Cerebral Palsy

Chicago Cerebral Palsy Attorney

Over a half a million people in the United States are afflicted with cerebral palsy or CP. The experienced Chicago cerebral palsy attorneys at Nemeroff Law Offices have handled many CP cases. CP is commonly a result of a birth injury caused by negligence of a medical provider during the labor and delivery process.

Cerebral palsy is a neurological disorder that affects muscle control, head control, walking, muscle tone, coordination, balance, and cognitive functioning. CP is the result of damage to specific areas of the brain that control those functions. Some common causes of CP are hypoxia and over stimulation of the uterus during the birth process.

CP can be the result of a birth injury. A birth injury is harm caused to the baby before, during, or upon birth. There can be many different causes of birth injuries, from complications during pregnancy to problems during delivery.

The types of birth injuries can vary, some are minor, and others can result in life-long suffering to the mother and/or child. Due to the negligence of medical provider families can endure a future of severe hardships. A child with a birth injury may typically require medical treatment for their entire life. His or her disabilities may be permanent. The lifetime cost to care for a person with cerebral palsy, which includes medical treatment and rehabilitation, can be staggering. Often, those costs can run into the millions of dollars. The greatest financial cost to families often is the future attendant or custodial care. We work with life care experts or economists to accurately determine this future cost. Accurately determining the non-economic damages is extremely important in birth trauma cases.

In a Cerebral Palsy medical malpractice case, the Nemeroff Law Offices will seek to prove that your Chicago medical provider acted negligently and that their negligence directly caused the birth injury. If your child has a cerebral palsy birth injury, working with an experienced cerebral palsy lawyer is vital to a successful resolution of your case.
