Our Southfield cerebral palsy attorneys at the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. are currently accepting cases for infants and children diagnosed with cerebral palsy caused by medical negligence.
Medical mistakes or errors on behalf of a doctor, hospital, nurse or other medical health care professionals are not always admitted and unfortunately, can be the main cause of why a child has brain damage or other medical problems. If you or someone you care about in the Southfield, Michigan area has a child diagnosed with cerebral palsy, you owe it to yourself to find out if your child’s condition was due to a medical mistake.
At the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, our experienced CP attorneys will investigate your claim and collect all medical records to determine the real cause of your child’s injury. If it is determined that your child was injured prior to birth, during labor and delivery, or after birth due to a medical mistake, we will file a cerebral palsy lawsuit on behalf of you and your child’s behalf.
Both the child and the parents may be able to collect compensation for these types of lawsuits. 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:

- 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
