Hiring a Lawyer for Cerebral Palsy Caused By Malpractice

Our team of cerebral palsy lawyers knows that no amount of money can change the diagnosis for your child, but that compensation can provide the best medical treatment and care as your child grows up.

Cerebral palsy is caused by brain damage at or before birth, and while it doesn't progress as your child gets older, there can be some serious complications. Not all cases of cerebral palsy are caused by medical malpractice. Any time your baby has insufficient oxygen, or oxygen deprivation throughout the pregnancy may lead to brain damage.

Babies with cerebral palsy typically show the signs by the time they are 18 months old. This may manifest in developmental delays or a delay in motor skills. Early signs may also include a delay in rolling, crawling, smiling, and unusually low muscle tone or rigidity of muscles.

Causes of Cerebral Palsy

Medical negligence can lead to your child being diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Some examples of medical malpractice that can result in a birth injury and cerebral palsy include:

  • Failure to properly monitor the baby's heart rate
  • Failure to notice or address fetal distress
  • Failure to order an emergency C-section
  • Treat maternal infections failure
  • Improper vacuum extraction
  • Improper use of forceps
  • Failure to address prolapsed umbilical cord

Failure of the medical professionals during the labor and delivery process that limit the infant's oxygen supply can lead to brain damage which may result in cerebral palsy. It is important for professionals to be attentive during the pregnancy and birthing process to avoid missing signs of fetal distress, hypoxia, and other birth injuries.

While cerebral palsy is not curable, it does not worsen over time. Often treatment aimed to improve your child's quality of life is designed to increase strength. This can include speech therapy, physical therapy, and occupational therapies.

Frequently Asked Questions Around Cerebral Palsy and Medical Malpractice

Our medical malpractice and cerebral palsy attorneys have answered some of the most common questions surrounding filing a lawsuit for a birth injury case resulting in a cerebral paly diagnosis. If you have other questions, do not hesitate to call today for a free consultation and to speak directly with an experienced attorney.

Can You Sue For Cerebral Palsy?

Yes, it is possible to sue for cerebral palsy if there was medical negligence or a medical mistake during pregnancy or childbirth. Cerebral palsy sufferers cannot always blame a doctor as not all cases are due to the negligence of the doctor or medical staff. It is important in a cerebral palsy or medical malpractice case to establish negligence.

How Long Do you have to Sue For Cerebral Palsy?

There are statutes of limitations in filing a medical malpractice case. Typically, this is set to two years from the time of the birth injury. In many cases, patients or parents of a child diagnosed with cerebral palsy do not realize that doctors have made a mistake that lead to severe brain damage.

It is important to contact experienced cerebral palsy lawyers as soon as you suspect malpractice. Call today for a free consultation to learn more about the specifics relating to your child's condition.

What Is A CP Lawyer?

A cerebral palsy lawyer is an experienced medical malpractice lawyer who can help navigate the laws and lawsuit process. This may include pulling medical records, investigating doctors and medical facilities, and obtaining a certificate of merit.

Without an experienced attorney fighting for you, it may be difficult to stand up to the defendants and secure compensation to help your child now and in the future. Our Pennsylvania birth injury attorneys work with you to build an attorney-client relationship that lasts for years for future assistance with setting up trusts or even if you are denied benefits or services for special education treatments.

Lawyers who are not experienced in medical malpractice may not know how to uncover mistakes made by the medical professionals or gather the proper expert witnesses, and the chances of winning a birth injury case are lower.

Are There Different Types of Cerebral Palsy?

Yes, there are different kinds of cerebral palsy that your child can be diagnosed with.

Athetoid Cerebral Palsy involves slow, often uncontrolled movements in the affected areas. This can also affect speech and movement within the mouth.
