Understanding Cerebral Palsy

What Is Cerebral Palsy?

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a group of disorders that affect movement, muscle tone, and motor skills. It is caused by damage or abnormalities in the developing brain, often occurring before or during birth. CP can impact a person's ability to move, maintain balance, and coordinate muscle movements.

Symptoms of Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy symptoms can vary widely, and they may become more apparent as a child grows. Common signs and symptoms include:

  • Delayed Motor Milestones: Delays in reaching motor milestones, such as sitting up, crawling, or walking.
  • Muscle Rigidity or Weakness: Abnormal muscle tone, which can manifest as stiffness or floppiness in the limbs.
  • Impaired Coordination: Difficulty coordinating movements and maintaining balance.
  • Speech and Language Delays: Challenges with speech and language development.
  • Fine Motor Skill Challenges: Difficulty with tasks that require fine motor skills, such as writing or buttoning clothes.
  • Gait Abnormalities: Walking with an abnormal gait, such as walking on toes or with a wide stance.

Who Needs a Cerebral Palsy Lawyer?

If your child has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy and you believe it may have been caused by medical negligence, you may need a cerebral palsy lawyer. This could include situations where mistakes were made during birth, or if a healthcare provider failed to diagnose or treat a condition that led to cerebral palsy. Other situations that merit the intervention of an attorney include:

  • Birth Injuries: If cerebral palsy resulted from medical negligence during childbirth, a lawyer can help determine if there are grounds for a legal claim.
  • Failure to Diagnose: If medical professionals failed to diagnose cerebral palsy in a timely manner, resulting in delayed treatment, legal action may be warranted.
  • Medication Errors: In cases where medication errors or mismanagement contributed to cerebral palsy, a lawyer can help pursue compensation.
  • Anesthesia Errors: If errors during anesthesia administration led to cerebral palsy, legal recourse may be available.

    "David worked our case with professionalism and patience in an amazing way that ultimately led to a positive outcome."
    Right from the very beginning of our case, David Skall and his assistant Jean Witt were both extremely kind and compassionate to help us put closure on a wrongful death case involving my father at a care facility. They were quick to answer any questions that we had and they made sure we were kept in the loop of this entire process. even though we were in the middle of a pandemic, David and his team were able to adapt their technology and make it all work out for our benefit. I would strongly recommend them to anyone in need of legal help.
