Ottumwa Cerebral Palsy Lawyers
The most important thing for all prospective parents is the health of their newborn baby. While almost all births in hospitals are handled properly by highly qualified medical professionals, negligence before, during or immediately after birth can result in lifelong complications.

Slater, has more than 31 years of experience in this area and has obtained numerous verdicts and settlements for the victims of birth injuries.

Birth Injuries Are Life Changing
A child’s life will never be the same after a birth injury. As a result, lifetime care may be needed to preserve their dignity and quality of life. At Slater & Norris, we seek verdicts and settlements that cover the true cost of birth injuries and related conditions such as:
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Shoulder dystocia
- Mental retardation
Most birth injuries can be prevented or treated properly if doctors, nurses and others properly communicate and closely monitor the child. If they acted negligently, by failing to monitor your child and act accordingly, we will fight to ensure they are held accountable for the damages that happened as a result.
