Cerebral Palsy Lawyer
Nationwide Representation in Medical Malpractice Claims
Cerebral palsy is one of the most serious birth injuries that a baby may sustain during the labor and delivery process. Caused by an
injury to the brain, cerebral palsy is a non-progressive and currently incurable medical condition characterized by difficulty with motor coordination. In addition to being associated with muscle use and coordination, cerebral palsy may cause seizures and a degree of
mental retardation or
developmental delays. There are several different forms of cerebral palsy, ranging from very mild to severe.
If your child is experiencing difficulty with motor coordination or any form of developmental delay, a serious birth injury may be to blame. A cerebral palsy attorney at the Law Offices of Dr. Bruce G. Fagel & Associates can examine your case and determine if some form of
medical malpractice or negligence occurred and if you can take legal action against the responsible doctor or hospital through a medical malpractice lawsuit.
Your child may be facing a lifetime of medical care and extensive treatment. By working with a lawyer and recovering financial compensation for your child’s injuries, you can get the money necessary to provide for your child’s needs for the rest of his or her life.
How Cerebral Palsy is Linked to Medical Malpractice or Negligence
Cerebral palsy most often occurs in infants who are born prematurely or have suffered trauma during delivery. A doctor’s failure to perform a C-section in a reasonable amount of time, failure to properly observe the fetal monitor during labor or delivery, or improper treatment of a premature infant may all be potential grounds for a medical malpractice or negligence claim involving cerebral palsy.
