Arizona lawyers protect children who were injured at birth due to medical negligence.
Arizona Cerebral Palsy Lawyers
Cerebral Palsy is among the most devastating of birth injuries, although its cause often is not the result of birth injury negligence. This condition represents a group of disorders involving movement, learning, hearing, seeing and thinking that result from problems with brain development of a fetus or infant.
Together with our medical experts, we can assist you in determining whether medical malpractice was the cause of your child’s disorder. Concerned parents should be alert to these symptoms, and seek professional assistance where appropriate:
- Abnormal movements
- Abnormal sensations
- Abnormal muscle tone
- Decreased intelligence
- Difficulty sucking or feeding in infants
- Hearing problems
- Increased drooling
- Irregular breathing
- Learning disabilities
- Limited range of motion
- Partial or full loss of movement (paralysis)
- Peg teeth
- Problems swallowing (at all ages)
- Speech problems (dysarthria)
- Urinary incontinence
- Vision problems
- Vomiting or constipation
Not all Instances of Cerebral Palsy are Caused by Medical Malpractice
As with all potential cases involving poor medical outcomes, we believe we owe it to our clients, the medical community, and society generally to have potential cerebral palsy medical malpractice claims reviewed in advance by highly qualified, impartial expert physicians. We ask them to tell us whether or not a devastating outcome fell below the standard of care legally required of any particular medical provider.
We take considerable pride in our ability to identify the best available experts with regard to every potential cerebral palsy claim. This is among the most important elements of a law firm's work in the medical malpractice field.
We recognize our obligation to our clients to fully evaluate claims before a lawsuit is filed. If our evaluations, including the opinions of our experts, reveal that a claim lacks merit, we explain this in detail to our clients, so they will fully understand what happened and why.
On the other hand, if we are persuaded that a poor outcome was the result of a medical provider's negligence, we will use all our expertise and resources to secure justice and compensation for our clients.
