Illinois Lawyers Representing Parents of Newborns Who Suffered a Birth Injury
Bringing a new baby into your world takes a great deal of commitment. We all want to have a healthy baby without complications during the delivery. However, birth complications do happen and when they do, you should know your legal rights. Cerebral palsy can result from an injury sustained during birth.
Cerebral palsy can arise for any number of reasons, including congenital defects, mistakes made during delivery and excessive time spent in the NICU or a similar facility. Although some children are born every year with this condition, the fact remains that medical personnel can commit errors during the early moments of a baby's life that may lead to cerebral palsy. The only way to know for sure if you may be entitled to compensation for the intentional or negligent act of another is by speaking with the team of expert attorneys at Cavanagh Law Group.
Understanding Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral Palsy is a brain injury that occurs when there is damage to the brain before, during or shortly after birth. This brain injury can cause severe problems with fine motor skills that can impact a child's ability to walk, control simple movements, balance, and ability to learn. Currently there is no cure for cerebral palsy and this is a condition that can easily cost millions over a lifetime of care.
