Cerebral palsy is a serious and life-altering condition that develops during
pregnancy or childbirth. If your child has cerebral palsy, it might be
because a doctor or other hospital staff member was negligent during the
delivery of your child. If this is the case, you should contact an experienced
NYC medical malpractice cerebral palsy lawyer as soon as possible to discuss
your child’s right to file a lawsuit.
Understanding Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral palsy occurs when a child sustains an injury to the portion of
the brain that controls development and motor skills. While the severity
of cerebral palsy varies from one individual to the next, there are
four major categories of cerebral palsy:
- Spastic cerebral palsy is the most common form. Spastic cerebral palsy
is marked by impairment to the mobility because of a lesion in the brain
that affects neuromuscular function.
- The second type of cerebral palsy is ataxic cerebral palsy, which is caused
by damage to the cerebellum and results in problems with balance, tremors,
and hypotonia, as well as vision and hearing problems.
- Another type is athetoid or dyskinetic cerebral palsy. Athetoid cerebral
palsy has mixed muscle tone and results in motor control problems, mobility
problems, and involuntary movement.
- The last type of cerebral palsy is a mixed form, which can include elements
of spastic cerebral palsy, ataxic cerebral palsy, and athetoid cerebral palsy.
If your child suffers from any of these types, you should contact an NYC
cerebral palsy injury lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your child’s
right to file a cerebral palsy lawsuit.
What can cause cerebral palsy during birth?
Many different types of
medical malpractice or obstetric negligence can cause cerebral palsy. It can be caused by
trauma during the birth process, such as negligent removal with forceps or vacuum. It can also be caused
by hypoxia, where the child was deprived of oxygen in their blood during
the delivery. Both premature infants and multiple births are more susceptible
to cerebral palsy.
