Goldstein & Hayes, P.C.: Serving Families with Birth Injuries

Cerebral palsy is a term used to describe a group of chronic conditions affecting body movement and muscle coordination. It is caused by damage to one or more areas of the brain during fetal development; before, during or after birth; or during infancy. Cerebral palsy is a serious disorder that can impact a child for the rest of his or her life.

At Goldstein & Hayes, P.C., we are dedicated to helping children and families when this condition could and should have been prevented. If you think your child has suffered from cerebral palsy due to the negligence of a physician, contact us today for experienced legal representation.

Our Atlanta brain injury lawyers have years of experience helping parents recover for injuries to their children during birth. If you believe your child suffered from a birth injury or is diagnosed with cerebral palsy because of an error or negligence of a physician, learn your options today.

Causes of Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is one of the most common childhood disorders. It is a non-progressive brain disorder, which means that the damage does not worsen over time. The symptoms can change with time, however, and may become better or worse as the child grows older. Many children with cerebral palsy have an accompanying seizure disorder and some level of mental disability, along with learning, vision, hearing, speech, or language problems.

Causes of cerebral palsy include:

  • Serious diseases like meningitis
  • Infections during childbirth
  • Severe jaundice in the infant
  • Oxygen deprivation to the brain or trauma to the head
  • Metabolic and physical trauma of childbirth
  • Rh incompatibility between mother and infant
