Causes & Types of Cerebral Palsy
Research indicates that nearly 10,000 infants are diagnosed with cerebral palsy each year. This staggering number may be greater in actuality, as a proper diagnosis may not be made for a few years after birth. When caused by medical malpractice, cerebral palsy can result from many mistakes, including a lack of oxygen to the baby's brain and birth trauma.
It is important to determine the root of these medical mistakes. Whether a doctor failed to appropriately monitor fetal heart rate during labor or neglected to identify a prolapsed umbilical cord, those responsible must be held accountable for their negligence.
There are many different types of cerebral palsy, each ranging in severity, including:
- Spastic cerebral palsy: Makes up the majority of most diagnoses and is characterized by stiffness and difficulty moving. Patients suffering from spastic cerebral palsy struggle to change positions.
- Athetoid cerebral palsy: Roughly 10 percent of cerebral palsy cases are attributed to this type. Symptoms include involuntary movement, slurred speech, and low muscle tone.
- Ataxic cerebral palsy: Also accounts for around 10 percent of cerebral palsy cases. Ataxic cerebral palsy patients struggle with vision, balance, and muscle movements.
No doctor or health professional should get away with mistakes made during the birth of a child. Get in touch with our Weston cerebral palsy attorney to ensure that this doesn't happen.

His experience and intelligence in his dealings makes working with him very easy. He was a godsend to us in a time of extreme duress. If you are looking for an excellent attorney, look no further. 5 STARS!- Mindy A.
I can’t thank David Rash enough for everything he has done for me! Not only did he go out of his way to make sure I got everything I deserved, David was very caring and polite. He went out of his way to keep me informed and just to check in on my health. He’s a good guy and very very good at what he does! A+! If you want someone that actually cares, go with Rash Mueller. Thanks again David.- Jordan
When I say..you’ve reached the right people..ur lucky to be in contact with them!! Although they couldn’t help me with my case..Leading up to the decision lori kept in contact, showed empathy, was straight forward with all detail! Lori told me more than my own drs or the hospital did..I have closure because of HER! So I still won! My case was complicated to move forward due to other reasons..but she ain’t never let me down when speaking to her! She speaks to you as if she knew you forever! I appreciate this firm so much because before they say NO..they try, the listen and the put work in!!! Thank you guys so much for everything!- Adrian B.
From the first phone conversation with Lori, to the first time meeting with David and Jeff, all the way through and to the conclusion of my case, I felt as if these people truly cared about what happened to me. They didn’t just see a potential “case”. They were upset with my situation. They wanted to help. Through the years that this whole process takes, I have gotten to know them a bit better, and they have gotten to know me. I now consider them less “my legal team”, and more a part of my extended family, whether they realize it, or like it, or not. I so appreciate their kindness, genuine compassion, and “got my back” attitude. I hope you are never in a situation to need these folks, but if you ever are, I highly recommend talking to them and seeing if it’s a right fit for all.- Joel F.
