Your baby probably reached milestones like rolling over, sitting up and walking later than other children, if at all. However, symptoms may have unfolded over the first few months after birth and will afflict your child throughout life. The condition can be crippling, and caring for your daughter or son with cerebral palsy can take a significant toll on you and your family, financially and emotionally.
HOW DOES CEREBRAL PALSY OCCUR?
Here’s what hospitals won’t tell you:
Cerebral palsy results from the mistakes made by a doctor, nurse, or hospital staff during birth. In some cases, cerebral palsy is due to developmental brain malformation resulting from genetic disorders or lack of blood supply to the brain. Frequently, however, cerebral palsy results from injury to the brain during or around the time of delivery.
Led by internationally-known lawyer Geoffrey Fieger, our team of talented attorneys are experts at handling birth trauma cases, including cerebral palsy and brain damage. We will investigate the causes of your case and get you the answers you deserve. If your hospital is responsible, we’ll fight to make sure they pay for your child’s treatment, rehabilitation, and future care.

If you had the following events occur during your delivery, your child’s cerebral palsy might be the result of negligence:
- Did you have a difficult delivery or C-section?
- Was your baby deprived of oxygen?
- Did your doctor use a vacuum or forceps during delivery?
- Did your son or daughter suffer head trauma or birth injury?
- Were there problems with your baby’s heart rate on the fetal monitor?
- Did your baby need to be resuscitated?
