Representing Parents in Washington, D.C., and Maryland
When you select a physician for your obstetric care, you will expect that your doctor will take every necessary step to ensure your baby’s health and safety during gestation and delivery. If your physician does not provide adequate care during your pregnancy or labor, serious injuries can arise, causing long-term disabilities, such as cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy is one of the most serious injuries related to medical malpractice cases involving childbirth, and it may be grounds for a lawsuit against your physician or members of the hospital staff. If you have a child who suffers from cerebral palsy, Sandra Robinson can provide the representation and litigation you need to seek financial compensation for injuries sustained by your infant. While no amount of money can reverse the emotional trauma and developmental disabilities caused by cerebral palsy, compensation can help you cover the added medical expenses of raising a child with this devastating condition.
What Is Cerebral Palsy?
Cerebral palsy describes a number of neurological disorders which can be caused by a lack of oxygen reaching an infant’s brain during or shortly after birth. While cerebral palsy is not progressive and will not worsen over time, it is generally a highly disabling condition, associated with difficulties in movement, muscle coordination, and physical development.
