Dallas Cerebral Palsy Lawyers

Cerebral palsy is a non-progressive brain disorder that occurs as a result of a disturbance that occurs to the brain of a fetus or young infant. The disorder manifests differently in every individual, but symptoms of CP include speech impediments, poor motor skills, unusual posture, trouble eating, and weak or stiff muscles. Unfortunately, there is no way to reserve the effects of cerebral palsy entirely, although there are methods of treatment to address symptoms. Dallas cerebral palsy lawyers know how devastating learning that your child has a life-altering disability can be for parents.

At Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter, our lawyers are committed to fighting for the legal rights of fellow Dallas families. Those families whose children are diagnosed with cerebral palsy may be able to take legal action against the liable medical professionals and hospitals that were in charge of caring for the infant early on in his or her life. Our Dallas lawyers are ready to help you through the legal process of seeking compensation for the lifelong medical expenses associated with this condition.

Causes of Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy can be caused by a variety of factors, such as genetics, prematurity, or even injuries and illnesses to the baby during pregnancy or birth. Often times, cerebral palsy surfaces as the result of medical malpractice. Some of the causes of cerebral palsy include:

  • Infections during pregnancy
  • Physical trauma during birth
  • Severe oxygen deprivation during birth
  • Birth defects

If your baby was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and you believe it is the result of medical negligence surrounding birth, our lawyers may be able to help you seek compensation.
