Some cases of cerebral palsy occur naturally, but many others occur because of medical malpractice. An experienced birth injury lawyer can investigate what happened to your child, find out why your child has cerebral palsy, and, if appropriate, fight to protect your child’s legal and financial recovery.

How a Cerebral Palsy Lawyer Can Help You

Once your child exhibits symptoms or has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, a birth injury lawyer can:

  • Gather evidence. Medical records, test results, witness statements, and other evidence from your pregnancy, labor, and delivery may explain why your child has cerebral palsy.
  • Advise you of your legal options. You understandably want to know if you have a case that is worth pursuing. We will let you know if you could have a birth injury case, how a birth injury case works, and what your child may recover so that you can make an informed decision about whether to bring a birth injury lawsuit.
  • Fight for your child’s recovery. In Kentucky, you have one year to file a birth injury lawsuit.

We will prepare your child’s case for trial, and we won’t hesitate to go to trial if that’s what it takes to protect your child’s future.
