Was Your Child Diagnosed With Cerebral Palsy?

Cerebral Palsy Lawyers in Minnesota

What Is Cerebral Palsy?

Caused by brain damage or abnormal brain development, cerebral palsy is a term used to describe a group of movement disorders that occur in infancy or early childhood. Cerebral palsy causes problems with muscle coordination, posture, balance, and muscle tone. There is currently no cure for cerebral palsy, and its effects are permanent. Various types of therapies and medication, however, may help with symptom management, communication, and movement.

If your child has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, you may be facing a far different future than you originally anticipated. Our Minnesota birth injury attorneys are here to help make that future more stable for you and your child. At Janet, Janet & Suggs, we have considerable experience with cerebral palsy cases. Attorney Howard Janet, managing principal here at the firm, has consulted over 20,000 families specifically on cerebral palsy cases. He is recognized as a leading cerebral palsy attorney in the U.S. and has over 35 years of legal experience. We have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts for victims of birth injuries across the country.

You deserve honesty and compassion at this crucial juncture. Call our firm at (651) 243-2972 for answers to your questions and information that applies to your unique situation.

Linking Cerebral Palsy to Malpractice

There are approximately 10,000 new cerebral palsy cases in the United States each year. Cerebral palsy may occur even if an obstetrician, nurse, or medical facility provides acceptable medical care to mother and baby during delivery. It may simply be out of their hands. In other cases, however, cerebral palsy and other serious birth injuries can be definitively linked to negligence or wrongdoing of some kind.

In linking cerebral palsy to obstetrical malpractice, we will need to prove:

  • Your doctor or medical facility owed you a duty of care to provide medical care based on today’s accepted standards;
  • Your doctor or other medical professional violated this duty of care;
  • This violation caused your child’s condition; and
  • Your child’s condition has had and will have economic and non-economic consequences (medical expenses, ongoing care, emotional trauma, etc.).

As Minnesota cerebral palsy lawyers, we know what to look for in mismanaged deliveries, delayed C-sections, and other situations that can leave a newborn with brain damage that leads to cerebral palsy. We believe in exposing malpractice to hold at-fault doctors and facilities responsible for their actions. Because there is a two-year statute of limitations on birth injury claims in Minnesota, we recommend that you call our offices as soon as possible.

From offices in St. Paul and Minneapolis, we represent clients across Minnesota. Call (651) 243-2972 for your free consultation.
