Cerebral Palsy Attorneys

Symptoms of cerebral palsy resulting from a birth injury can cause impaired mobility, seizures, irregular or jerky movements, stiffness, difficulties in speech, cognitive impairment, and other serious disabilities. In the most severe cases, sufferers are confined to a wheelchair and require round-the-clock care. Unfortunately, medical negligence on the part of doctors, nurses, midwives, and other healthcare or hospital personnel may be the cause of birth injuries leading to cerebral palsy.

The New York cerebral palsy lawyers at The Sanders Firm are leaders in the field of birth injury litigation. We have more than 40 years of experience in winning substantial settlements for parents and children who are dealing with cerebral palsy caused by negligence or malpractice.

Liability for birth injuries

In many cases, cerebral palsy is the result of medical malpractice or negligence during labor or delivery. In that situation, a cerebral palsy lawsuit can help families obtain financial compensation for their child’s medical expenses, ongoing care, hardship, and pain and suffering.

In a cerebral palsy case, the financial compensation is based on many factors and can be a very significant amount. Juries have awarded multi-million-dollar birth injury settlements based on the degree of malpractice or negligence, the child’s pain and suffering, the severity of the child’s disability, medical expenses, physical therapy, medications, lost wages, loss of quality of life, and other factors.
