“What is the cause of my child’s cerebral palsy?” We hear this question quite often, since we represent many families with children suffering from cerebral palsy. Truthfully, most cases are not the result of medical negligence. Just because your child has cerebral palsy does not mean that you have a case against the hospital or doctor. There are, however, many cases where cerebral palsy could have been avoided. By examining medical records and hiring some medical experts, we can find out the cause of your child’s handicap. We choose to pursue cases with clear evidence that bad decisions were made on the part of the doctor or hospital that directly resulted in your child’s condition. We don’t want medical malpractice to happen to anyone, so we work hard at identifying and pursuing these cases. If you think you have a case and would like more information, then please call Donahoe Kearney at 202-393-3320.

PATIENT SAFETY RULES
Every hospital, HMO and doctor's office is supposed to follow basic patient safety rules.
Like all of us - bus drivers, accountants, construction workers, lawyers, we all have rules to follow. And nurses, doctors, hospital techs, specialists, consultants are no different. Everyone in healthcare has rules to follow - rules that are in place to keep patients safe.
So if you think someone you know was seriously injured because someone in healthcare didn't follow the rules, or a hospital didn't have a system to make sure the right thing was done, call us or send us a confidential email. We'll give you as much information as we can about preventable medical mistakes in D.C., Maryland or Virginia and holding the healthcare system accountable for breaking the rules.
