The New Birth Injury Justice Center
The Birth Injury Justice Center is the first step for families who want to take control of their child’s future. The site has been updated to better help families make informed care choices for children affected by cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy and other birth injuries.
With our new site, concerned families can learn the facts behind the most common birth injuries and how to treat or manage them. Further, families can learn how to file a birth injury or cerebral palsy lawsuit. By pursuing a lawsuit, they can earn financial compensation to pay for their child’s treatments and other expenses.
A birth injury can change a whole family—but it should not ruin them. Families impacted by birth injuries should have the opportunity to get the medical and financial help they deserve.
The Birth Injury Justice Center has been helping families for nearly two decades and will continue to do so for years to come.
The Birth Injury Justice Center was originally established as ChildBirthInjuries.com in 2003 to help families struggling to find answers after a birth injury diagnosis. Our team built a database of common symptoms, statistics and resources to help families understand the most common birth injuries.
Since that time, the site has become a hub for key information about birth injuries, cerebral palsy and Erb’s palsy.
Between our medical experts and legal advocates, families can get help to pay for their child’s treatments and justice for medical malpractice.
How We Can Help
When parents first learn or suspect their child has suffered a serious birth injury, they may have dozens of questions. Though the injuries happen at birth, it can be months or years before parents realize that their child has been affected.
No matter when birth injuries are diagnosed, they always catch parents off guard—especially when the injury stems from medical negligence. In addition to the shock of a diagnosis, the costs of follow-up medical care can destroy a family’s finances.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, medical costs are:
- 10 times more when a child has cerebral palsy (when compared to a normal child)
- 26 times higher when a child has cerebral palsy and an intellectual disability
Adding to these problems are the diverse ways that birth injuries can impact a child. Severe birth injuries affect different parts of the brain. Even though two children may have cerebral palsy, their symptoms could be radically different. This makes certain brain injuries harder to diagnose and effectively treat.
Sadly, these issues are not new—they have persisted for decades. The most severe conditions, like cerebral palsy, have no cure. Children diagnosed may need special care for their entire lives.
