Confidential and Fast Results
At the Berthold Law Firm we understand that an injury to your child can be one of the most devastating experiences in your life. An injury caused by the negligence or reckless actions of a doctor, mid-wife, or nurse during labor or delivery can result in life-long damages to a child. A newborn is especially susceptible to brain damage, as the skull is very fragile, and the brain is still developing. If your child has suffered a permanent birth injury, such as cerebral palsy or Erb's palsy, you may be eligible for monetary compensation.
Cerebral palsy and Erb's palsy are non-progressive, non-contagious brain conditions that result in a lack of muscle tone and coordination. Individuals suffering from Erb's palsy have limited movement in their arms or hands, depending on the severity of the case. Cerebral palsy typically affects the whole body however. Individuals with cerebral palsy often have abnormal posture, overly stiff or slack muscle tone, and a general lack of muscle coordination. If you live in West Virginia, and require counsel from a birth injury lawyer, contact Berthold Law Firm.
