Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is a term used for a large group of movement and developmental disorders that appear in early childhood and last a lifetime.  Individuals with cerebral palsy may experience poor coordination, tremors, muscle weakness, speech issues, and cognitive impairment, among a variety of other symptoms.

Medical malpractice that occurs before, during, or after the birth of an infant can cause cerebral palsy.  The attorneys at Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA are currently offering free consultations to the parents and families of infants who suspect a link between medical or surgical malpractice and cerebral palsy.

We have represented numerous families impacted by cerebral palsy, and we understand the particular trials and tribulations your family is facing.  In addition to representation in negotiation and litigation, our attorneys can help identify any secondary sources of income, assistance, or benefits available to lighten the financial burden of accommodating a life with cerebral palsy.

While we will aggressively pursue those responsible for your loved one’s injuries, we also work hard to ensure you and your family achieve the best quality of life possible.

How Medical Malpractice Causes Cerebral Palsy

Both in utero and after birth, fetal and infant development is a fragile process.  When the portions of the brain that control movement either 1) sustain physical damage, or 2) develop abnormally due to outside influences, cerebral palsy can occur.

In the medical malpractice context, physical damage to the brain may occur due to preventable delivery complications or other birth or post-birth physical trauma to an infant’s head.  Likewise, medical malpractice can also lead to abnormal brain develop due to outside influences, like prescription or medication errors, or a failure to treat medical conditions of the mother.

Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA’s malpractice lawyers are experienced in identifying, litigating, and successfully recovering compensation in cerebral palsy cases.  Contact us by phone or email now for a free consultation and let us fight for your family.
