Lansing Cerebral Palsy AttorneysAt the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. our Lansing cerebral palsy attorneys help children suffering from CP caused by a medical mistake or error.  If you or someone you care about is in the Lansing area and has a child diagnosed with cerebral palsy, you owe it to yourself to find out the cause of your child’s condition.

Not only is this a difficult time for you and your family, but unfortunately more times than not, the doctors and hospitals do not always provide parents with the real reason that caused their child’s brain damage and other medical problems.

Our Lansing cerebral palsy lawyers will thoroughly investigate the claim so that you may get some real answers to the true cause of your child’s birth injury.  If it is determined your child was injured prior to birth, during labor and delivery, or after birth due to a medical mistake, it can give rise to a cerebral palsy lawsuit against the negligent doctor, hospital, nurse, or other medical health care professionals and facilities.

Parents of children who suffer from CP from medical malpractice can often file a cerebral palsy lawsuit and be entitled to receive compensation for both 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 of that give rise to filing a 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 Lansing and surrounding areas, and may be held responsible in a birth injury lawsuit include:

  • Ingham Regional Medical Center, Lansing, Michigan
  • Ingham Regional Orthopedic Hospital, Lansing, Michigan
  • Sparrow Health System, Lansing, Michigan
