Have You Been Injured? We're Ready to Fight for You.

Louisville, KY Cerebral Palsy Lawyer

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 10,000 babies every year develop cerebral palsy in the United States. The United Cerebral Palsy Association estimates that approximately 800,000 Americans have cerebral palsy, and this affliction costs nearly each sufferer over $921,000 over a lifetime, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Strokes (NINDS).

Many Cases of Cerebral Palsy are Preventable

The March of Dimes estimates that approximately 0.2% to 0.3% of babies born in the U.S. suffer cerebral palsy, and many other infants endure other birth injuries, such as Erb’s palsy, brachial plexus, shoulder dystocia, hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy and meconium aspiration syndrome. Obviously, in some cases, physicians do provide best care, and these babies suffer, anyway. But negligent, careless, and even reckless caregivers can cause or exacerbate birth injury problems. It’s therefore fair to say that some potentially significant percentage of birth injuries could have been (and should have been) prevented.

How to Deal with a Birth Injury

As any new parent can attest, the days and weeks following the birth of even a healthy newborn can be overwhelming, frustrating, and exhausting. But if your child suffers from cerebral palsy or another birth injury or defect, the stress can be doubly or triply overwhelming. Proving medical malpractice or birth injury case requires meticulous investigation and preparation. The more evidence that you can collect, the easier it will be for your cerebral palsy attorney to hold liable parties to account. Some of the information you might want to collect should include:

  • The mother and the baby’s medical records
  • Records of the care given during labor, delivery, and right after birth
  • Written accounts of eyewitness testimony
  • Pictures of the birth injury

Your Louisville birth injury attorney might also engage the services of outside experts to assess the damage and to analyze the likelihood that caregiver negligence or carelessness was a potential factor.

The Strategic Legal Focus to Meet Your Need for Compensation
