We Hold Medical Professionals Accountable In Cerebral Palsy Cases
Cerebral Palsy is a permanent condition, resulting from brain damage occurred during labor and delivery. It is an oxygen deprivation injury that results when the infant’s supply of oxygen to the brain is reduced during labor and delivery. It can be caused by medical errors such as failing to perform a timely C-section, failing to recognize fetal distress, or failing to take immediate action to correct any potential problems.
Lozner & Mastropietro has experienced attorneys who have handled numerous birth injury cases that have resulted in Cerebral Palsy. We thoroughly examine the situation in which your child was injured to determine who was responsible.
Cerebral Palsy affects motor skills, senses, muscles, mental development and many other areas. The consequences of such damages can range from difficulty with fine motor operations (like using a spoon), to muscle spasms, to, in the most severe cases, mental retardation and total lack of muscle control (making movement and speech extremely difficult).
The expenses involved with Cerebral Palsy are very high due to medical procedures, health care assistants and assistive devices. Cerebral Palsy cannot be cured, although treatment options do exist. Treatments for children afflicted with Cerebral Palsy can include drug and chemical therapies, physical therapy and surgery.
