Bankersfield Medical Malpractice Attorney

Bakersfield Cerebral Palsy Lawyer

Cerebral palsy is a complex condition affecting coordination and motor skills. It can take several different forms, from muscle spasms to stiffness to low muscle tone. The spectrum of cerebral palsy ranges drastically. Some children merely appear awkward and uncoordinated, but can lead normal lives, while those with severe cerebral palsy may be confined to a wheelchair and unable to talk or eat unassisted. Especially severe cases can include mental disabilities, but most children with cerebral palsy develop mentally at an average pace—meaning that they are otherwise normal children trapped in bodies they cannot control.

There is no single cause of cerebral palsy. It can appear as the result of fetal exposure to toxins, or as a complication of a premature birth. It can also be caused by an injury or oxygen deprivation during the birth process. When this happens because of a doctor or hospital staff’s carelessness, it is truly unacceptable. If this happened to your child, contact a Bakersfield medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible.
