Is Cerebral Palsy An Illness Or Injury Under Illinois Or Wisconsin Law?

Cerebral palsy is the loss or impairment of motor functions that can be caused by injury to the brain - sometimes due to surgeon malpractice. Medical malpractice law can be used to seek the compensation needed to pay for the long-term care and assistance of cerebral palsy sufferers. However, the condition does not always reflect medical negligence, so families need to retain experienced legal advice before undergoing a complex process to file a medical malpractice claim or lawsuit.

How Do I Know If My Infant's Injuries Were Caused By Medical Malpractice?

Childbirth is generally seen as one of the most natural processes on earth, but that does not mean it is risk-free. When an infant sustains injuries at birth, the fault may lie with nature, the mother or errors made by healthcare providers before or during the birth. Determining the true causes of injury involves detailed investigations conducted by attorneys who understand the medical malpractice laws in your state and who have a network of resources and a wealth of knowledge in the medical science and processes associated with birth injuries.

Are Medical Errors More Prevalent In Inpatient Or Outpatient Settings?

Major surgery and other significant treatments often require patients to check in to the hospital. However, with the growth of outpatient surgical centers and some treatments now available at a doctor's office, you have more choices. Your doctor should explain the risks of each alternative, but you also need to do your own homework to help identify the safest alternative.
