The Damaging Effects of Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is caused by damage to the motor control centers of the brain that most often occurs during the birthing process. It can affect your child's posture, coordination and muscle tone, which could cause your child to struggle with walking, eating, talking and fine motor skills.

There are three types of cerebral palsy that can have varying effects on a child, including:

  • Athetoid - This causes children to struggle with sitting, walking in an upright position and holding objects.
  • Ataxic - This affects balance and depth perception and causes poor coordination and muscle tone. Children with ataxic cerebral palsy may struggle with walking, typing and writing.
  • Spastic - This is one of the most common types of cerebral palsy, and it causes children to have increased muscle tone, which leads to stiff, jerky movements. Children also have trouble speaking or holding objects.

Unfortunately, cerebral palsy can worsen as your child grows older, potentially causing seizures and impaired vision and hearing.

The Savannah cerebral palsy lawyers at The Nye Law Group have a successful track record of securing fair compensation for victims of birth injuries, including cerebral palsy. We can help you determine what caused your child’s condition and who should be held accountable for their suffering.

What Causes Cerebral Palsy Birth Injuries

It is the responsibility of healthcare professionals to closely monitor a mother and her baby for any signs of distress that could indicate brain damage. They can do this by using different tests, such as ultrasounds, stress tests and fetal monitor strips.

If distress is identified, doctors should deliver your baby immediately to prevent brain damage.  If they fail to act in the appropriate way, the baby could suffer damaging injuries, including cerebral palsy.

Failing to notice and respond to fetal distress is just one of many mistakes that could be made during the birthing process. Other mistakes include:

  • Misusing vacuums or forceps
  • Not ordering a C-section in a timely manner
  • Failing to treat infections in the mother
  • Not noticing unusual changes in the infant's heart rate
  • Failing to notice that the baby is positioned for a feet-first birth

If healthcare professionals made any of these mistakes, they could be found negligent for their failure to uphold appropriate standards of care during the delivery process. Standards of care require medical professionals to exercise the same level of care that another doctor would in a similar situation.

Proving that medical professionals did not uphold the appropriate standard of care requires an experienced team of lawyers and experts. The Nye Law Group's Savannah cerebral palsy lawyers have the resources to thoroughly investigate your claim and find out exactly what happened. We can also hire medical experts to help interpret complex medical documentation and determine all of the liable parties.

Our Savannah cerebral palsy lawyers will review your claim for free and help you get the maximum compensation you are entitled.
