Medical Malpractice Claims for Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral palsy is among the most devastating of birth injuries. Sometimes it is the result of birth injury negligence, although other times it is not. Cerebral palsy describes a group of disorders involving movement, learning, hearing, seeing and thinking that result from problems with brain development of a fetus or infant.
We Can Help Determine Whether Cerebral Palsy was the Result of a Medical Mistake

Not All Instances of Cerebral Palsy Are Caused by Medical Mistakes
As with all potential cases involving poor medical outcomes, we believe we owe it to our clients, the medical community, and society generally to have potential cerebral palsy medical malpractice claims reviewed in advance by highly qualified, impartial expert physicians. We ask them to tell us whether or not a devastating outcome fell below the standard of care legally required of any particular medical provider and whether that breach caused the deficits.
We take considerable pride in our ability to identify the best available experts with regard to every potential cerebral palsy claim. This is among the most important elements of a law firm's work in the medical malpractice field.
We recognize our obligation to our clients to fully evaluate claims before a lawsuit is filed. If our evaluations, including the opinions of our experts, reveal that a claim lacks merit, we explain this in detail to our clients, so they will fully understand what happened and why.
On the other hand, if we are persuaded that a poor outcome was the result of a medical provider's negligence, we will use all our expertise and resources to secure justice and compensation for our clients.
