West Palm Beach Cerebral Palsy Lawyer
If your child’s cerebral palsy was caused by a doctor’s negligence, you have the right to seek damages on your child’s behalf. Let the Law Offices of Casey D. Shomo help you fight for fair compensation.
Do you believe your child’s cerebral palsy was caused by a birth injury? Do you believe the injury could have been prevented but was somehow caused by your child’s doctor? Contacting a West Palm Beach cerebral palsy lawyer right away is an important first step in seeking compensation for a birth injury caused by medical negligence.
With compensation, your child can receive the medical care he or she requires. You can also gain a sense of justice from knowing that the doctor responsible for your child’s injury is being held accountable for providing substandard care.
Cerebral Palsy Caused by Birth Injuries
Cerebral palsy can be caused by brain damage, which can result from injuries during birth, such as a lack of oxygen to the brain or trauma either in utero or shortly after the birth. It may be difficult for you to be sure of what caused your child’s cerebral palsy, which is why speaking with a cerebral palsy attorney in West Palm Beach is important.
Documenting and gathering evidence to determine whether your doctor’s negligence caused your child’s injury is important in establishing the validity of your claim for compensation. The following are a few examples of how your physician could have caused injuries to your child that led to cerebral palsy:
- Misreading signs of fetal distress
- Using dangerous medical procedures to deliver your child
- Delaying your C-section or failing to quickly address labor and delivery complications
- Failing to treat seizures
- Leaving the infant in the birth canal for too long
How Will Compensation Help You and Your Child?
There are several reasons for seeking compensation for your child’s cerebral palsy. You will need the financial resources to care for your child, pay for medical costs, and provide your child with a good life.

- Pain and suffering you and your child have endured
