Atlanta Cerebral Palsy Attorney
Helping Families Across Georgia

Cerebral palsy is one of the most serious conditions that can afflict your child.

Unfortunately, some of these cases are avoidable. If your child has cerebral palsy and you suspect that your doctor may be at fault, an Atlanta cerebral palsy attorney can help you protect your child’s future.

One of the ways that cerebral palsy occurs is when the brain doesn’t develop properly. While the specific cause may be unknown, cerebral palsy is often the result of chromosomal abnormalities or genetic disorders. However, some cases of cerebral palsy are the result of medical malpractice during labor and delivery. Medical malpractice occurs when the doctor or hospital fails to provide you with treatment that meets the standard of care – the level of treatment that most other doctors or hospitals would provide during labor and delivery. If you suspect that your child’s cerebral palsy is the result of medical malpractice, you should contact an Atlanta cerebral palsy attorney right away.

 

 

How an Atlanta Cerebral Palsy Attorney Can Help

Birth injury medical malpractice claims are incredibly difficult for non-lawyers to pursue, and cerebral palsy cases are no exception. The circumstances surrounding these cases are incredibly complex and it is difficult to determine whether your doctor was negligent. You also need to know how the law will apply to your case. Finally, you will have to deal with your doctor’s insurance company, who is inclined to deny liability and refuse to pay your claim. For these reasons, we recommend that you at least speak with an experienced Atlanta cerebral palsy attorney about your case.

Atlanta Cerebral Palsy Attorney Explains Potential Causes During Birth

Physical Trauma During Birthing

Doctors will sometimes use forceps or a vacuum extractor to facilitate the birth of the baby. When used improperly, they can cause damage to the brain which can result in cerebral palsy.

Lack of Oxygen

Another potential cause of cerebral palsy is when the baby does not get sufficient oxygen during labor and delivery. This can happen when the doctor fails to adequately monitor the baby’s heart rate or oxygen levels.

Inadequate Medical Response

Cerebral palsy can also occur when doctors fail to take emergency action when the baby’s vital signs indicate that it is in distress. Failure to perform an emergency c-section or other take other steps can deprive the baby of oxygen for longer than necessary and lead to cerebral palsy. Doctors should be able to correctly diagnose the baby’s condition and take the appropriate steps.

Atlanta Cerebral Palsy Attorney Explains How Inadequate Prenatal Care Can Contribute to Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy can also be caused by inadequate care prior to labor and delivery. This can include failing to treat infections in the mother, failure to diagnose potential complications, or failure to adequately prepare for a difficult delivery.

You May Be Entitled to Compensation for Your Child’s Cerebral Palsy Birth Injury

Cerebral palsy is a life-long condition with no cure, and children with this condition have special needs. If your doctor was negligent, you may be entitled to compensation for the following: 

  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • The income you have lost to care for your child
  • The cost of on-going care, medical equipment, therapy, and modifications to your home

The value of your claim could be significant. An Atlanta cerebral palsy attorney can help you get the compensation you need so that your child can enjoy a happy future.
