Common Questions About Cerebral Palsy & How We Handle Their Injury Suits

As a law firm that handles cerebral palsy cases in Baltimore, MD, and across the U.S., we have received plenty of questions from clients about the core of our cases. Today, we’ve decided to pick out three of the most common CP-related questions we’ve heard and answer them through our lens as experienced doctors and lawyers.

What makes cerebral palsy a medical malpractice case?

What defines a situation as being a potential medical malpractice case is the appearance of negligence on the part of doctors, nurses, or other medical professionals. When it comes to cerebral palsy cases particularly, medical negligence is sadly common. While you’ll need to speak directly with one of our team members about your specific situation, we can provide a simplified breakdown of what CP cases are genuinely victims of medical negligence. The most generalized definition of medical malpractice in the situation of cerebral palsy is that more adequate medical treatment before or during labor could have prevented CP from developing.

What’s the purpose of a cerebral palsy medical malpractice case?

Cerebral palsy is a permanent, non-progressive condition that will impact every aspect of a patient’s entire life. Taking care of someone with cerebral palsy can cost up to millions of dollars throughout a lifetime, which is an enormous amount of money for the average family. This high price is where legal assistance comes in. Our team will help ensure to the best of our ability that your case is heard and successful.
