Legal Representation For Families With Children Diagnosed With Cerebral Palsy Due To Medical Malpractice In New York

Cerebral palsy is a potentially debilitating condition that can impair a child’s physical, mental, and emotional development and severely compromise the quality of his or her life. The condition results from a brain injury or abnormality, often due to a lack of oxygen to the brain. Although this damage to the brain can occur in the womb or at any point during the child’s first two years of life, it too often occurs during the birthing process as a result of medical malpractice.

When a physician or other member of the birthing team makes a preventable error that permanently and seriously injures a child, the family is entitled to compensation under the law. The consequences of cerebral palsy can be physically devastating for the child and emotionally and financially devastating for the family. The Brooklyn personal injury attorneys of Proner & Proner can take action against any and all of the parties liable for the child’s unnecessary suffering, identify both current and future losses and expenses related to the injury, and, if the claim cannot be settled, present the strongest and most compelling case possible before a jury.

About Cerebral Palsy

There is currently no cure for cerebral palsy, and treatment of its symptoms can be costly. Children with cerebral palsy may require speech and physical therapy, special education, expensive medications such as anticonvulsants, and even surgery to control pain and spasticity. In the most severe cases of cerebral palsy, the child may even have to be institutionalized.

Cerebral palsy is associated with a number of serious health conditions, including osteoporosis, scoliosis, arthritis, nutritional deficiencies, and seizures. It is a permanent condition that will not improve over the span of a child’s lifetime.

Common Medical Mistakes That Result In Cerebral Palsy

Doctors, nurses, and other delivery room personnel are expected to react quickly and correctly to potential complications that arise during the birthing process. When they fail to respond to problems that their competent peers would normally recognize and resolve, they can be said to have made a medical mistake. Common medical mistakes that result in cerebral palsy include:

You may not be aware that any of these surgical mistakes occurred during the birth of your child. This is why it is important to contact our personal injury attorneys as soon as possible to review your child’s cerebral palsy case. Our Brooklyn medical malpractice lawyers can investigate the care you received before, during, and after birth to identify any potential errors that may be responsible for your child’s condition.
