Brain/Birth Injuries • Cerebral Palsy

The Dow Firm, P.C. - lawyers handling birth injury & cerebral palsy claims

Serious brain injuries at birth can result in life-long medical conditions that affect a child and his/her parents. One such condition is cerebral palsy. There are many possible causes of cerebral palsy to include trauma and/or oxygen deprivation sustained during labor and delivery and complications in the perinatal period (such as exposure to radiation or some forms of infection). A child’s diagnosis of cerebral palsy may be a legitimate subject of a medical malpractice lawsuit if it is established that the medical practitioners (doctors or nursing staff) responsible for the mother and child failed to reasonably perform their healthcare duties in a timely and thorough fashion.

A monetary recovery in a brain-damaged baby case may be in the tens of millions (depending upon the facts of the case and the child’s life-care plan) because compensation must be sufficient to accommodate the serious losses and hardships the baby and his/her family has and will continue to endure as a result of the cerebral palsy diagnosis. It is essential to note, however, that an unfortunate outcome does not necessarily mean that a child or mother received poor medical care.

Georgia has varying statutes of limitation which have different applications to the various aspects of a medical malpractice matter where an infant or child suffers a brain injury at birth or thereafter. For that reason, if you feel that your child suffers from cerebral palsy due to a healthcare provider’s negligence, you should contact The Dow Firm, P.C. immediately to ensure that your situation is properly assessed and no legal rights are permitted to lapse.
