When a parent hears their child has received a cerebral palsy diagnosis, the first question that crosses their mind is how did this happen to my child. The cause of cerebral palsy is brain injury or brain malformation that occurs while the brain is developing — before, during, or after birth. Every case of cerebral palsy is unique to the individual. This is due in part by the type of injury and the timing of the injury to the developing brain. However, the cause is not always determined in every instance. The more the parent knows about the circumstances surrounding the child’s condition, the more helpful the information can be.

Me and my attorneys are experienced Chicago Cerebral Palsy attorneys and are ready to guide you through the necessary steps to recover for your Childs injuries. If your child has suffered injuries as the result of medical malpractice in Chicago or the Suburbs you may be entitled to thousands of dollars for your injuries and long term care. At the Law Office of Dan Newlin, we have proudly recovered over 200 Million Dollars for injury and accident victims and we will fight for you!!!

Determining the type of brain damage is the first step to an answer. Next, gather information on the cause of the brain damage. There are four types of brain damage that cause cerebral palsy: (1) damage to the white matter tissue in the brain, (2) brain malfunction or abnormal brain development, (3) lack of oxygen to the brain or Asphyxia and (4) brain hemorrhage. After receiving medical information from the child’s primary care physician, radiologist, neurologist or pediatric radiologist, parents may wish to pursue a medical legal review to uncover more details about the circumstances surrounding their child’s condition.

There are many benefits to knowing the cause of the child’s diagnoses. A family may receive peace of mind, healthcare practitioners can better treat and prevent the condition, and family planning decisions may be impacted. Also, knowing the cause may also suggest that your child is the victim of medical malpractice and you and your family may be entitled to bring a legal claim against the Chicago doctor or other health care provider responsible for causing the injury to your child.

Cerebral palsy and other birth injuries can result from complications during prenatal care, labor, delivery, or newborn care. The most serious injuries can be caused by oxygen deprivation to the infant’s brain. The failure to perform a cesarean section, abuse of Pitocin, misuse of forceps or vacuum during delivery, or miscalculation of the size of your baby can all contribute to serious brain injuries to the baby. Sadly, most of these problems can be prevented, since most birth injuries are caused by a doctor or other health care provider failing to timely address problems during labor and delivery.

The experienced Chicago medical malpractice attorneys at The Law Offices of Attorney Dan Newlin have many years of experience representing patients and their families who have been injured or have died as the result of medical malpractice involving birth injuries. We have helped our clients successfully recover monetary damages for a litany of birth injuries including claims involving:

Our experienced team of attorneys have a combined 100 years’ worth of legal experience, preparing and presenting complicated injury cases on behalf of accident victims.  Our Attorneys work closely with medical experts, such as doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists and therapists throughout the legal process and can help you to understand the full medical scope of the injury. We conduct exhaustive investigations, and we retain the most qualified experts to bring a comprehensive level of expertise to surpass that on the other side. If necessary, we also retain expert accountants and financial analysts because many medical malpractice cases have their own set of associated losses including lost wages, the cost of care and many other monetary costs.
