Burger Law represents families of children affected by cerebral palsy, when caused by the negligence of the doctor during delivery. Sometimes during delivery, a doctor will not adequately and properly monitor whether a child is in distress and/or is getting sufficient oxygen and blood supply. That is why doctors use fetal heart monitors to assess a fetus’ well being. Failure to timely deliver a child vaginally or decide to do a cesarean section of the child can cause injury to the child because of lack of sufficient oxygen. This injury results in what is commonly and medically known as cerebral palsy. Burger Law has represented numerous families against obstetricians, physicians, nurses and hospitals to recover money to help take care of these afflicted children. We have settled these cases and obtained good results for the children.
