Having a baby is one of the most important experiences in an adult's life. Having a baby injured at birth can be one of the most devastating experiences in a parent's life.

We bring medical malpractice claims against those responsible for the cost of medical care and other damages related to the trauma, for the rest of your child's life, if necessary.

Cerebral Palsy Is ...
Cerebral palsy is a neurological (brain) disorder affecting body control and body movement. Damage to the brain's motor areas makes a person unable to control posture or movement. Our law firm has returned a significant number of sizable settlements and awards for clients who have suffered birth injuries.
Cerebral Palsy Causes
In babies, lack of oxygen during the birthing process is a key cause for cerebral palsy. However, cerebral palsy does not only result from medical mistakes or negligence. It can be caused due to a birth defect or a genetic inheritance. As a result of his medical experience as a practicing physician, our lead attorney has an unusual depth of understanding of medical issues and the considerable ability to investigate, absorb, analyze and build strong cases.
Our cerebral palsy cases often involve situations like:
- Hypoxic Ischemic Brain Damage or HIE
- Hypoglycemia in a newborn
- Anoxic Encephalopathy - lack of oxygen getting to the fetal brain
- Labor and delivery problems
- Unattended fetal distress
- Inattentive monitoring of a pregnancy resulting in Erb's palsy or shoulder dystocia with brain damage
