Center Line Cerebral Palsy Attorney

One of the most common types of birth injuries we see caused by medical malpractice is cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy (CP) is a type of brain injury that is caused by the brain’s inability to adequately control the body. Cerebral palsy can be caused by many things, some of which are preventable mistakes such as medical malpractice, and others are natural and unavoidable such as infections or genetics. Cerebral palsy symptoms usually appear within the first few years of a child’s life and can be diagnosed early.

To determine if your child’s cerebral palsy was the result of medical negligence, our Center Line cerebral palsy lawyer professionals will carefully review the labor and delivery records. During this review, we will look for signs of oxygen deficiency, which may have been overlooked in the delivery process.

There are several types of CP including:

  • Ataxic Cerebral Palsy
  • Athetoid Cerebral Palsy
  • Dyskinetic Cerebral Palsy
  • Hypotonic Cerebral Palsy
  • Spastic Cerebral Palsy

In addition to the motor disorder, there are several other medical issues that are often associated with cerebral palsy such as mental retardation, learning disabilities, epilepsy, scoliosis, hip dislocation, speech or visual impairments, and Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder.

Center Line Birth Injury Litigation Attorney

Our Center Line birth injury attorneys are skilled litigators who prepare every case as if it is going to trial. This approach maximizes settlement potential and actually increases the likelihood of a fair settlement before trial. Lawyers who never try cases negotiate from a position of weakness that reduces settlement value.

Few birth error attorneys can match our success in the courtroom or our experience with matters involving birth injury, brain injury, child TBI, cerebral palsy, serious injuries and medical issues.
