Albany – Schenectady – Saratoga Cerebral Palsy and Birth Injury Lawyers
Children with cerebral palsy face a lifetime of challenges. While the causes of cerebral palsy can sometimes be hard to detect, many instances of this condition are caused by circumstances that could have been avoided if a doctor, nurse or someone else had taken greater precautions.
At the Law Offices of Sanford Rosenblum, P.C., our Albany cerebral palsy attorneys help parents get fair compensation for children who have been injured due to the negligence of others. We are dedicated to doing whatever it takes to get maximum results for our clients.
Seeking Fair Compensation for Injured Children
In many cases, cerebral palsy can be traced back to a brain injury that a child has experienced during labor or delivery. Hypoxia (oxygen deprivation) or a head trauma at any stage of the childbirth process can cause serious damage that can eventually manifest as cerebral palsy.
Obstetricians, hospitals, nurses and other medical professionals have a responsibility to take positive steps to avoid birth injuries, including, but not limited to, careful electronic fetal monitoring.
There is no cure for cerebral palsy. However, there are a number of therapies, treatments and devices that can substantially increase the functioning and quality of life of many people with this condition. People with cerebral palsy usually also need aides and home modifications.
Our firm works with top-notch doctors, rehabilitation experts, therapists and other experts to identify our clients’ life care and treatment needs so we can pursue fair compensation for future expenses.
Identifying Post-Birth Cerebral Palsy Causes
While many cases of cerebral palsy occur as a result of malpractice during labor and delivery, children can also develop cerebral palsy as a result of brain injuries resulting from head trauma, infections, meningitis, oxygen deprivation and other factors.
If your child has cerebral palsy, we may be able to help you identify the causes, as well as any parties whose negligence may have played a role.
