Cerebral Palsy Injury Attorneys in Kansas City

Fighting Hard to Help Your Family Obtain Justice

When an infant has been injured during birth, family members are overcome with a flood of emotions. Families may experience pain, grief, and uncertainty over what the future holds for the baby. Cerebral palsy is a condition that may result from a neurological injury an infant received during birth. Although cerebral palsy typically occurs because of unavoidable complications during childbirth, sometimes, a doctor’s negligence may have been the direct cause.

The legal team at Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C., is dedicated to holding doctors accountable for the birth injuries caused by their negligence. We seek to help you recover compensation for injuries suffered by your infant.

Contact our Kansas City birth injury attorneys at (816) 484-3776 for a free case evaluation of your cerebral palsy claim.

What Are the Causes of Cerebral Palsy?

Cerebral palsy is a neurological disorder that stiffens or loosens a child’s muscles, affecting his or her balance and muscle movement. Children with cerebral palsy may also be prone to seizures or suffer from intellectual disabilities. Cerebral palsy occurs when an infant’s brain is deprived of oxygen during birth.

This can be caused by several factors, such as:

  • Infections during pregnancy
  • Premature birth
  • Prolonged labor
  • Neglecting to order a C-section
  • Failure to identify lack of oxygen during birth
  • Improper use of forceps
  • Infant born with umbilical cord around the neck

If you believe your child is suffering from cerebral palsy as a result of a physician’s negligence, contact our firm immediately. Our team can thoroughly evaluate the facts related to events leading up to the birth injury. We work closely with medical experts to determine if your child’s cerebral palsy is a result of the physician’s failure to fulfill the medical standard of care during delivery.
