The birth of a child should be among the most joyous moments of your life
If, however, the doctor or hospital staff make mistakes that result in birth defects, including cerebral palsy, not only is that moment marred, but your life and that of your child are changed forever.
The term “cerebral palsy” describes a group of disorders affecting body movements and muscle coordination. Variations include Brachial Plexus Palsy, Klumpke’s Palsy and Erb’s Palsy. All are caused by damage to different areas of the brain before, during, or shortly following birth. The effects, depending on which areas of the brain have been damaged, include:
- Mental Retardation
- Impairment of Speech, Hearing, or Sight
- Abnormal Perception and Sensation
- Problems in Gait and Mobility
- Involuntary Movement
- Muscle Spasm or Tightness
The attorneys at the Bernard Law Group can use experts to prove if doctors were negligent in such cases
Our consultants look for deviations from the standard of care, and carefully examine the neonatal records as well as the fetal heart monitor strip. By carefully evaluating these and other factors, they can determine if the brain damage suffered by your child was unnecessary, and a consequence of poor performance by the attending medical personnel.
Financial compensation to victims can provide injured children the specialized care they need. As a parent, you’re entitled to learn what caused your child’s disability. The Bernard Law Group fights to get the answers you need, and the justice your child deserves.
We have years of experience in personal injury matters. Our skilled team will investigate the facts, assess your claim, establish which parties and insurance companies are to be held responsible, and organize all of the details of composing and presenting your case.
