Article on Cerebral Palsy

A family in Chicago was recently awarded a $14 million settlement from a birth injury that occurred back when their now 5 year old son was born in 2002. The mistake occurred when medical professionals at the hospital confused the baby's heart rate with the mother's pulse, and therefore was not properly monitoring the child. He was not breathing when he was born and due to medical staff not properly monitoring him, he was left without oxygen for 7 minutes. This resulted in cerebral palsy which left his arms and legs paralyzed. He is unable to walk or talk.

Unfortunately, incidents like this occur much too often. Although no amount of money can compensate for such a tragic event, it can help a family to provide for a child that is in need of expensive treatments and medications. If this article on cerebral palsy sounds similar to what you experienced with your child, it is important to contact a Chicago birth injury attorney. You may be entitled to compensation if the doctor was at fault for your baby's injury.
