What Causes Cerebral Palsy?

Cerebral palsy can leave your child with a lifetime of expensive medical needs. Some injuries leave victims with severe motor disabilities, impaired speech and vision problems.

Some instances of cerebral palsy are caused by hypoxia, or lack of oxygen to the brain. Hypoxic brain injuries can be caused by:

  • The medical staff not noticing and reacting to hypoxia in time
  • Failure to perform a C-section
  • Failure to properly use the medicine used to increase contractions

Two of our attorneys are medical doctors, and another of our lawyers is a board-certified respiratory therapist. These professionals are well-versed in the causes of cerebral palsy. We will look for evidence in medical records, fetal monitoring strips and other sources to determine how and when your child’s brain injury occurred. We will do everything we can to help you obtain full and fair compensation for the losses you have suffered.
