Cerebral palsy is a defect acquired in childbirth that may be caused by improper administration of oxygen which, among other things, leads to loss or reduction of movement control or involuntary spasms. At the Kenneth A. Wilhelm Attorney’s Office, we fight for the rights of those who were injured as a result of negligent labor. Neglect is the failure to use a degree of care that a reasonable person would use in similar circumstances.

Your child is dependent on healthcare professionals and should be compensated when they fail. In one case, the sentence for our clients was $ 23,500,000 because doctors during the delivery process did not follow the correct procedure and allowed the trainee to receive the baby. They also failed to inform their mother about a urinary tract infection they knew weeks before delivery. The child was born with mental retardation and cerebral palsy. We did everything possible to obtain the greatest possible compensation for the child’s mother and to provide the child with decent living conditions.

These painful injuries require costly treatment including surgery, long-term care, rehabilitation and medication. Children with cerebral palsy may never be independent, so proper compensation will help ensure a higher standard of living for them.

If you or someone close to you has a child with a cerebral palsy caused by reckless and careless behavior by medical personnel, you should call us as soon as possible. Reckless and careless behavior by medical personnel includes improper handling of a threatened fetus and improper administration of oxygen. In these cases, the doctor and hospital may be held liable.
