If your child has cerebral palsy, it may have been caused by medical malpractice. You owe it to your child and your family to see if the cause of your child's condition can be determined. If our office pursues a claim on your family's behalf, you can be assured that we will obtain all relevant medical records, review all documentation, and consult with leading medical experts to determine definitively whether a medical professional's negligence caused your child's condition.
The cost of caring for children who suffer from cerebral palsy can be financially catastrophic. You must expect significant expenses throughout your child's lifetime, because the condition will not improve over time. For most families, this is an extreme hardship and makes it even more difficult to cope for the emotional circumstances related to caring for children with cerebral palsy.
However, if your child's condition is determined to be the fault of a hospital or physician, then there should be medical malpractice insurance in place to provide financial compensation for these costs.
Proving a medical malpractice case of any sort is an involved process, and this is certainly true when pursuing a claim on behalf of a child with cerebral palsy. It may take an attorney hundreds of hours to gather all of the documentation, make a determination, and file the appropriate claim on your child's behalf. You need someone who is very well versed in the complicated laws that govern these actions.
A study indicated that injured parties represented by legal counsel obtain far greater recoveries than those individuals who attempt to represent their own interests. Once we gather the necessary data, and determined the extent of the injury, we will know the best way to proceed and the range of value of your claim.
Making a cerebral palsy legal claim is a substantial emotional investment. At the same time, insurance companies will vigorously fight against paying damages to an injured victim -- especially in birth injury cases. Our firm is here to represent your interest in these proceedings and to counsel you as you undergo a long and sometimes draining legal process. We will do everything possible to ensure your family's emotional well being during the pursuit of a claim.
If your child or grandchild has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy that you believe may have been caused by a doctor or hospital's mistake, talk with a lawyer experienced in cerebral palsy law. Submit a simple, free and confidential legal consultation form today.
