Cerebral Palsy

Negligence Attorneys Serving the Five Boroughs and Beyond Cerebral palsy is a permanent condition caused by brain damage that impacts an individual’s muscle tone and movement. This condition is often caused when an infant receives diminished levels of oxygen during the labor and delivery process. Cerebral palsy is often accompanied by other developmental problems, including seizures, hearing problems and vision problems. Although cerebral palsy is sometimes unavoidable, in other cases cerebral palsy is the result of an obstetrician’s negligence during labor or delivery. If your child has cerebral palsy and you have reason to believe that medical negligence was the cause of your child’s condition, it is critical to speak with skilled legal counsel. We are the law firm of Dankner Milstein, P.C.

If there is evidence to show that an infant is not receiving sufficient oxygen during labor, the obstetrician must act decisively and deliver the child via cesarean section. The failure to deliver a child via cesarean section in a timely manner can lead to cerebral palsy or other permanent brain damage.
