Cerebral Palsy and Medical Malpractice: How can I tell if my child’s cerebral palsy was caused by medical malpractice?
Chicago, IL medical malpractice attorney Jeffrey M. Goldberg talks about how you can know if your child’s cerebral palsy was caused by medical malpractice.
The easiest way to do that is to have someone with my experience or similar experience look at the medical records. Looking at the child doesn’t tell you anything. It doesn’t tell you how the cerebral palsy occurred or when it occurred. What you need to do is evaluate the medical records, the MRI images, the EEG, the placental pathology slides, a myriad of material and have experts in almost all of those areas look at the case and try to figure out how it happened, why it happened, when it happened and who was responsible.
