At Simpson Kepler Edwards, our team of medically-trained Cerebral Palsy attorneys and consultant nurses are here to help.

What is Cerebral Palsy?

Cerebral palsy is a broadly-defined and chronic condition caused by damage to a developing brain. It is a condition that affects thousands of newborns each year.  Signs of cerebral palsy usually present themselves in first three years of a child’s life and may include symptoms such as:

  • Poor motor skills
  • Delays in reaching developmental milestones, such as suckling, sitting, crawling, and walking
  • Slow reflexes

Spastic and Athetoid Cerebral Palsy

Spastic cerebral palsy is a type of disorder in which the muscles are unnaturally tight, causing stiff, awkward movements, including difficulty walking.

Athetoid cerebral palsy, also referred to as dyskinetic cerebral palsy, is a condition in which the muscles are unnaturally loose and difficult to control, leading to trouble with movement and posture.

The majority of cerebral palsy patients suffer a combination of symptoms of both spastic and athetoid cerebral palsy.

Causes of Cerebral Palsy

While not all cases of cerebral palsy can be attributable to medical malpractice, one of the most common causes is physician negligence during labor or neonatal care. Lack of oxygen to the brain, bleeding and head injures sustained during birth are known to cause cerebral palsy. Diseases and infections such as jaundice, rubella, Rh incompatibility and meningitis are also known to give rise to the condition.

Caring for those with Cerebal Palsy

Each cerebral palsy patient is unique, and may display numerous symptoms in varying degrees. While there is currently no known cure for the condition, cerebral palsy can be managed to maximize independence in most cases.

Most individuals with cerebral palsy will require extensive and ongoing medical care, including specialized training and other therapy to overcome their limitations. In addition, many individuals require modifications to be made to their home and motor vehicles. If your child has developed cerebral palsy as a result of a physicians’ negligence, you have the right to seek compensation for your loss—including recovery of damages for:

  • Medical bills
  • Wheel chairs and other movement aids/assistive devices
  • Modification of vehicles
  • Modification of the home
