Birth Injury Legal Claims – The Basics
Unfortunately, development of cerebral palsy is almost always preventable. Too often, children are diagnosed with cerebral palsy as the result of a medical misstep. Whether there was a diagnostic error, medication mistake, or unnecessarily traumatic birth experience that led to your child’s diagnosis, it is important to hold those accountable for this turn of events responsible for their actions for several reasons. First, your child deserves to have justice served. Second, coming forward may help to ensure that other children are protected from the kinds of missteps that led to your child’s diagnosis. Finally, your child has already needed expensive medical treatment and will continue to require medical assistance and specialized services to live their life fully. You shouldn’t be saddled with a cent of those costs.
When you speak with our firm, we’ll explain the process of filing a personal injury lawsuit. We’ll explain how insurance coverage only goes so far and how even seemingly generous initial offers from insurance providers and medical providers are unlikely to cover the lifetime of costs that will be incurred as a result of your child’s diagnosis. The choice to file legal action or not will always be up to you. We simply want to ensure that you know enough about the legal process to make an informed decision about your options.
