Seeking Compensation For Cerebral Palsy Caused By Medical Malpractice

The birth of a child should be one of the happiest moments of new parents' lives. They have been reading parenting books for months, focusing on providing excellent prenatal care, and setting up the nursery. But in the face of medical negligence, it can turn what should be one of the happiest days into one of the darkest.

At the Law Offices of Raymond J. Slomski, P.C., our team of birth injury lawyers and experienced support staff represents newborns diagnosed with cerebral palsy as a result of medical negligence during birth. Over the decades that we have been serving the Phoenix area as well as the rest of Arizona, we have come to understand that many types of medical negligence can lead to cerebral palsy in children.

About Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is a condition caused by injury to the cerebrum (the largest part of the brain). These injuries typically occur before, during or shortly after the birth of an infant.

Each case of cerebral palsy is unique. One common characteristic associated with cerebral palsy includes disorders involving movement, muscle control and strength. Symptoms may also include seizures, spasms, visual and hearing problems, hyperactivity and learning disorders. Although it is not a progressive disease, its effects may change over time. Constant treatment and accommodations are often needed to help children with cerebral palsy live as normal a life as possible.

Our registered nurse will work in conjunction with our attorneys and staff to evaluate potential negligent actions taken by health care providers in your child's birth injury case.
