An experienced Charlotte medical malpractice lawyer can help you prepare for your new future and make sure you get the compensation you deserve, whether the negligent actions leading to your child’s condition occurred during pregnancy or childbirth. At Elam & Elam Law Firm, we are ready to help you today.
In many cases, cerebral palsy and Erb’s palsy can be prevented. It is the job of doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals to provide a standard level of care for all patients under all circumstances. When they fail to provide that standard of care, people can suffer life-altering injuries.
Many birth injuries come from a failure to appreciate fetal distress. Doctors and nurses monitor the health of a fetus throughout pregnancy and childbirth in order to make sure dangerous accidents are avoided. By noticing distress in time, they can take proper action and prevent children from developing syndromes such as Erb’s palsy and cerebral palsy. Failure to perform a timely C-section can also lead to dangerous birth injuries. Erb’s palsy often involves a fetus that is too big for the birth canal.
If your child has been born with cerebral palsy, their degree of dysfunction can range from near normal to severe impairment. They may nay need a lifetime of assistance in order to properly address the issues they face, such as losing the use of an arm. Whatever the exact issues facing your child, we will take the time to make sure your family gets the long-term care you need.
