When Malpractice Leads To Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is condition marked by impaired mobility and muscle control, tremors, difficulty speaking, weakened muscle tone and other life-altering effects. One of the leading causes of cerebral palsy is lack of oxygen to the brain during childbirth. In some cases, the development of cerebral palsy can be directly linked to negligence on the part of an obstetrician or another medical professional.

At the Law Office of John A. Caputo, we have decades of experience handling birth injury claims, including those in which a child has developed cerebral palsy. With more than 40 years of legal experience, attorney John A. Caputo is prepared to protect your rights and help you pursue fair and just compensation for your past and future medical bills, pain and suffering, and other hardships.

Our Thorough Approach Makes A Difference

Unlike some birth injuries, the effects of cerebral palsy do not fade away over time. Your child will be affected for life. This is why it is so important to seek compensation for not only today's needs, but also the needs your child will face far into the future.

Depending on the nature and severity of the cerebral palsy, your child may require ongoing medical treatment, medication, adaptive equipment, adapted living quarters, physical therapy, doctor visits, special education and other expensive treatment and care.

The financial toll of cerebral palsy is devastating, but the law offers hope. When handling cerebral palsy claims, we thoroughly assess damages to determine how much it will cost for your child to live a fulfilling life. We leave no stone unturned, because we understand that nothing less than a child's future health, well-being, safety and happiness are at stake.
