It is always tragic when a child is discovered to have cerebral palsy. Although the parents’ love for their child doesn’t change, the fact of the challenges to come in the family’s future is unmistakable.
The challenges of cerebral palsy are all the more tragic when they result from human errors – errors that could have been avoided if the medical professionals caring for the child would have only adhered to a minimum standard of care. This is where we step in. At McKeen & Associates, PC, we fight for clients who have suffered the tragic effects of medical malpractice.
A Recent Success
At McKeen & Associates, PC, we recently won more than $130 million for a client whose child got cerebral palsy as a result of medical malpractice, as reported by Fox 2 Detroit online.
The plaintiff’s child, who was two months old at the time, went to William Beaumont Hospital in 2006. Multiple attempts to start an IV, which led to a breath-holding incident. The medical team failed to call a code blue in time or give the child chest compressions, which led to “severe and prolonged hypoxic ischemic insult resulting in massive brain damage.”
