Cerebral Palsy Cases in Miami

Helping You Pursue Justice for Your Child

If your son or daughter is showing symptoms of or has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, you may be wondering whether a mistake during delivery was the cause. At Freidin Brown, P.A., our Miami birth injury lawyers have 100 years of collective experience investigating negligence and medical malpractice cases. We can help determine when the brain injury that caused your child's cerebral palsy occurred and help stop a health care professional from making the same mistake twice.

What is Cerebral Palsy?

There is currently no cure for cerebral palsy (CP); it is a disorder, not a disease, that affects the parts of the brain that control muscle movement and coordination. Most individuals who have cerebral palsy were born with it, whether due to a brain injury that occurred while still in the womb or to a birth injury that occurred due to a labor and delivery complication.

Symptoms of Cerebral Palsy

Your child may show signs of cerebral palsy right away or symptoms may take up to three years to develop. Indicators that your child suffered a brain injury during birth that may have caused cerebral palsy include:

  • Seizures
  • First breaths - Did your child breathe (scream) after delivery or was his or her first breath delayed?
  • Body alignment - Does the positioning of your newborn's head appear slightly off?
  • Visible weakness - Does your child appear to lack muscle tone or coordination?
  • Tight limbs - Are your child's hands, arms or legs tight?
  • Developmental milestones - Has your child missed major milestones, such as attempting to sit or crawl within the first year?

An MRI or CT scan is usually necessary to determine the extent of any damage to the brain and guide a treatment or rehabilitation plan. Children with cerebral palsy will often have special needs for the rest of their lives, such as mobility assistance like a wheelchair, physical therapy, speech therapy and/or special education classes.

The good news is that with the medical and educational resources available today, a child with cerebral palsy can live a full, normal life. Freidin Brown, P.A. can help you seek lifetime benefits for your child if their cerebral palsy was caused by negligence or a mistake during the birth process.
