Cerebral palsy is a brain injury that can occur prior to birth, during labor and delivery, or shortly after birth. Unfortunately, doctors and hospitals do not always provide the parents with the real reasons that cause their child’s brain damage and other medical problems. When a baby is injured due to a medical mistake, it can give rise to a cerebral palsy lawsuit against a doctor, hospital, nurse, or other medical health care professionals and facilities. These lawsuits are filed on behalf of the child, however parents may also be entitled to receive compensation. The right attorney will ensure that the compensation you collect includes lifetime medical benefits, housing, and educational benefits for the child which will secure their future.
If you or someone you care about in the Sterling Heights 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. You may be entitled to compensation that can help secure your child’s future.

- 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
