New York Cerebral Palsy Lawyers

Cerebral Palsy Birth Injury Attorneys in NYC

Cerebral palsy is a serious birth injury that comes with a lifetime of consequences. The condition may be the result of a medical error during childbirth in which the baby’s oxygen level was restricted during labor. If your baby does not receive enough oxygen during childbirth, it can result in certain types of brain damage, including causing cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy has significant consequences for the child, which include:

  • Motor skill delays
  • Developmental delays
  • Difficulty in speech
  • Stiff muscles
  • Abnormal muscle tone
  • Lack of coordination
  • Tremors, involuntary motions

If your child developed cerebral palsy due to the negligence of others, contact Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP today. We can review the facts in your case to determine whether it is possible to file a legal action to pursue compensation for damages.

Do I Have A Birth Injury Case?

Not every birth injury is a result of doctor error or medical malpractice. To determine whether your child’s injuries were a result of negligence, the facts surrounding what occurred during the birthing process must be investigated thoroughly. We have the professional resources and knowledge to determine whether your baby’s condition was the result of a failure to act with the accepted standard of care.

As a medical professional, your doctor is responsible for monitoring and recognizing risk factors for cerebral palsy and taking specific actions to avoid hypoxia – the medical term for oxygen deprivation. If your doctor failed to act to prevent birth injury from occurring, it is possible to seek justice and compensatory damages through filing a birth injury lawsuit.

If certain decisions are made incorrectly, tragedy can result. For example:

  • If the infant is suffering from seizures, those involved in the birth must recognize and treat these seizures
  • If the fetus is in distress, the doctor must perform a Caesarean section (C-section) birth in a timely fashion.

There are other causes of failure such as the failure to detect a prolapsed umbilical cord or the improper use of delivery forceps or a vacuum extractor. Whatever the cause of your child's cerebral palsy, our New York cerebral palsy attorneys and lawyers will get to the bottom of it. Once the negligent parties are identified, we will work diligently to recover the financial compensation your child needs to live with dignity and comfort.

Hold Negligent Health Care Providers Accountable
