Finding out that your child has brain damage is traumatic, but learning that it was caused by mistakes made by your doctor and medical professionals during delivery is devastating. Your child may face a lifetime of mental and emotional difficulties and medical problems. You may spend the rest of your life needing to care for your child instead of being able to raise a person who can grow, learn and live independently. The financial burden put upon you will be difficult; the physical and emotional impact may be even greater.
Making Them "Put Their Money Where Their Mouth Is"
Doctors claim they give us the best care possible. However they frequently make mistakes and then blame the outcome on "unforeseeable circumstances" instead of taking responsibility for their actions. You shouldn't have to shoulder the burden for their failure. Our attorneys will aggressively pursue justice for you and your child and work to recover the compensation you deserve in order to give your child a good quality of life.
Tacoma Attorneys Handling Birth Malpractice Cases
Cerebral palsy is one of the most common results of birth injuries that were caused by medical malpractice. Because it isn't fully understood, it is easy for doctors to claim that your baby's cerebral palsy was not preventable when, in fact, it was. Our Seattle-based attorneys know how to identify brain damage from birth injuries that was actually caused by medical negligence. They have access to medical experts who can not only prove the connection but also show how the damage was caused by deviation from standard practices. Some of the mistakes that can result in cerebral palsy or other forms of brain damage are:
- Improperly performed c-section
- Failure to monitor fetal heart rate
- Failure to monitor oxygenation status
- Elevated bilirubin levels
