New York City Cerebral Palsy Attorney

What is Cerebral Palsy?

Cerebral palsy is a neurological disorder that can be caused by an injury to the brain during delivery. Often the result of medical malpractice, cerebral palsy can result in an impairment or loss of motor function that affects posture, balance, reflexes, muscle tone, and muscle coordination and muscle control. It can impact oral motor functioning, gross motor skills, and fine motor skills, as well as brain damage impairing intelligence.

Cerebral palsy can result when an infant’s brain or body does not receive enough oxygen during childbirth or from another serious yet preventable birth trauma.

Medical errors that could result in cerebral palsy or other serious birth injuries include:

  • Failing to detect a prolapsed umbilical cord
  • Failing to monitor fetal heart rate before and during birth
  • Failing to detect and treat infections in the mother during her pregnancy
  • Delaying or failing to perform a medically-necessary C-section
  • Failing to schedule a C-section when the baby is too large to safely be born naturally
  • Improperly using birth assisting tools including forceps of vacuum extractors

A doctor’s mistake could spell a lifetime of difficulty for an injured child. Constant medical care, accommodations, disability equipment, and special education are just some of the many considerations parents and caregivers must face in providing care to injured children. The emotional and financial burdens that victims and their families must face can be substantial, which is why it is important to speak with a New York birth injury lawyer about your legal right to compensation.
