Serving Families Affected by Cerebral Palsy
Among many types of medical malpractice cases we have pursued at Mathys & Schneid, we have developed a clear strength in the area of birth injury, including cerebral palsy. We approach parents dealing with a child’s lifelong disability with genuine compassion, and our Naperville cerebral palsy lawyers can also advise you as a person now of age whose legal rights were not exercised in the past.
Contact us for caring, informed legal counsel if you are:
- A parent of a child born with cerebral palsy in the past few years
- A person with cerebral palsy who has turned 18 or will soon and is now questioning whether a lawsuit should have been filed after your birth
Call the Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid at 630-848-9294 or contact us online to schedule your free consultation with an attorney. We represent clients in medical malpractice cases in Naperville, the western suburbs and other Illinois cities.
Proving Liability for Delivery Delays, Errors and Failure to React
Our law firm has recovered millions of dollars for our clients, in part through our commitment to educating ourselves on cerebral palsy cases and all other birth injury matters we handle. For example, we know that the most common cause of cerebral palsy is oxygen deprivation and that medical negligence may have included:
- An avoidable delay in delivery or choice of the wrong delivery method
- Failure to intubate promptly enough to prevent permanent fetal brain injury
Demonstrating that a violation of the relevant standard of care occurred almost always requires testimony from a credible medical expert with strong credentials. We have developed strong relationships with physicians who can help us build your case, including neonatal and high-risk pregnancy specialists.
Dedicated to Seeking Maximum Compensation for Each Client
We are also diligent and comprehensive in calculating the full economic impact of cerebral palsy on your life. We may call on life care planners and economists to project the long-term costs of dealing with specific injuries and attaining the highest possible quality of life.
Even top-notch professionals make mistakes. This includes obstetricians and other doctors. While we know the hesitation you may feel about filing a lawsuit for an “honest mistake,” we feel an obligation to put your child’s interest first – and to hold medical malpractice insurers financially accountable.
