WHAT CAUSES CEREBRAL PALSY?

Cerebral palsy, the term for a group of neurological disorders that affect muscle coordination and body movement, is caused by abnormal brain development or damage to the cerebral cortex, part of the brain that controls muscle movement. Some children are born with cerebral palsy, due to congenital abnormalities. Others acquire it, meaning it develops as a result of brain damage.

Causes of acquired cerebral palsy include:

  • Brain infections
  • Bleeding in the brain
  • Lack of blood flow to the brain
  • Head trauma

Has your child been diagnosed with cerebral palsy? Medical malpractice may be the cause, and our Pittsburgh cerebral palsy lawyers at Pribanic & Pribanic, LLC can carefully review your unique situation to determine whether this is true. We have seen instances where delayed C-sections, diagnostic errors, and other serious types of medical errors have caused brain damage that leads to cerebral palsy. We are here to help you seek justice and fair compensation for your child’s complete and ongoing care.

“We are ready to hear your story and offer our guidance. Schedule a free consultation with our cerebral palsy attorneys in Pittsburgh by calling 800-392-4529.”

ACQUIRING FAIR COMPENSATION FOR YOUR CEREBRAL PALSY CLAIM

Cerebral palsy may vary in severity, but it is a permanent condition. There is no cure. Your child may benefit from surgery, medication, assistive devices, and therapy to lead a more fulfilling and stable life, but these are extremely expensive. A fair settlement or verdict from a birth injury lawsuit can help you provide for your child – for life. Our team can work to identify potential links between your child’s condition and obstetrical malpractice.

The following actions and failures to act may cause cerebral palsy:

  • Failure to recommend a C-section
  • Delayed C-section
  • Mismanagement of fetal distress
  • Forceps and vacuum errors
  • Mismanagement of shoulder dystocia
  • Failure to diagnose macrosomia or cephalopelvic disproportion
  • Improper treatment for severe jaundice
