When Should You Hire a Pennsylvania Cerebral Palsy Lawyer?

Approximately 120,000 babies are born each year with a birth defect, according to March of Dimes.A number of birth defects are tragedies that could have been prevented.  It is heartbreaking and distressing to know that some infants have suffered a birth defect caused by medical malpractice during delivery or the use of prescription medications.Cerebral Palsy is a devastating set of conditions that affect the brain and central nervous system of an infant.CP often happens when brain damage, oxygen deprivation, or head trauma occur before, during or shortly after delivery.  The cause could bemedical mistakes, such as the child being left in the birth canal for too long or the excessive or improper use of medical tools.Most children with Cerebral Palsy are born with it; however, CP may not be detected until months or, even, years later.  It can be quite difficult to determine what exactly happened and if and why things went wrong.  This is made even more challenging when the signs of a birth injury appear some time after the baby’s birth.However, there could be signs indicating that a birth injury occurred, and that it was a result of a medical malpractice.If you believe this has happened to your baby, or to someone you love, it can be a confusing and troublesome time for you or those close to you.  The answer to a question: “How could this have happened?” usually requires an exhaustive and careful evaluation of the child’s complete medical records to determine whether the condition resulted from medical negligence by a healthcare professional.This is why it’s critical that an experienced and competent birth injury lawyer reviews your case to establish whether your child’s condition, such as Cerebral Palsy, is the result of a medical error.  The special needs of a child with Cerebral Palsy affect the whole family, and cause much more than the emotional and psychological pain.  Caring for a baby or infant affected by Cerebral Palsy can bring physical and emotional challenges, not to mention financial hardships it causes many families.  The condition is associated with a lifetime of expensive therapies and costly interventions.If, unfortunately, a member of your family suffered birth defect that you believe was preventable, you should immediately consult a Pennsylvania Cerebral Palsy lawyer.If your child has received this diagnosis, you have the right to know whether it was preventable.  A Philadelphia Cerebral Palsy attorney at NOW LAW will help you get the answers you deserve.  We have helped many families through the trauma of infant brain damage, and have a record of success with Cerebral Palsy lawsuits.At NOW LAW, we will fight to obtain every dollar needed to take care of your child if he or she has been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy caused by a birth injury.While hiring a Pennsylvania Cerebral Palsy lawyer and filing a claim is not going to heal the condition, it can make many things easier to cope and live with.  If you believe that medical mistakes caused your child to suffer from Cerebral Palsy, you should seek a free review of your case to determine whether you have a claim worth filing.Our trusted Pennsylvania Cerebral Palsy attorneys have repeatedly secured million dollar and multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements for their clients.Contact NOW LAW Pennsylvania Cerebral Palsy attorney office today, and let our experienced, knowledgeable and trustworthy lawyers help you.  Call us at:  1-888-699-7097.Or, visit: http://nowllp.com/cerebral-palsy/
