Fighting for Fair Compensation throughout West Virginia
Cerebral palsy is a brain and muscular condition that affects the body’s ability to move in a coordinated manner. This can range from general clumsiness to the complete inability to walk. When this occurs due to the negligence of a medical practitioner, the victim is entitled to compensation. When you discover that your child faces a cerebral palsy diagnosis, contact the lawyers at Katz, Kantor, Stonestreet & Buckner. Our experienced personal injury lawyers can discuss your situation during a free consultation.
When is Cerebral Palsy a Birth Injury?
Cerebral palsy can develop when the baby’s brain does not receive enough oxygen or faces other serious complications while in the womb or during the birthing process. Children born with this condition need extra care, which is oftentimes expensive. They may not be able to perform the basic functions needed to live independently. With a lifetime of medical treatment, physical therapy, and more, securing compensation from the responsible parties can help to ease the consequences of this financial burden.
Actions that may result in cerebral palsy include:
- Applying force to the head during birth
- Failure to help a mother or infant in distress
- Failure to complete a C-section
- Improper use of birthing tools
- Lack of fetal monitoring
- Wrong use of an epidural
