Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral Palsy

A birth defect due to negligence calls for tough-minded representation

Cerebral palsy refers to a motor coordination problem linked to an injury to the brain. The brain controls voluntary movement and coordination. If your infant is suffering from cerebral palsy due to a medical professional’s negligence, it’s important to speak with an experienced attorney. At Meade Law Group, we don’t farm out birth injury cases to other lawyers. We can have a cerebral palsy lawyer in Tennessee provide determined representation. Call (423) 464-7779 today for a free consultation. With a compassionate and focused lawyer on your side, you can start on your path to justice.

A newborn who is afflicted with cerebral palsy may have been a victim of any of the following doctor errors:

  • Failure to react promptly to a problem involving the umbilical cord
  • Inappropriate use of a vacuum extractor
  • Inappropriate use of forceps

How cerebral palsy may develop

Cerebral palsy may occur in 2.5 per 1,000 live births in the United States. A premature birth, in which the baby is born before the brain is fully developed, may lead to cerebral palsy. Babies born at full term, however, can develop the condition if there is hypoxia (when there is a deficiency in the amount of oxygen reaching tissues) or asphyxia (when the body is deprived of oxygen) linked to the delivery.

A cerebral palsy medical malpractice case requires careful investigation. It’s important to have an experienced medical malpractice attorney who understands the law and has access to medical experts.

At Meade Law Group, we have a physician on staff who is both a doctor and a lawyer – Suresh Nekuri, M.D. J.D.

Symptoms of cerebral palsy

Cerebral palsy symptoms may include the following:

  • Facial ticks
  • Muscle spasms
  • Under-developed fine motor control
  • Posture problems

We understand how difficult medical malpractice cases can be for Tennessee families. We maintain confidentiality and use discretion throughout a birth defect and injury case and typically negotiate with insurance companies, not doctors.
