Cedar Rapids Facial Paralysis Attorneys
The process of giving birth is emotionally and physically exhausting for mother and infant. The medical professionals in charge of overseeing the birth are trusted to take care of the new family and to ensure that the health of each is protected. When medical malpractice leads to the injury of the mother or child, there may be grounds for legal action against the responsible party. Facial paralysis is one of the side effects of a poorly performed delivery and, sadly, a common occurrence for many infants.
If your newborn has been afflicted with facial paralysis due to the negligence of medical professionals, you may be eligible for financial compensation to address relevant damages. Contact the Cedar Rapids facial paralysis attorneys of Leehey Olson Law, P.C., at (319) 294-4424 to discuss your case with a knowledgeable member of our legal team today.
Information About Facial Paralysis
Facial paralysis occurs primarily as a result from pressure on the facial nerve before or during the birthing process. Some of the symptoms of this condition include:
- Inability to close eyelids on affected side
- The face below the eyes may appear uneven when crying
- The sides of the mouth move unevenly
- The entire face exhibits an inability to move
Any injury to the infant during birth can be emotionally challenging for the parents. No one should have to question whether their medical team is putting the well-being of their infant in danger.
If your son or daughter has suffered a birth injury because of the careless behavior of a medical professional you may be able to hold them responsible for your suffering. Contact the Cedar Rapids facial paralysis attorneys of Leehey Olson Law, P.C., at (319) 294-4424 for more information.
