Attorneys for Periventricular Leukomalacia Brain Damage – PVL Lawsuit

$15-million-dollar jury verdict for periventricular leukomalacia and cerebral palsy — brain injury to a child — hospital personnel delayed effective ventilation of premature baby, resulting in periventricular leukomalacia (PVL) and cerebral palsy.

For over 40 years, The Fitzgerald Law Firms have been committed to fighting for children with birth injuries, including periventricular leukomalacia (PVL). In the case above, our birth injury lawyers represented a child who was born prematurely in a labor room that was not equipped and staffed to resuscitate a premature infant. Expert witnesses called by The Fitzgerald Law Firm testified that this departure resulted in a delay of effective ventilation and hypoxia, a subnormal concentration of oxygen (oxygen deprivation). The Fitzgerald Law Firm successfully argued that the hypoxia, superimposed on the child’s premature birth, resulted in periventricular leukomalacia (PVL) and cerebral palsy. The jury agreed and awarded our young client $15,000,000. Read about our $15,000,000 case involving periventricular leukomalacia.

What is Periventricular Leukomalacia?

Affecting fetuses, premature babies and newborns, periventricular leukomalacia is a form of brain injury that actually creates holes in the brain tissue. While there are generally no outward signs of periventricular leukomalacia, it can be revealed though delayed mental development, problems with coordination as well as vision and hearing, and motor skills development.
