Virginia Cerebral Palsy Injury Lawyer

Cerebral palsy is a combination of neurological disorders that impact muscle coordination and the way the body moves. It is caused by damage and abnormalities in brains that are still developing.

Medical Mistakes and Cerebral Palsy

Serious birth injuries can occur when ineffective policies, inadequate training and improper use of equipment can impact the delivery process. This kind of medical malpractice often leads to lifelong injuries to a child. Common birth injury negligence that leads to cerebral palsy includes:

  • Untreated meningitis, sepsis and other infections in the mother
  • Prolapsed umbilical cords that prevent blood and oxygen from reaching the baby
  • Failure to properly monitor fetal heart rate that leads to oxygen deprivation
  • Failure to perform a cesarean section when necessary
  • Improper use of birthing tools

Compensation for Victims

No amount of money can make up for the negligence that caused your child’s cerebral palsy. Still, a financial award can make the lives of your baby and your family more comfortable. The settlement amount depends largely upon the severity of the injury, and every case is different. Cerebral palsy claims frequently include compensation for:

  • Medical costs, including surgical procedures, prescription drugs, doctor’s appointments, and physical therapy sessions
  • Lost wages for parents who must forgo their career to provide full-time care for their infant
  • Long-term care for the child
  • Pain and suffering
