California Cerebral Palsy Birth Injuries Attorney
When poor prenatal care or a birth injury results in cerebral palsy, a lawsuit may be filed against medical doctors, hospitals or other healthcare providers for malpractice. Cerebral palsy is one of the most common birth defects, occurring once in every 500 births. Sometimes, the disorder is caused by a genetic defect, but many cases are preventable and caused by the negligence of medical staff.
When preparing to file a lawsuit, it is important to hire an attorney who is highly skilled in California birth injury law. Interview personal injury attorneys to determine who has successfully won medical-malpractice lawsuits for birth injuries and the amount of monetary damages each one has been able to obtain for his clients. Remember, however, that each case is different, and the financial compensation won will vary from case to case.

- Stiffness and an inability to move easily
- Involuntary movements
- Poor balance and depth perception
