How a birth injury can lead to Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is caused by damage to a developing baby’s brain before, during or immediately after birth. While uncommon, some cerebral palsy cases can be linked medical errors and complications, such as:

Improperly treated or undetected infections
Severe untreated jaundice
Asphyxiation
Failure to detect decreased heartbeat during birth
Forceful delivery
Delay in performing a C-Section
Bleeding or lack of oxygen
Misuse of vacuum extractor or forceps
Umbilical cord complications 

Many CP children have co-occurring conditions. 41% of CP children have epilepsy while 7% have autism.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know what caused my child’s cerebral palsy? 
Doctors will likely look to MRIs or CT scans to determine the extent of the damage and its source. However, your medical team may not admit responsibility for a birth injury. A birth injury lawyer will have unbiased medical experts examine your child to help determine the cause of your child’s injury.

Is there a time limit to file? 
Yes. The exact time limit is determined by the state in which the child was delivered. This period of time begins from either the time the negligence occurred or when the child first shows signs of injury. A birth injury attorney can help you determine the timeframe for your specific circumstance. 

What will I be awarded if I win? 
The amount you receive will depend upon the severity of your child’s injury as well as the extent to which the doctor or hospital was responsible. Winning a case can cover medical expenses such as in-home care and rehabilitation, education costs, counseling and pain and suffering.
