California Spinal Cord Injury Attorney

Has your baby suffered a spinal cord injury?

The spinal cord, along with the brain, is the main message center of the body and when it is injured the results can be devastating. Nowhere is this truer than when a birth injury causes damage to a newborn's spinal cord.

Spinal cord injuries can cause decreased movement in the lower extremities, lack of sensation and difficulties in controlling internal temperature. They may compromise a baby's ability to use their lungs and can result in death. Brain damage, paralysis, incontinence, quadriplegia and the inability of the body to regulate breathing or heart rate can all result when an infant's spinal cord has been injured.

Frequently, the source of a spinal cord injury is the extreme force and pressure a newborn is exposed to, especially if there are labor or delivery problems. Many times, problems could have been avoided had accepted standards of medical practiced been adhered to. At Bostwick & Peterson LLP, we work diligently to help parents when their child has received a spinal cord injury through negligence or medical malpractice.
