Cerebral palsy is a term used to describe a range of conditions that affect the neurological system. While cerebral palsy can be caused by a genetic disorder, it can also be caused by a medical mistake during labor and delivery. When a medical professional makes a mistake that results in a birth injury, lives are changed forever.
At the Carter Law Offices, our birth injury attorneys have recovered significant compensation on behalf of families affected by birth injuries and many other medical claims. If your child has been injured due to a doctor's mistake, contact a Kansas City cerebral palsy lawyer today. In a free consultation, we can explain your legal options for seeking compensation.
Causes of Cerebral Palsy
Our law firm represents the families of children who have been diagnosed with cerebral palsy or Erb's palsy caused by medical malpractice. Some common causes of medical malpractice-related cerebral palsy include:
- Oxygen deprivation during labor and delivery
- Infections during pregnancy
- Fetal distress
- Birth asphyxia (respiratory failure in infant)
- Premature delivery
- Head injuries/brain trauma
We have a registered nurse on staff, as well as a doctor of chiropractic. Together, we efficiently and effectively prepare cerebral palsy cases, focusing on the medical and legal facts of the case. Our goal is to help you seek compensation to cover the current and long-term expenses associated with your child's injury, including medical expenses, assistive devices, rehabilitation and more.
