11/4/2010Parents suffer when their children are hurt, but perhaps never more so than when their child is hurt in a preventable accident. Cerebral palsy is a serious, incurable medical condition that is sometimes caused by the negligence of the doctor attending the child’s birth.

If you believe that your doctor caused your child’s cerebral palsy, then there are specific steps that you need to take to protect your child’s potential rights to recovery.
- First, remember that your doctor is not going to admit making a medical error. Cerebral palsy, your doctor will argue, was caused by other factors.
- Next, request a full copy of all of the medical records related to your pregnancy, labor, delivery, and your child. Provide copies of those records to your Atlanta birth injury lawyer.
- Finally, talk to your Atlanta birth injury attorney about your legal options.
We understand that no amount of money will undo what has happened to your child and to your family. However, money will help your child access the doctors, nurses, and therapists that can improve his or her life. This monetary compensation should help your family financially support the child and make a difference in your lives.
