The parents of a little girl who was reportedly born with cerebral palsy as the result of medical malpractice during childbirth have filed a lawsuit against their doctor. The parents claim that the doctor is responsible for the irreversible injuries their daughter sustained and they are seeking compensation on behalf of their daughter, who is now seven years old and disabled.
According to reports, the trial, which is being held in Wisconsin, is entering it's second week. The doctor, who was employed at the Mile Bluff Medical Center in Juneau County at the time of the birth has not admitted to any negligence on his part, or on the part of his medical staff regarding the little girl's injuries.
Cerebral Palsy Lawsuit Details
The medical malpractice lawsuit has been filed against Dr. Robert Buss and the Mile Bluff clinic. The plaintiffs, Brenda and Lyle Olson, of New Lisbon, are accusing Buss and his staff of being negligent during the birth of their daughter, Emily. Emily is now living with the disability cerebral palsy and has not led the normal life of a little girl since her development, both physically and mentally, is slower than other children.
Emily was born at the Hess Memorial Hospital in Mauston and soon after her birth was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. The Olson's filed their complaint against the doctor in 2004 and are seeking judgments "in an unspecified amount."
