I receive calls and emails all the time from parents, grandparents and other child care providers who have children that were injured or have serious life changing injures at the time of their births. The first question that has to be asked is if the injury could have been prevented. A birth injury can often be the result of improper care provided by your doctor or hospital during childbirth. Birth injuries, such as cerebral palsy and Erb’s palsy, can be devastating and present physical, emotional, and financial challenges for a family. When looking at a possible legal claim for a birth injury the lifetime care costs associated with a child’s injury have to be considered along with all the other costs of raising a child with a birth injury.
Understandably, you want to know what went wrong and if it could have been prevented. While nothing can make up for the heartache and grief you’ve suffered, we may be able to help you get the support you need. In many cases, Cerebral Palsy, Erb’s Palsy, and other conditions are caused by medical negligence at the time of birth.
