Danville Brain and Spinal Damage Attorneys
Neurological damage resulting from birth injury can be devastating to a newborn’s health, and can be a very difficult outcome for parents and other family members to cope with. It can be especially hard to know that an injury to a baby’s brain or spine can have lifelong consequences. Trauma to a newborn’s brain can have especially serious repercussions, as it prevents the brain from developing normally. If a baby’s spine is injured at birth, there can also be lasting health concerns. Spinal birth injuries usually occur if the baby is excessively pulled or twisted during birth.
The Danville brain and spinal damage attorneys of Spiros Law, P.C., understand how such an injury can be emotionally difficult and bring up concern for a baby’s well-being throughout his or her life. If such an injury was caused by the negligence of a doctor or other healthcare worker, the responsible parties should be held accountable for their actions. Contact us at (217) 443-4343 today.
