Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy, one of the most serious birth injuries that an infant can sustain during labor and delivery, can be caused by lack of oxygen to the brain, premature delivery, infection, and head trauma – any of which could reflect negligent medical treatment that falls short of the required standard of care.  When cerebral palsy interferes with normal brain development – which can take months or even years after birth to be detected – the medical care necessary to help a cerebral palsy victim function and survive in society can cost millions of dollars. When cerebral palsy results from the negligence of a doctor, nurse or hospital, BWMK lawyers have the medical malpractice litigation skills to seek and secure the appropriate financial compensation necessary to care for the injured child.
