For help investigating birth injuries, including the causes of cerebral palsy, our attorney team is only a phone call away.
When a doctor or a nurse fails to recognize fetal distress, birth injuries can result, and the consequences can be life altering. A medical team’s mistake can lead to severe brain damage, and often causes cerebral palsy. An attorney at the Mellino Robenalt, LLC, based in Cleveland Ohio, can lead you and your family through this difficult time to see if you may be able to seek compensation on behalf of your child.
The Resources to Effectively Evaluate Your Ohio Cerebral Palsy Case
Medical negligence is not always one of the causes of cerebral palsy. With our experience and our resources, we are able to fully investigate your case. We will thoroughly examine your child’s birth injuries to figure out the causes of the cerebral palsy. If your child’s cerebral palsy was caused by the negligence of a doctor or other medical professional, we will work to pursue the maximum compensation for your child.
As with any other brain injury, it is important to consider the long-term care needs of a child with cerebral palsy. Although there is some variation depending upon the severity of any individual case, the child will likely need lifelong care and treatment. When a child’s injuries are caused by doctor negligence, parents should not have to shoulder the burdens alone.
Cerebral Palsy Attorneys Committed to Protecting Victims of Negligence
When we handle medical malpractice claims related to child birth injuries, we have many goals. We want to make sure that the family has the financial resources to maximize the child’s ability to function in the world — including access to any medical treatments or care available. There are numerous therapies and types of medical equipment that will help your child function with his or her cerebral palsy. Our attorney team will identify those resources and assemble a Life Care Plan to accommodate your child’s needs.
At the same time, we work to seek accountability from negligent medical professionals. When handling medical malpractice claims, we strive to create institutional changes to make sure that other Ohio families don’t have to deal with the devastating consequences associated with cerebral palsy.
