“7 out of every 1,000 children experience a birth injury,” said Watertown cerebral palsy lawyer Michael A. Bottar, Esq., an attorney with Syracuse-based Bottar Leone, PLLC, a law firm prosecuting New York birth injury lawsuits throughout the State, including those arising out of a failure to diagnose preeclampsia discussed in our blog post titled “Watertown New York Women With Gestational Diabetes At Risk For Preeclampsia, Palsy and Birth Injury.”
“Caring for these children takes time and costs money.” Many organizations exist to aid children permanently disabled following a difficult birth. These organizations, like the Northern New York Cerebral Palsy Association, provide services to children with conditions such as cerebral palsy while, at the same time, acting as a resource to families with children who have developmental disabilities.
Not-for-profit organizations cannot exist unless the community donates time and/or money. “Even in difficult times, we must remember to take care of those who cannot take care of themselves.”
The trial lawyers at Bottar Leone, PLLC, have decades of experience investigating, prosecuting and trying to verdict all types of New York birth injury cases including those where medical personnel failed to prevent injury caused by fetal distress. If your child was born with a birth injury, or was recently diagnosed with cerebral palsy, you and/or your family may be entitled to compensation for lifelong health care, medical expenses, medical bills, loss of income, and pain and suffering.
