What is Cerebral Palsy? 

Cerebral palsy is actually a group of neurological disorders resulting from injury to the brain during childhood. Cerebral palsy is irreversible. Children that have this condition do not get better over time. They will exhibit the symptoms and effects of the condition for the rest of their lives. Some of these symptoms include: 

  • Stiff or tight muscles 
  • Lack of muscle coordination 
  • Differences in muscle tone 
  • Involuntary movements or shaking 
  • Weakness in the limbs 
  • Poor reflexes
  • Difficulties in speaking 
  • Difficulties in swallowing 
  • Difficulty in performing precise movements such as writing 

Children with cerebral palsy suffer from impaired neurological and motor development. They often require extensive rehabilitation during their development. The condition affects children in different ways. Many children with this condition suffer from: 

  • Seizures 
  • Language and speech disorders 
  • Hearing loss 
  • Drooling 
  • Impaired vision 
  • Incontinence 
  • Intellectual disabilities 
  • Infections 
  • Long term illnesses

Frequently Asked Questions about Cerebral Palsy Lawsuits in NY

Do I have a valid cerebral palsy claim?

Not all cerebral palsy cases are a result of a doctor’s negligence. It is therefore important to provide evidence to show that your child’s condition was a result of negligence on the part of your doctor before, during, or after birth. Some cases of the negligence by doctors resulting in the development of cerebral palsy include:
— Failing to recognize infections during the pregnancy
— Failing to monitor the baby’s oxygen levels before or during birth and thus failing to recognize hypoxia leads to the development of cerebral palsy
— Causing a head injury during birth
— Failing to order a C-section when needed and thus causing the baby to be injured during birth
— Failing to diagnose the urinary tract or kidney infections in the mother
— Failing to react appropriately and in a timely manner to complications
