Parents of children with birth injuries are sometimes concerned when contacting a birth injury attorney about filing a cerebral palsy lawsuit. They may worry about getting their doctor in trouble. Such concerns are normal. It’s only natural to reflect on whether you’re doing the right thing. When a birth injury like cerebral palsy occurs, it’s important to understand what went wrong and whether it could have been prevented. When you had a normal pregnancy and were expecting a normal delivery, it’s devastating to learn that your child was injured.

Call us today for a free consultation. It’s important to help prevent future birth injuries that may be caused by the same improper medical care.
