successful lawsuit there must be evidence that the child’s injury was preventable. Were there things that the hospital, doctor, or nurses did or DIDN’T do which could have avoided the consequences?

 

Some common examples of birthing mishaps are:

  • Failure to perform a timely C-section
  • Improper use of forceps or other tools
  • Excessive use of vacuum extraction
  • Failure to detect and treat maternal infections
  • Failure to notice the umbilical cord wrapped around a baby’s neck
  • Failure to recognize and adequately treat seizures following delivery
  • Failure to treat jaundice in the newborn

However, there are many other possibilities as well.

There is nothing to lose by contacting a lawyer who can review your case to find out what actually happened and what can be done about it. Your lawyer will do the work of finding out what really went wrong.

 

If anything like these examples possibly happened during your childbirth experience – contact a lawyer who can review your case to find out what actually happened and what can be done about it.
