A mother in Southeast Texas is blaming the actions of the physician who delivered her daughter for the cerebral palsy of her two-year-old girl. According to the lawsuit filed on Thursday, September 12 at the Jefferson County District Court in Texas, plaintiff Kalyn Mary Pedigo said her daughter, Mary Kathryn, began manifesting signs of involuntary movements after she was born on July 5, 2011.
The plaintiff claimed that physicians from the Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas-Beaumont could have stopped the condition from happening if only they had properly monitored her during her delivery.
Pedigo is seeking an unspecified amount for damages, plus costs, pre- and post-judgment interest at the legal rate, and other relief the court finds applicable.
Cerebral palsy, a condition that causes involuntary movement and usually a host of disorders affecting the brain and the nervous system, can be a burden to both those who have the disorder and their family.
