California Birth Injury Attorneys Protecting Cerebral Palsy Victims
Cerebral palsy affects more than 5,000 children in the United States each year. It is an infant brain injury that permanently inhibits the ability to move, hear, see and think. Some cerebral palsy symptoms include:
- Difficulty using arms, hands and legs
- Speech problems
- Problems swallowing and controlling bodily functions (bladder and bowel problems)
- Hearing problems, vision loss and reduced sensitivity to pain or touch
- Learning disabilities and attention deficits
If your child exhibits any of these symptoms, see a medical professional immediately for proper diagnosis and then consult one of our experienced medical malpractice attorneys.
Causes of Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral palsy is caused by an injury to the brain due to a lack of oxygen that occurs shortly before, during or after delivery. If the doctor fails to recognize the signs of fetal distress during delivery and neglects to take appropriate action, cerebral palsy may occur. When cerebral palsy is the result of a doctor's birthing negligence, it is important to consider taking legal action.
Living With Cerebral Palsy
Children with cerebral palsy may experience delays in physical developmental and speech. The more severely affected children might need walkers, wheelchairs and other special devices to move around. By consulting with an attorney and having experienced doctors on your child's side, you can ensure that your child has the best chance possible to get the assistance he or she needs to live with cerebral palsy.
