Albuquerque Cerebral Palsy Attorney

Call (505) 906-6774 to Obtain Compassionate & Experienced Legal Representation in New Mexico

Welcoming a new child into the world is one of the happiest moments in a parent’s life. However, ten percent of children in the United States are born with cerebral palsy (CP). In order for a child with CP to live a long and fulfilling life, providing him/her with lifetime medical care is necessary—but it is more than many families can afford. In many cases, this condition is caused by medical malpractice.

If your child’s cerebral palsy is caused by medical errors or negligence by a healthcare provider in New Mexico, the Law Office of James H. Wood PC is committed to holding the liable parties responsible for their careless and dangerous actions and help your family recover your entitled compensation. With more than three decades of legal experience and over a million dollars recovered on behalf of our clients, our New Mexico birth injury lawyer can maximize the award your child deserves—whether we reach a settlement outside of court or a trial verdict.

How We Can Help Your Family

Cerebral palsy is a health condition resulting from damage to the developing brain, affecting muscle coordination, movement, balance, and posture. This disorder is often caused by a lack of oxygen in the mother’s womb, trauma either during labor or delivery, or other birth injuries.

CP as a result of preventable birth injuries is the basis of most medical malpractice lawsuits. From failing to monitor the child and mother’s health or mishandling fetal distress to using harmful techniques to deliver the baby, medical malpractice can take many forms.

To succeed in a lawsuit, you must prove that a doctor-patient relationship existed with the defendant, the defendant was negligent (often with the help of an expert witness), the defendant’s negligence resulted in your child’s birth injury, and you and your child suffered damages caused by the injury.

Our Albuquerque medical malpractice lawyer can investigate your case, collect evidence, and help your family obtain financial compensation to pay for surgery, therapy, assistive devices, and other forms of medical treatment. While healthcare providers and hospitals are backed by powerful legal teams, we are not afraid to go up against them in court to protect your rights and best interests.
