Seeking Compensation for Children With Serious Birth Injuries
If your child has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy (CP), it is important to look at all of your options for getting the financial support he or she needs. If your child's condition was caused by medical malpractice during delivery, you may have a legal claim for money damages.
At the law firm of Furr & Henshaw, we offer the services of some of the most experienced cerebral palsy attorneys serving South Carolina. For more than 40 years, our firm has helped malpractice victims hold negligent medical providers accountable.
Identifying the Causes of Your Child's Condition
Cerebral palsy is a serious medical condition with long-term consequences. While the causes of CP cannot always be identified, in some cases, it can be traced back to oxygen deprivation, also known as hypoxia, during labor and delivery. This may be the result of negligence on the part of medical staff, including the following:
- Failure to properly monitor fetal heart tones
- Failure to respond to dangerous heart tone patterns
- Failure to promptly convert to a cesarean section
Our attorneys work closely with a team of medical experts to evaluate fetal monitoring scripts, blood samples and other evidence in order to determine whether a child suffered a birth trauma that can be identified as a cause of his or her cerebral palsy.
