Baton Rouge Lawyer Representing Cerebral Palsy Victims

While in most cases, cerebral palsy develops in the womb, in some cases, children can be affected by the disease for life because of a brain injury during the birthing process. In some of these cases, doctors missed warning signs and failed to take action that could lessen the chance of children developing the condition.

When doctors, gynecologists and other health care professionals fail to live up to their obligations to you during the birth of your child, the law provides you with options. I am Vincent J. DeSalvo, a medical malpractice attorney in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and I can help you pursue compensation that you will need for your child's ongoing care when he or she is suffering from avoidable cerebral palsy.

I am a compassionate, yet aggressive advocate for my clients. Contact me for a free consultation and learn how I can handle your complex legal issues.

The Experience You Need to Prove a Difficult Claim

Like other malpractice and birth injury claims, proving a doctor's negligence caused your child's cerebral palsy can be quite difficult. As your lawyer, I will conduct a thorough investigation with the help of medical experts, who can determine if warning signs were missed.

If doctors ignored warning signs or failed to take action — such as performing an emergency C-section — to make your child's birth smoother, you may be able to recover compensation for your child's ongoing needs, which may include:

  • Doctor's visits and additional surgeries
  • Physical and occupational therapy
  • Medications
  • Making accessibility modifications to your home, such as ramps

Because cerebral palsy will affect your child for life, you can be sure that I will not settle your case unless it is for an amount of compensation that is fair for you. I will stay in constant contact with you so you are aware of your options and the possible effects of your choices.
