Michigan Cerebral Palsy Lawsuits
In the event that your child’s cerebral palsy was due to the medical negligence or error of a doctor or medical professional, you may be able to file a lawsuit and obtain a settlement to compensate for you your child. This often includes significant funds necessary to care for the child throughout their lifetime. Parents are eligible for settlement compensation in these lawsuits as well.
At the Michigan law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. our cerebral palsy attorneys have significant experience when it comes to filing a birth injury lawsuit on behalf of an injured baby and their parents. We will get all of the medical records and fetal monitoring strips and have them reviewed by the country’s top medical experts. If we determine that a medical mistake caused your child’s cerebral palsy, we will file your lawsuit to win you the best possible settlement.
Medical professionals are required to recognize changing conditions in the fetus and mother during pregnancy, labor, delivery, and immediately after birth. Many times, the doctors and nurses delay in taking prompt action to prevent harm to your baby. Other times, they fail to provide important treatment immediately after the child is born, especially in the event of jaundice. These types of mistakes cause permanent damage to your child and makes raising your child increasingly more difficult for you.
Can I File A Michigan Cerebral Palsy Lawsuit?
Some of the most common causes of cerebral palsy that may give rise to filing a Michigan medical malpractice lawsuit include the failure to:
- Order specific tests during pregnancy; and not interpreting these tests correctly
- Perform a cesarean section in the presence of fetal distress
- Deliver the infant when the membranes have been ruptured for more than 24 hours
- Monitor the fetus, or to respond to signs of fetal distress
- Act quickly when the water breaks, there was unexpected bleeding, labor failed to progress, or maternal blood pressure rose suddenly.
Other possible forms of negligence in which a cerebral palsy lawsuit may be filed include the administration of too much Pitocin, failing to refer the mother to a specialist when problems arose during the pregnancy, and neglecting to have a pediatrician present at delivery during a high-risk pregnancy.
