New Jersey Cerebral Palsy Attorneys

Helping Those With Cerebral Palsy Who Have a Need for a Lifetime of Care

Cerebral palsy is a permanent nervous system condition that impacts many bodily functions, including muscle control, motor skills and posture. Cerebral palsy can be caused by brain damage due to a lack of oxygen during childbirth. In many cases, this brain damage can be the result of medical malpractice during labor and delivery. If your child has suffered cerebral palsy due to the negligence of an obstetrician or other medical professional, we can help.

Britcher Leone, LLC, with offices in Glen Rock and Parsippany, New Jersey, represents children throughout the states who have cerebral palsy as a result of medical negligence. Our law firm merges the disciplines of law and medicine to help people who have been severely injured by another's negligence.

Cerebral Palsy and Medical Negligence

Cerebral palsy can be caused by a child being deprived of sufficient oxygen during labor and delivery and a condition known as perinatal asphyxia leading to the development of hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy. The mother and child must be closely monitored during labor and delivery to ensure that the labor is progressing smoothly. Fetal monitoring can help determine whether a child is in distress. When there are signs of distress during labor and delivery, the obstetrician must act decisively in order to deliver the child safely. These actions may include delivering the child via cesarean section. The failure to act in a timely fashion can lead to oxygen deprivation and cerebral palsy.

Individuals with cerebral palsy frequently require a great amount of accommodative devices and medical care that involves significant costs. Our law firm has substantial experience evaluating and handling legal claims for individuals who require lifelong care as a result of another's negligence. We have experience retaining experts whose opinions and testimony can explain the full scope of your damages.

We are experienced trial lawyers with a history of helping many victims of malpractice. Although trial is not always necessary to resolve medical malpractice claims, we are ready to make a convincing presentation when a trial is necessary.
