Did Medical Malpractice Cause Your Child’s Cerebral Palsy?

The Cerebral Palsy Family Lawyers at Janet, Janet & Suggs, LLC have helped over 30,000 families nationwide. We call upon our legal and medical expertise to uncover the truth and recover compensation families deserve.

Many things can go wrong during the labor and delivery process. Your baby could have sustained a birth injury if he/she:

  • Needed to be resuscitated
  • Had an abnormal head ultrasound, CT-scan, or MRI after birth
  • Developed seizures during the first few days of life, or
  • Required an extended hospital stay after birth

What’s at Stake?

Often, tens of millions of dollars are at stake. The cost of future care for your child may alone reach tens of millions of dollars. Your child’s lost future earnings may run into millions of dollars. Compensation is also available for your child’s physical pain, mental anguish and the disabilities your child will have to live with for a lifetime. However, these cases are not simply about the amount of money recovered. They are more about ensuring the best quality of life for your child and your entire family’s peace of mind.
