Cerebral palsy is a developmental disorder which often occurs due to medical malpractice during pregnancy, delivery, or shortly after birth. When a lack of oxygen causes damage to a baby’s brain cells, motion, coordination, and speech become permanently affected.
Your child’s cerebral palsy could be due to an infection that wasn’t caught in a timely manner during the 9 months of pregnancy, lack of oxygen to the baby’s brain during delivery, and even trauma inflicted on his or her head from using forceps or suction to deliver the child. If your child was born with cerebral palsy due to a doctor’s negligence, please contact our cerebral palsy attorneys today. Our attorneys are available for a free consultation by phone (toll-free) at 1-855-833-3707.
According to statistics, about 1 in every 1000 live births results in a cerebral palsy diagnosis. While often not evident at birth, parents may begin to see worrying signs that something may be wrong a few months after the child is delivered. This may include things like the baby not making appropriate crying sounds, crossing its legs when it’s picked up and cradled, not being able to hold its head up, not being able to walk unaided after a year, and seizures.
Cerebral Palsy Challenges
Children born with cerebral palsy are faced with various challenges. First, they may require surgery to help them move their limbs in a more natural fashion – especially if they have spastic CP (which presents itself as stiff musculature and a limited range of movement). In addition, they may have a hard time reaching developmental milestones when compared to their peers due to the difficulty of doing what comes naturally to other kids such as crawling, walking, talking, grasping and more.
Kids with this condition may also need round-the-clock care during their formative years. In severe cases, this period may last well into adulthood. You also need to keep in mind that physical therapy, walking aids, wheelchairs, special clothing and home accessibility improvements do not come cheap, and this is why it’s important to seek out the services of a committed cerebral palsy lawyer.
Given the fact that the condition is frequently caused by a doctor or obstetrician’s negligence, your attorney may be able to file a lawsuit in order to recover compensation from the doctor’s (and hospital’s) insurance plan to help pay for treatment, rehabilitation, special education as well as other unexpected costs that you and your child may be faced with going forward. If this injury was caused by someone’s negligence, why should your family be made to cover the related expenses?
