Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is a non-progressive, non-contagious condition causing substantial physical disability, mostly where motor control is concerned. Cerebral palsy is often the result of a brain injury before, during, or just after birth. While most cerebral palsy cases are a tragic but unavoidable accident, some cases are the result of careless mishandling and negligence on the part of a doctor, nurse, or hospital staff. If this was the case with your child, contact a Pittsburgh medical malpractice lawyer as soon as possible.

Any number of mistakes made by hospital staff during birth can lead to cerebral palsy, including:

If your child suffered an injury during birth that led to cerebral palsy, you are entitled to seek financial compensation from the guilty parties involved. In a 2003 study, the Center for Disease Control estimated that the life-long cost of caring for a victim of cerebral palsy could add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars. While financial compensation can’t correct the damage done, it can ensure that your child receives a lifetime of the best care and treatment possible.
