St. Louis Hospitals
People turn to hospitals to protect and enhance their health during times of childbirth, injury, and illness. However, hospital malpractice is unfortunately common, and it can leave patients facing a range of health complications. One of the most potentially devastating aspects of an unsafe hospital is an environment that allows for doctor negligence during labor and delivery. Innocent babies that suffer oxygen deprivation or trauma during the birth process may develop lifelong disabilities, such as cerebral palsy, as a result.
After your child is diagnosed with cerebral palsy, it can be difficult to determine if the hospital or a medical practitioner was at fault. For help with determining liability in your case and seeking the compensation you may deserve, contact a St. Louis cerebral palsy attorney of The Driscoll Firm, today at (800) 305-9800.
