Understanding the Signs of Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral palsy, a birth injury, comes in three main forms: spastic, athetoid and ataxic. Regardless of the type, it generally impairs the control of movement and posture. Signs of cerebral palsy include stiff movements, uncontrollable movements or a lack of depth perception. Most often, these signs appear within the first few years of your child’s life, and are generally caused by negligent actions on the part of doctors and nurses during birth.
Deprivation Of Oxygen During Birth Can Lead To Extensive Brain Damage
What many parents do not know is that their children’s cerebral palsy could have been caused by the negligent actions or inactions of their nurses and doctors. This is because most brain damage is caused by a lack of oxygen reaching a baby during the labor or birth process. Other similar types of brain injuries caused by this include:
- Cerebral hypoxia (hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy)
- Meconium aspiration
Regardless of your child’s injury, we are prepared to fight hard to hold your medical practitioners responsible for the pain and suffering they have caused you and your family. Our staff will work closely with medical experts throughout your case to provide you with the best possible representation.
Your Case Will Be Evaluated By A Registered Nurse And An Attorney
Detecting birth injuries such as cerebral palsy can be quite challenging. We have a registered nurse on staff who will look closely at your situation. She will recognize if things occurred when they should not have and will know which types of experts to retain to help build your case. Attorney James “Bo” Bolus then takes all steps necessary to construct a comprehensive case to hold the negligent parties liable. It is this team approach that truly sets our firm apart.
