Cerebral Palsy Birth Injury

Cerebral Palsy is a condition characterized by loss of movement or nerve functions. These disorders are caused by injuries to the brain that occur during fetal development or near birth. The incidence of cerebral palsy is approximately 2 to 4 individuals for every 1000 births. Cerebral palsy results from injury to the cerebrum (the largest portion of the brain, involved with higher mental faculties, sensations, and voluntary muscle activities). Other injuries can include botched circumcision, or Erb's Palsy or Shoulder Dystocia when excessive force harms the child during delivery.

Often these injuries do not become apparant until much later. One of our Attorneys recently collected more than 7 Million Dollars after a verdict for a Birth Injury Client.If you know a victim of birth medical malpractice contact us for help now
