Medical supply companies have to be very precise about what they do for the same reason that this is true of doctors. Medical supply companies have to make sure that the products they provide are sterile and safe to use. There have been cases where medical supply companies have been implicated in causing CP injuries in children and how it happens is something that some parents may want to consider.
A healthy adult can take an amazing amount of exposure to infected and contaminated materials with minimal consequences, in some cases. Even when adults do get infected with something, they usually manage to fight it off. When a child catches an infection, however, the stakes are very high. Infections can kill children and, in some cases, can end up causing the type of brain damage that results in CP.
Some medical products end up getting recalled because they are found to be contaminated or otherwise defective. If one of these supplies could have resulted in your child suffering CP injuries, you may be able to sue the company that produced the item. You’ll have to speak with an attorney about this.
How You Find Out
When a child is diagnosed with CP, there is a medical investigation into the cause of the disorder. You may find that a medical supply is implicated in the cause of the condition. This is information your cerebral palsy lawyer will need if they decide to take you on as a client.
There are sometimes multiple reasons that a child suffers a CP birth trauma. The doctor or healthcare provider may also share responsibility for the injury. Your lawyer can sue more than one entity for the injury, so there may be multiple parties that you end up going after.
Talking to an Attorney
Having a child diagnosed with CP is always distressing. It’s hard to figure out what to do next when you’re faced with such information. Talk to an attorney about the matter. They can take a look at your situation and determine if there is a chance that you could win a lawsuit. There are plenty of ways that medical suppliers, hospitals and doctors can fail that end up causing these types of brain injuries. Finding an attorney who understands how these cases work and how children with CP face a future that will be financially challenging is vital to getting compensated.
