At the Michigan law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. our Flint cerebral palsy attorneys are actively pursuing lawsuits on behalf of children suffering from CP birth injuries as a result of medical negligence or error.
It is common for a parent to question, “How did this happen to my child?” when given a diagnosis of cerebral palsy. Unfortunately for many parents they are not always given an honest answer as to the cause of their child’s brain damage and other medical problems.
If you or someone you care about lives in the city of Flint and has a child diagnosed with cerebral palsy, you owe it to yourself and your family to find out the cause of your child’s condition. Unfortunately, more often than not the cause of CP is due to a medical error or medical negligence on behalf of a doctor, hospital, nurse, or other medical health care professionals and facilities.
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 Flint and surrounding areas, and may be held responsible in a suit include:
- Havenwyck Hospital, Flint, Michigan
- Select Specialty Hospital, Flint, Michigan
- McLaren Regional Medical Center, Flint, Michigan
- Hurley Medical Center, Flint, Michigan
