Medical Malpractice and Cerebral Palsy
While cerebral palsy can be the result of natural causes, the tragic reality is that a majority of cerebral palsy cases could have been prevented had proper care or caution been taken by another party. One of the largest groups of people at fault for causing cerebral palsy is medical practitioners. Unfortunately, all too often a child’s cerebral palsy is the result of a medical professional who failed to give proper care to a mother or child before, during, or after a child’s birth.
A medical professional, whether doctor, nurse, or other practitioner, who causes a child to suffer from the effects of cerebral palsy should be held responsible for their actions or decisions. The cerebral palsy birth injury attorneys of The Driscoll Firm work diligently for our clients when they have been wronged by a medical professional, and we want to go to work for you if your child has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy.
