The fact is that cerebral palsy is one of the worst kinds of medical issues, as it often affects individuals during pregnancy, birth or shortly after birth. In many instances of medical malpractice, cerebral palsy, children would have been otherwise healthy if it was not for conditions and certain complications which may have occurred during pregnancy or during the birthing process. According to the top Russian attorney Miami has in practice, Mr. Veinger, some of the most common complication include:

Some of the most common birthing issues that individuals may suffer from, include leaving the baby in the birth canal for far too long, untreated seizures, improper use of forceps and failure to detect a prolapsed umbilical cord.

According to Mr. Veinger, the top Russian lawyer Miami has to offer, it is vital to have an individual who is well versed in childbirth and possible childbirth injuries – in order to determine whether or not a hospital or doctor is responsible for your child’s cerebral palsy and if their birth defects were caused in part or in majority due to the negligence of the doctors.
A few important things must be established beforehand, by the attorney. As the top Russian lawyer Miami has to offer, Mr. Veinger and his team are often helping their clients to find assistance in the realm of personal injury compensation and accruing damages as a result of these types of actions. In order to pursue legal action, here are a few steps that they must first establish a few points, including:
· Duty of Care – This establishes that the hospital or doctor had a duty to care for you and the baby and they failed to do so. In essence, all medical staff automatically take on the responsibility to meet the accepted standards of medical care throughout your stay. And they did not.
· Breach of Duty – The two steps in proving a breach of duty, according to Mr. Veinger, the top Russian lawyer Miami has in practice, to establish negligence or medical malpractice. You must first show what the accepted treatment or method of providing that treatment is in the medical community and then show that the doctor and/or staff failed to meet that expected level of treatment for one reason or another.
· Damages – Once you prove that their actions were negligent, you must only then prove that the child has cerebral palsy and that their actions were the cause of the childbirth injuries to your child. Then assign a monetary value for the damages of which you feel can match the value of the actual damage that was done to you.
