Brooklyn Cerebral Palsy Attorney

No Fees Unless We Recover for You

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 Brooklyn 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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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 a Brooklyn 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.
