When a child suffers from cerebral palsy, it is important for the parents to retain legal help to determine the cause of injury. At the Michigan law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. our Farmington Hills cerebral palsy attorneys are actively pursuing lawsuits on behalf of children suffering from CP birth injuries as a result of medical negligence or error.
More often than not, the true cause of why a child has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy is due to a medical error or mistake by the doctor, surgeon, nurse, or other medical care provider or facility. Unfortunately for many parents they are not always given an honest answer when they ask, “How did this happen to my child?”
Therefore, if you or someone you care about lives in the city of Farmington Hills and has a child diagnosed with cerebral palsy, you owe it to yourself and your family to find out if your child’s brain damage and suffering was a direct result of a medical mistake.
When a baby is injured prior to birth, during labor and delivery, or after birth due to medical mistake, it can give rise to a cerebral palsy lawsuit. Parents and their children may be entitled to receive compensation for their child and themselves. Compensation typically includes lifetime medical, housing, and educational benefits for the child which will help secure their future.
Some of the most common causes that give rise to filing cerebral palsy 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.
Some of the largest community hospitals that are located in the City of Farmington Hills and surrounding areas, and may be held responsible in a suit include:
- Botsford Hospital, Farmington Hills, Michigan
- St. John Providence, Farmington Hills, Michigan
- William Beaumont Hospital, Farmington Hills, Michigan
