Finding Financial Recovery for a Child with Cerebral Palsy

Salt Lake City Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Cerebral palsy affects dozens of children in our area every year. This disability has a number of causes, only one of which is injury at birth. Because it can have other causes—or no known cause at all—it can be difficult to know when you should suspect medical negligence. You might question whether medical malpractice played a role in your child’s cerebral palsy if:

  • Your labor or delivery was very hard and fast and you were given pitocin
  • You baby experienced fetal distress during childbirth
  • You had high blood pressure or pre-eclampsia
  • Your child had severe jaundice

Why You Need an Experienced Legal Advocate

At Rasmussen & Miner, our medical malpractice lawyers help families get the answers to questions that plague them about the cause of their child’s cerebral palsy and accompanying disability.

We work with highly credentialed medical experts from leading universities in the region to review the medical evidence and determine if appropriate care was taken of mother and child at the time of delivery and just after. We also help our client families access rehabilitation and educational experts who can give them a clear understanding of their child’s needs now and into the future in order to lead the most independent life possible.

While a diagnosis of cerebral palsy is always shocking, and can be tragic for some families, many people with cerebral palsy do grow up to live fulfilling and independent lives. Armed with the correct information, and with adequate financial resources to provide for your child’s medical and rehabilitation needs, you can face the future confident that you’ve done the best you can for your child.

At Rasmussen & Miner we can help. With more than 20 years of experience bringing medical malpractice cases to court, and a track record of results, we’re prepared to review your case and advise you on the steps you can take.
