Cerebral Palsy

The Lawyers You Need & Deserve

Birth Injury
$12.0 Million
A mother was given excessive Pitocin during labor which caused brain damage to her newborn child. Shortly after filing the lawsuit, the hospital and doctor offered $12 million to settle the case. This money will be used to take care of the child and give her as full a life as possible under the circumstances.
Birth Injury
$10.0 Million
A routine ultrasound taken just prior to her due date showed that the twins were in fetal distress and emergency procedures needed to be undertaken. The radiologist misread the ultrasound noting it was normal. One of the infants was stillborn at birth and the other infant suffered profound brain damage until the time of his death at the age of 7. The hospital and doctor settled the case for $10 million.
Injured Worker
$8.3 Million
Carpenter was installing panels at a local job site and fell from a hydraulic lift resulting in serious injuries.
Emergency Room Error
$8.0 Million
A woman was mistakenly given a death penalty drug when she was admitted to a hospital with a stomach ache. The drug, which is a paralytic agent, caused the woman to stop breathing. She went into cardiac arrest and although she was rescued by the emergency room doctor, she suffered brain damage.
$7.0 Million
A young girl was injured in a collision when her mother had to swerve in order to avoid a Pace Van. The mother of an 18-month-old who sustained a lacerated liver after a medical-transportation van allegedly cut off the mother’s minivan and caused it to crash has settled her lawsuit for $7 million.
Fall at Work
$3.75 Million
An apprentice plumber fell through the floor of Trump Tower landing on the concrete below. He sustained injuries to his back, shoulder, and ankle. He was able to return to work following the accident.
Auto Accident
$3.5 Million
Settlement obtained for a 52-year old woman who suffered a broken leg after a car accident. According to the radiologist at the hospital, he reported a blood clot that was in danger of moving to her lungs, but her reporting doctors claimed they never received the report.
Head Injury
$3.5 Million
In 2012, Trapp & Geller settled a case against the general contractor and others in the amount of $3.5 million for negligence in allowing a support beam to fall, striking a laborer's head. The laborer suffered herniated discs in the neck.
Wrongful Death
$2.5 Million
A truck driver was standing on a roadway waiting for assistance after his truck broke down. A passing truck struck him resulting in his death.
Rear-End Collision
$2.3 Million

Cerebral Palsy Attorney Chicago

Learning that your child suffers from cerebral palsy is a devastating event. The news is even more heart wrenching if the injury was preventable.

At the law firm of Trapp & Geller in Chicago, Illinois, our lawyers represent families in birth injury and injuries involving infants. If your child suffers from cerebral palsy or another serious health condition, our lawyers are here to get the answers and compensation you need. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.

Was My Child’s Injury Preventable?

Cerebral palsy can have many different causes, and it may be impossible to find out why your child has cerebral palsy and whether it was preventable. In this event, there may be nothing that the civil justice system can do for you.

In some cases, however, cerebral palsy is caused by preventable errors or negligence. With the help of medical experts, our lawyers may be able to uncover the cause and hold the negligent party responsible. While nothing can undo the harm that was done to your child, our lawyers can seek compensation to help your child meet the challenges he or she will face.

The following are examples of negligence that can cause cerebral palsy:

  • Failure to treat a maternal infection
  • Lack of oxygen to the fetus during labor or delivery
  • An infant infection that results in brain inflammation or damage
  • An infant head injury

Over the past 30 years, our lawyers have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for children who have suffered life-changing injuries due to the negligence of others.
